Red boss Jurgen Klopp has kept a close eye on the 20-year-old Germany international and will fight Bayern Munich for his services in the summer

Jurgen Klopp hopes to secure a deal to land Bayer Leverkusen attacker Julian Brandt in the summer, according to reports from The Liverpool Echo.

The 20-year-old Germany international has long been linked with a move to Anfield, with the Liverpool boss an admirer from his Bundesliga days with former club Borussia Dortmund.

Klopp and his team have monitored Brandt for some time and are preparing a £20 million offer for him at the end of the season, though they face competition from German giants Bayern Munich, who Brandt has already rejected once.
