Liverpool are the huge favourites to sign 22-year-old Bundesliga star

Liverpool are the huge favourites to sign Schalke midfield goal machine Leon Goretzka amid reports they have an agreement to sign him in January.

Spanish outlet Don Balon claim that the Germany international, 22, want to move to Anfield and the green light has already been given for a deal that would cost less than £36million.

It is said that Barcelona have tabled low offers for the goalscoring midfielder but he “does not want to know” about them as he sets his sights on a winter move to Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Bet Victor have priced Liverpool as the 6/4 favourites to land Goretzka in the January transfer window, a long way ahead of Arsenal (6/1) and Bayern Munich (8/1), the next best priced clubs, in the betting.

Goretzka has been in outstanding form for club and country this season, although he has missed Schalke’s last four matches through injury.
