German under-20 international Weigl welcomes Liverpool, Tottenham interest: 'I will make the step'

German youth international welcomes interest from Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

German youth international Julian Weigl says he welcomes interest from abroad.

Weigl plays for 1860 Munich and has been a regular for them in central midfield this season, providing one assist in his six starts to date.

Last week he found the scoresheet for Germany's under-20 side against Holland and newspaper BILD reported that scouts from Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool were watching on.

With a tempting €5 million release clause in his contract, it is little wonder the Premier League sides are taking an interest in signing him.

Weigl told Sport1 that he welcomes his suitors, and expects to make a big move sooner rather than later.

"I get told about interest from foreigh clubs. My friends send me friends what it says about me in the papers.

"I will of course make sometime later this step. I feel very comfortable at the moment and at 1860 the club builds me up."

At only 19, Weigl has the honour of being the youngest captain in 1860 Munich's history, and it's clear the club are desperate to keep him.

It won't be easy due to the clause in his contract, and Liverpool or Spurs would be wise to try to sign him up now before another German club pays the fee, and makes it even tougher to one day bring him on board.
