Bayer Leverkusen forward Julian Brandt’s future is set to be decided this week as a number of clubs circle for his signature this summer.
The 23-year-old has attracted the attention of the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund and with a relatively low release clause, a Leverkusen exit looks likely.
The Germany international can be snapped up for just €25 million (£22m), which could prove to be tremendous value for the winger.
Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller says that clubs have already ‘come knocking’ and Brandt’s future will be all sorted out in the coming days.
‘We know exactly which clubs have knocked [for Brandt],’ Voller told Sky Sport News. ‘Brandt has some requests, and in the next five, six or seven days there will be a decision.’
Brandt has 24 caps for Germany, scoring two goals, while he scored six in 32 Bundesliga appearances this season for Leverkusen.
He has vast experience for a player who has only just turned 23, making over 200 appearnces for Leverkusen since making his debut in the 2013-14 season.
Not necessarily known for his goals, but more for his assists, Brandt provided 11 in the Bundesliga this season, only behind Jadon Sancho and Joshua Kimmich.
However, Spurs, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain could end disappointed in their pursuit of the German, with the Sun reporting that he favours staying in the Bundesliga and moving to Borussia Dortmund.
Whichever destination Brandt chooses, we are likely to discover his next move this week.
