Report: Liverpool join Tottenham in Jeremy Toljan chase

Jeremy Toljan in action for Germany

Liverpool are considering rivalling Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign Hoffenheim right-back Jeremy Toljan.

According to a report from Sky Sports, Liverpool have joined Tottenham in the race to sign Hoffenheim full-back Jeremy Toljan this summer.

With Spurs selling Kyle Walker to Manchester City, it is hardly a surprise that they appear to be in the running to sign the 22-year-old, who has made 54 Bundesliga appearances since making his professional debut in 2013.

But Mauricio Pochettino's men will have to see off competition if they hope to land Toljan - with Sky Sports adding that Liverpool are also keen on the youngster.

Though the Reds have Nathaniel Clyne in their ranks while Trent Alexander-Arnold has impressed when given a chance, it is also little surprise that the Merseyside outfit have seemingly been tempted into the race for Toljan.

Sky Sports reports that with one year left on his contract with his current club, the defender - who was part of the Germany team that won the under-21 European Championships this year and was included in the team of the tournament - is likely to be available for little over £3 million.

Considering that Walker's move to Manchester City cost the Citizens £53 million, according to the Guardian, signing Toljan for the bargain fee surely has the potential to prove to be a fantastic deal for either club if they are able to land his signature.
