Liverpool are interested in Schalke midfielder Weston McKennie, according to CBS.
The report states that McKennie has drawn interest from clubs in England, Spain, France and Germany.
The report adds that McKennie would like to play for a club that competes in Europe.
Schalke are apparently struggling financially, which means that several key players are expected to leave the club in the upcoming transfer window. CBS suggest that McKennie could be one of those players to depart the club.
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
I would personally like to see a few more goals next to his name. Liverpool don’t score enough goals from midfield.
In the Premier League this season, midfielder Jordan Henderson has scored four goals. No other Liverpool midfielder has scored more.
But, McKennie is still only 21 years of age, which means that he has plenty of time left in his career to add goals to his game.
With that being the case, if Liverpool do want McKennie, they should buy him now.
McKennie apparently wants to play for a club that competes in Europe, and Liverpool compete in the UEFA Champions League.
That does give Liverpool an advantage in terms of signing McKennie.
