Liverpool fans react on Twitter as Klopp reportedly targets £20m-rated attacker

By Will Butcher

Liverpool are reportedly interested in bringing Bayer Leverkusen ace Julian Brandt to Anfield – and fans are desperate to see Jurgen Klopp complete a deal on Twitter.

The Liverpool Echo claim that the Reds will have to wait until the summer to make a move for the £20million-rated attacker, as a deal will not be possible in January.

It is believed that scouts have watched the exciting winger on multiple occasions, with Klopp a long-term admirer after first watching Brandt during his spell as Borussia Dortmund boss.

The 20-year-old starred against Premier League rivals Tottenham in the Champions League this season, but the Reds will face tough competition from German champions Bayern Munich.

Liverpool fans have reacted on Twitter with a burning desire to see Klopp strike a deal for the four-time Germany international, with many claiming he is a player that is capable of adding to Klopp’s side.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The left winger is in a sparkling run of form, after having a hand in nine goals this season. Scoring three of them, Brandt has also supplied six assists in 22 league and cup outings.

With plenty of experience after making his debut in February 2014 against Schalke, Brandt has clocked up a total of 115 appearances for Leverkusen.

In other Liverpool transfer news, Klopp has made a decision on another attacking target with a release clause of £20million.
