Liverpool are taking a close look at Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus.
According to reports, Neuhaus has a £34.5million release clause in his contract which has alerted interested clubs.
Neuhaus played the whole of Monchengladbach's defeat to Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League tie.
BILD journalist Christian Falk said: “It's true that they've [Liverpool] been watching the player for a while.
“The whole thing is not yet concrete according to our information, but it can, of course, become concrete, and he asks to play there.
“Neuhaus has an exit clause of 40 million, which could be triggered in the summer.
“Bayern has to save money after the 42.5 million transfer of Upamecano; it is currently rather unlikely that they will put another 40 million on the table.
“That means it must be another league if Neuhaus wants to change, and there is the Premier League and Liverpool, of course."
