Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp keen on bolstering his squad, and he is open to adding promising young talents, and Yildiz has captured the attention of the German tactician.
The Reds are in pursuit of key first-team players, particularly a defender and another midfielder, as part of their ongoing rebuild. The potential departure of Mohamed Salah might also prompt them to seek a high-profile attacker. Despite their focus on established stars, the Premier League giants remain active in the market for emerging talents.
Sporting director Jorg Schmadtke has reportedly been monitoring Yildiz since his Bayern Munich days. While the Gunners are also interested, Liverpool seem to be leading the race to secure the 18-year-old youngster’s services.
The Reds are also exploring other young talents, including midfielder Arthur Vermeeren and Blackburn star Adam Wharton.
However, the financial aspects of these potential transfers, especially for Wharton, could impact Liverpool’s activity in the January window.
Yildiz, 18, with a current market value of 1 million, might present a more feasible option for the Merseyside club, though the Bianconeri will likely seek a decent fee if the young prodigy continues to impress.
