Liverpool have reportedly held talks with Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus over a possible summer transfer.
The Reds are in the market for a new player in this position following the recent departure of Georginio Wijnaldum, who recently signed for PSG on a free transfer.
One star who has emerged as a replacement for the Dutchman is Neuhaus, who is under contract until 2024 at Monchengladbach.
Initial talks are believed to have taken place, but the Reds are yet to make a formal offer for the 24-year-old midfielder.
Neuhaus could well be tempted by the opportunity to work under Jurgen Klopp and refused to rule out the idea of playing abroad during an interview with Sport1.
"It will be very important how I feel, what my gut feeling is, how much you have the feeling that the club really wants you,” he said when asked about the possibility of a departure.
“I’m not committed. I’m a person who likes to dare. I could very well imagine going abroad.
“I don’t necessarily have to go to Bayern Munich, but I don’t necessarily have to change, because I feel very much at home at Borussia Monchengladbach at the moment.
“That is a good feeling and another club must first come across that feeling in the talks.”
The talented midfielder scored six goals and registered six assists in the Bundesliga this season, helping his side to an eighth-placed finish.
He is also part of Joachim Low's Germany squad for Euro 2020 and could be given the chance to prove his quality on the biggest stage this summer.
Monchengladbach's sporting director Max Eberl previously suggested that Neuhaus would not be allowed to leave in the upcoming transfer window, but it remains to be seen whether this will remain the case.
"If he will leave the club? With the best will in the world, I can’t imagine it," said Eberl back in February.
"It’s nonsense, very simple. We are always asked who could leave us and it is a bit disrespectful the way we are treated."
