Liverpool, Man City to rival Bayern for midfield star Neuhaus
Liverpool and Man City are in the race to sign Borussia Monchengladbach star Florian Neuhaus this summer, according to reports.
The talented midfielder is currently enjoying an impressive season in the Bundesliga.
His performances have attracted interest from across Europe, including German giants Bayern Munich.
FEATURE: Premier League winners and, well, Jose Mourinho
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool and Man City are prepared to rival Bayern for Neuhaus’ signature.
The Premier League rivals both see him as a future star and a potential success in England.
Liverpool want to sign Neuhaus as a replacement for Gini Wijnaldum. The Dutchman looks set to join Barcelona with his contract expiring in June.
City, meanwhile, could sign Neuhaus as a long term midfield partner for Rodri. Ilkay Gundogan currently operates that position and has been exceptional in recent weeks.
But Pep Guardiola is always open to improving his squad.
The trio are joined by Spurs, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus in the hunt for Neuhaus.
Spurs were linked with the midfielder last month. It’s thought that manager Jose Mourinho wants to sign Neuhaus if Dele Alli leaves for Paris Saint-Germain.
Juventus and Dortmund are monitoring the player’s situation with Gladbach. They’re expected to bid, should the player demonstrate his willingness to leave.
Neuhaus has registered six goals and six assists in 29 appearances this term.
That includes a goal in the recent 2-1 defeat to FC Koln.
Earlier in the season, Neuhaus scored as Gladbach gained a surprise 3-2 league victory over Bayern.
That seems to have impressed Bayern officials, who are now desperate to sign the 23-year-old.
Neuhaus joined Gladbach from 1860 Munich in July 2017 on a free transfer.
He’s now one of their star players and has even made three appearances for Germany, scoring one goal.
The player looks destined for a major move this summer with a host of top clubs interested.
Liverpool and City will have to spend big if they want to land him.
