​Liverpool target move for Schalke defender Howedes as van Dijk deal looks unlikely

Liverpool have shifted focus towards Schalke defender Benedikt Howedes after accepting defeat in their pursuit of Southampton centre-back Virgil van Dijk.

German outlet DW Sports claims that the Reds are planning a £18million for the 29-year-old. The Germany international hasspent his entire professional career with Schalke and he recently revealed that he is now looking for a move abroad.

"I've said I won't move within [Germany] and can picture a move abroad," Howedes told Funke Sport. "As of today, that point in time hasn't come.

"I received offers from other clubs after the surprising demotion from captain… that my agent checked and answered."
