According to 90min.com, Liverpool have received “positive reports” on Konrad Laimer of RB Leipzig and Ruben Neves of Wolves.
Neves and Laimer are reportedly being considered as targets ahead of a “late window” bid, with manager Jurgen Klopp now admitting that the Reds do need a new midfielder before the transfer window shuts.
Given that Laimer’s contract with Leipzig expires in less than a year, he is believed to be the more likely option. The Bundesliga club are willing to sell for a fee between €25m (£21m) and €30m (£25m), according to reports.
Bayern Munich made an effort to sign the Austrian international but their €24m (£20 million) offer was turned down.
Neves is probably going to be a harder bargain to negotiate. Wolves reportedly placed a £70 million asking price on the Portuguese midfielder, and it is believed that the figure has already turned away teams like Manchester United and Arsenal.
