According to a report from the Daily Star, Liverpool are lining up a swoop for Bayer Leverkusen winger Julian Brandt as an alternative to Lyon ace Nabil Fekir.

The 22-year-old is extremely highly regarded in his homeland, so much so that he was selected as part of Germany's World Cup squad ahead of the brilliant Leroy Sane.

Brandt is at an age where he will surely begin to improve and become an even more well-rounded player, and who better to oversee his development than Klopp?

According to Transfer Markt, the German is valued at £35.4 million, and that would represent decent value for Liverpool in today's day and age.
