Three U-21 Players Who Liverpool Can Target This Summer
Jurgen Klopp has made some huge progress since taking over the Anfield just less than two years ago and is now looking forward to a season filled with European and domestic football. The German tactician is already busy in trying to add some quality players to his first team and is looking at some of the finest players to make a move for during the summer.
The manager will certainly look at some established stars to improve the first team quality but Klopp will also have an eye on young talents who can come good in the years to come. Liverpool have already been linked to a few such youngsters and here are three such U21 stars that the Reds should look at this summer.
Emre Mor (Borussia Dortmund)
One of the most exciting prospects in European football at the moment, Mor was not able to establish himself in the first team under Thomas Tuchel, since his move to the Signal Iduna Park last summer. However, he is still an exciting talent and Jurgen Klopp is closely monitoring his situation. He is also wanted by a couple of other clubs but Liverpool are ready to take him on loan and this could be the final piece of the attacking puzzle at Anfield.
Max Meyer (FC Schalke)
Another star constantly linked with a move to Anfield is German U21 skipper Max Meyer. One of the most intriguing talents in Germany at the moment, Meyer is expected to leave Schalke and there are no shortage of suitors, who are already starting to express their interest. Klopp is a long term admirer of the player and will surely not let this opportunity go and Liverpool should get his deal done as quickly as possible.
Jonathan Tah (Bayer Leverkusen)
Though he isn’t be the first choice target for Liverpool at centre-back, Tah is a backup option for Virgil van Dijk. The Dutch centre-half is ideal to solve the problems for Liverpool but Tah is slowly establishing himself as one of the best in the business and has already been scouted by Liverpool. The Reds genuine need a central defender and if they miss out on Van Dijk, the 21-year old German is more than an able option.
