Five potential transfer targets Liverpool will watch closely when Bundesliga returns

Football will be back next Saturday (May 16) when the Bundesliga returns and Liverpool will be watching closely. Not only does the action offer hope that the Premier League may resume, but Jurgen Klopp has his eye on several players plying their trade in his homeland. Express Sport looks at the five stars the Reds will be monitoring in the coming weeks.

Timo Werner

It goes without saying that Liverpool will be carrying out further checks on Werner.

The striker is hot property and reportedly their transfer priority heading into the summer window.

Fresh claims this week suggested he could be available for £43million if RB Leipzig do not win the title.

They are currently five points adrift of league leaders Bayern Munich while Werner remains four goals behind top scorer Robert Lewandowski.

He will be looking to finish the season in fine form in a bid to earn a move to the Premier League.

Jadon Sancho

The same applies for Jadon Sancho, who remains Manchester United’s top transfer target.

Liverpool have asked Borussia Dortmund to be kept in the loop in regards to his future.

Klopp has also been in touch with his contacts at the club to get the inside track on the winger.

Liverpool are unlikely to sign Sancho unless Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane leave.

Milot Rashica

The president of the Kosovan Football Federation Agim Amedi confirmed Liverpool are interested in Milot Rashica this week.

The Werder Bremen forward would help bolster Klopp’s attacking options.

His arrival could be dependent on the future of Xherdan Shaqiri.

The Swiss international is set to consider his future and should he leave, Liverpool will need to sign a replacement.

Kai Havertz

The German is a player that has impressed Liverpool but they are unlikely to launch a move for him.

That’s because Bayer Leverkusen are asking for up to £90million for their most prized asset.

Competition for places is already high in Liverpool’s midfield, so they are unlikely to spend that kind of money on a player who will not start.

Havertz remains one for the future though and Liverpool will still be keeping an eye on him.

Denis Zakaria

The midfielder has been a standout performer in the Bundesliga this season with Borussia Monchengladbach.

All the while Gini Wijnaldum’s contract situation remains unresolved, Liverpool need to have a Plan B.

The Dutchman remains integral to Klopp’s plans moving forward but the situation is threatening to drag on into the final 12 months of his deal.

Zakaria is the kind of player that fits the club’s transfer strategy.
