English Premier League giants Liverpool have emerged as favourites for the signing of German Bundesliga Hoffenheim midfielder Kerem Demirbay according to reports.

The report says the Reds are already preparing to launch a bid for the Bundesliga No.10 in the winter transfer window which reopens in the coming weeks.

Kerem Demirbay who has impressed a lot this season will serve as a perfect replacement for Adams Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who both in bad shape and injured respectively.

It has been reported that the Red Devils will be willing to pay much for Kerem Demirbay with suggestions that his £20 million asking price could double as a result of his improvement and the number of interests in him across Europe.

Kerem Demirbay has therefore made just 6 appearances this season and has had 3 assists on goal making him the quality player that would be needed at the Anfield.

With his contract expected to expire in 2022, there are fears that the German outfit might not let him leave as in the winter transfer window owing to his importance in the team and their inability to secure any replacement yet for him.

The Reds are desperate to have their squad improved so as to push for a title this season with the Premier League and the Champions League as a major target.
