After Van Dyke, Liverpool is approaching its next big goal
Liverpool managed to meet Jürgen Klop’s desire to attract Southampton defender Vijil Van Dijk against a record 75m pounds for the footballer, and Schalke’s midfielder Leon Goretzka was the next transfer goal for Merseyside. According to information from Marca, the English club leaders have informed their colleagues from Gelsenkirchen that they are still interested in Goretzka. The German national may replace Philippe Coettinho next season’s Anfield, who will almost certainly pass to Barcelona.
Goretzka has a contract with the “king-sons” by the summer, and it seems that he will not renew it. Schalke is aware of the intention of the 22-year-old footballer, but they have made a desperate attempt to hold him back by offering him an annual salary of 12 million euros. Some media have announced that he already has a pre-contract with Liverpool. “Soon I will decide, I have to think about things from all angles, I do not want to rush, my future will be clear in January,” Goretzka said recently.
In the Bundesliga season, the midfielder has 11 matches and 4 goals, but missed the last three Schalke matches because of a knee injury. It is known that, in addition to Liverpool, a desire to attract him has made Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester United.
