Liverpool winger Ryan Kent may be set for a loan move to the Bundesliga.
The starlet took to Twitter this weekend to write: “Ich kann nicht warten.”
The tweet was later deleted.
This roughly translates to “I cannot wait,” suggesting the former Coventry City loanee could be heading for Germany.
According to reports, Kent is one of two Liverpool youngsters being targeted by Hannover.
Ben Woodburn is also wanted by the Bundesliga side.
SC Freiburg and VfB Stuttgart have also contacted Liverpool, it is claimed.
The news could come as a blow to a host of Championship clubs who have been linked with the 20-year-old winger this summer, with Middlesbrough and Leeds United showing particular interest.
The 20-year-old winger earned plenty of plaudits during a successful stint at Barnsley last term, where he made 45 appearances and was named the Tykes’ Young Player of the Year.
Before tasting Championship football for the first time last season, Kent only had 17 League One appearances with Coventry City.
Earlier this month, it was reported Aston Villa were poised to complete the loan signing of the Reds youngster.
Kent’s sole senior appearance for Liverpool to date came in the FA Cup draw at Exeter City in January 2016, shortly after returning from a four-month stint at Coventry City.
The former Coventry City winger is determined to realise his dream of becoming a first-team regular at Anfield, though.
Kent enjoyed an impressive pre-season, appearing in seven of the Reds’ eight friendlies and catching the eye with his cameo in the win at Bayern Munich.
It prompted Jurgen Klopp to intimate the winger could be retained in the senior squad, with player confident he can break his way into the plans of the Reds boss.
