Jurgen Klopp is set to sign German wonderkid who is tipped to be ‘Sadio Mane’s successor’ as many senior players face uncertainty at Liverpool.
The Liverpool manager could sign one of world football’s hottest young properties to replace Sadio Mane.
Klopp has been backed to bring in German wonderkid Florian Wirtz as Sadio Mane’s successor.
The Bayer Leverkusen striker has five goals in 14 Bundesliga games and has the support of a club great in his bid to join Liverpool.
It comes as a number of Reds players consider leaving the club during the January transfer window.
With the January transfer market officially open, several Liverpool stars will be at a crossroads in their careers this month.
A handful of periphery players will be well aware that playing time may be far simpler to obtain by elsewhere, while other stars with expiring contracts will be aware that the club may decide to sell them sooner rather than later.
And, as the transfer market draws to a close, Mirror Football has run the rule over a number of Liverpool players who could decide whether to stay or go this month.
Florian Wirtz is one of the most sought-after young players in the world of football.
Considering his young age and the footballing pedigree of the country he represents, the German winger has already made four appearances for his country.
This season, Wirtz has been linked with Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester United, but a Bayer Leverkusen veteran has predicted that he will join Liverpool in the near future.
Former Leverkusen ace Charly Korbel believes Wirtz has the potential to succeed Sadio Mane in Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
