Schalke star Leon Goretzka has dropped a hint that he’s keen to join Liverpool in the January transfer window. The 22-year-old midfielder is out of contract at the end of the 2017/18 campaign and it’s understood a number of elite European clubs are vying for his signature.
Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea have all been linked with Goretzka, but reports earlier this week suggested that Bayern Munich were on the cusp of completing a deal for the Germany international.
However, both Goretzka’s agent and Schalke’s sporting director denied rumours that the player had agreed terms to move to the Allianz Arena. And now the youngster has ‘liked’ and Instagram post hinting that he wants to work under Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.
‘Jurgen Klopp Passion! #TB @liverpoolfc’ the post from Visubal reads. Asked about rumours Goretza is set to join Bayern, his agent Jorg Neubauer said: ‘When the decision has been made, Leon and I will inform Schalke first of all.’
Schalke director Christian Heidel stated: ‘Leon has not informed us that he has decided to change the air. ‘And I trust Leon and his representative, with whom I had contact yesterday.’
