Liverpool transfer news: Jurgen Klopp faces Bayern Munich battle for Julian Draxler deal
Liverpool are hard at work strengthening a squad which has already been bolstered with the signings of Naby Keita and Fabinho.
Xherdan Shaqiri is closing in on a move to Anfield too, with a medical currently underway at the Reds’ Melwood training ground.
Jurgen Klopp is eager to add depth to his playing staff as they prepare to challenge on four fronts once again next season.
The latest reports indicate the Liverpool boss has a battle on his hands if he wants to make Draxler his latest buy.
According to Transfer Market Web, Bayern have lodged an enquiry with PSG regarding Draxler.
The Bundesliga giants are planning in case on-loan James Rodriguez makes a sooner-than-expected return to parent club Real Madrid.
And Draxler, who started his career in Germany with Schalke, is in their sights after 18 months in Paris.
Transfer Market Web suggest Draxler is likely to stick with PSG for now, particularly after Javier Pastore’s exit helped to alleviate any Financial Fair Play (FFP) worries.
But he could reconsider his options if he does not get a proper look-in under new Parc des Princes boss Thomas Tuchel.
Liverpool will be ready-and-waiting in case Draxler decides to end his stay at PSG, where he is under contract until 2021.
However, Bayern Munich will not let them have it easy with the 2014 World Cup winner firmly in their sights.
Draxler is one of a number of players Liverpool are considering moves for ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.
Klopp is also keen on Lyon skipper Nabil Fekir, with a deal potentially set to be resurrected after Sunday’s World Cup final.
Fekir will probably have to settle for a place on France’s bench against Croatia in Moscow having played a bit-part role at the tournament.
