Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhuas is open to a transfer away from the Bundesliga amid interest from Liverpool.
The Echo understands that the Reds have been monitoring the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder in recent months and will continue to do so throughout this summer’s European Championships.
It is also understood that bringing in a new midfielder is not deemed a priority at Anfield, but that situation could change depending on what happens to Liverpool's current midfield personnel.
Gini Wijnaldum will join Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent at the start of next month, and the Reds could well look to bring in a replacement.
Neuhaus could be that replacement, and the player himself has already stated what he wants for his future.
The likes of Bayern Munich and Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for Neuhaus, but the 24-year-old insists that he doesn't see himself being forced into moving to a new club.
“I am a person who likes to dare something. I could very well imagine going abroad. I don't necessarily have to go to Bayern Munich,” Neuhaus recently told German outlet Sport1 .
"But I don't necessarily have to leave either, because I'm currently feeling very much at home at Borussia Monchengladbach.
"I have big goals - and something was missing. What exactly? A title.
"I want to win titles in my career, that drives me. A year with a title win, that would really be a dream year.”

And back in February, Neuhaus was quizzed about his future and whether he sees himself leaving the Bundesliga side in the future.
"It's really not that big of an issue for me now," Neuhaus said.
"I play at Borussia, I have a contract, and we as a club are still pursuing very big goals this season.
“I can't say what will happen in the summer at the moment. I'm also very relaxed about the future.
“Borussia is a club where I was able to develop excellently and where everything is there. I know what I have about Borussia."
