Liverpool sit top of the Premier League with 39 points and are on course to challenge for the Premier League title.
One of the areas in Jurgen Klopp’s squad that has been a concern is the centre-forward role, with Darwin Nunez constantly misfiring and missing point-blank chances.
The Reds are looking for a more lethal striker and German journalist Florian Plettenberg has revealed that Liverpool are interested in signing Maximilian Beier this summer.
It will require a fee in the region of £25m to snap him up from Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim this summer.
Beier has been a standout performer this season, bagging six goals and four assists in 15 appearances for Pellegrino Matarazzo’s team.
The 21-year-old came to the limelight after impressive performances on loan at Hannover in the second tier of the Bundesliga last season.
Matarazzo put his faith in the German striker this season, and the youngster has repaid the faith by scoring a chunk of goals in the Bundesliga.
Beier predominantly operates as a centre-forward but also showcases versatility as a winger.
He represents Germany U21s and is eyeing a potential call-up to the senior squad under Julian Nagelsmann.
Beier has become a pivotal player for Hoffenheim this season, forming a productive partnership with Wout Weghorst.
He has caught the eye with a series of impressive performances for Hoffenheim, particularly during a scoring spree spanning four consecutive league matches from late August to September.
The allure for Liverpool lies in Beier’s young age, impressive form, versatility, and athleticism, aligning well with Jurgen Klopp’s tactical system.
While the physical demands of English football are a point of discussion, Beier’s noteworthy technical ability adds to his appeal.
Liverpool’s sporting director, Jorg Schmadtke, has already leveraged his Bundesliga connections, signing Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch in the summer.
Beier could be another exciting signing for the Reds.
