Liverpool receive huge boost in chase of Bundesliga midfielder

XhakaLiverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been handed the perfect news to accompany their midweek pints this evening, as a top target has fuelled speculation of a move to Anfield this summer.

TalkSport states the Reds are keeping tabs on Borussia Monchengladbach ace Granit Xhaka, with the Swiss international emerging as a prime summer target for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

The 23-year-old captain of the Bundesliga side has attracted vast interest from across European football with his performances in recent years- but he’s given a boost to sides in England with his latest comments.

Speaking to Sport1.deXhaka revealed it is his childhood dream to play in the Premier League- which seemingly opens up the door for Liverpool to make a swoop.

“Everybody has a childhood dream, and for me it is England,”

“That doesn’t mean that I have to or would like to go there – I’m extremely happy here and everything suits me down to the ground – but you do have to take a look around and talk with the club.

“Gladbach have given me everything I wanted and this has become a second home for me.”

Our landlord doesn’t think that this will work out for Liverpool though, as he feels their lack of Champions League football will prove to be telling for a player of Xhaka’s calibre.

Liverpool fans, can you beat your domestic rivals to land Xhaka’s signature? Let us know in the comments below!
