Reported Liverpool transfer target Florian Neuhaus has taken a relaxed approach to speculation over his future with Borussia Monchengladbach.

The German midfielder has refused to rule out a summer exit from Monchengladbach, amid interest from Liverpool and Manchester City, and adds that he is concentrated on finishing the current season with his club.

Speaking to German outlet Kicker, as transcribed by the Daily Mail, Neuhaus responded to talk about a potential transfer. “I have a contract until 2024 and I have very big goals for this season.

“That’s what I’m concentrating on now. [Transfer talk] is really not a big issue for me now.

“I play at Borussia, I have a contract, and we as a club are still pursuing very big goals this season. I can’t say what will happen in the summer at the moment.

“I’m also very relaxed about the future. Borussia is a club where I was able to develop excellently and where everything is there. I know what I have with Borussia.”

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT 

Neuhaus has been in impressive form for Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga, which could be why he is starting to attract interest from the likes of Liverpool and City. He has averaged an eye-catching WhoScored rating of 7.09 across 21 appearances as a defensive midfielder for Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga and Champions League, showing that he has been able to consistently deliver at the top level this season.

Despite being a defensive-minded midfielder, Neuhaus also offers a threat in the attacking third of the pitch. The German international has recorded four goals and four assists in the Bundesliga. No Liverpool central midfielder has provided more than two goals or two assists in the Premier League, which suggests that Neuhaus could add a different dimension to Jurgen Klopp’s midfield.

This means that he could be a solid addition to Liverpool’s squad ahead of next season. His quotes above could be an indication that he is open to an exit, given that he refuses to rule out the possibility, which could also be a boost to the Reds in their potential pursuit of him.
