Liverpool to trigger Julian Brandt’s release clause


Merseyside outfit Liverpool are reported to be ready to trigger the release clause of German Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen striker Julian Brandt ahead of the coming summer transfer window.

The Reds team are hoping to add more power to their attack force ahead of the coming season as they are ready to dominate this season and manager Jurgen Klopp is reported to be a big fan of the star player.

Julian Brandt is reported to have a buy-out clause of £21.5 million which is suggested to be a good deal for the club as the German boss has earlier hinted that the club will not be doing big money deals.

However, the Merseyside outfit are not alone in the bid for Julian Brandt as Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid and Italian Serie A outfit Juventus are also keen on his signature.

Julian Brandt has impressed so far in the German Bundesliga which is the reason why he has caught the attention of a number of clubs abroad.

The 22-year-old attacker has scored about seven goals so far this season and provided 14 assists in 38 appearances.

It is therefore unclear if the German Bundesliga outfit will release the player but there are suggestions that Julian Brandt will jump to the Anfield.
