The German midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season, and is free to talk to non-English clubs from Monday.

If these reports are correct, Liverpool could have a formidable midfield for the 2018/19 campaign, having already secured a deal to sign Naby Keita from RB Leipzig, although it looks increasingly likely that Emre Can will be leaving the club on a free transfer, with Juventus keen on signing him.

After impressing in the Bundesliga, the forward wants to try his hand in the Premier League, and attracted interest from Tottenham Hotspur as well as the Reds and Arsenal before making up his mind where he wants to go.

Liverpool aren't hanging around after landing Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk.
