The chase by Merseyside outfit of German international Julian Brandt has hit the dead rock as he is reported to be close to a move to the other side of the Bundesliga.
It is reported that Julian Brandt and his father had already agreed on a deal to join Borussia Dortmund as soon as the season ends.
Liverpool have been in the chase of Julian Brandt over a long time and it was expected that a move happens in the future until the report emerged that an agreement has been reached with Borussia Dortmund.
Julian Brandt, who currently wears the colour of Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen is known to be a versatile player who can play any role in the attack as well as in the middle.
This is the quality seen by Borussia Dortmund that made them push for his signature.
The Merseyside outfit would have loved to land Julian Brandt because of his versatile gift as he could always stand in the gap in cases of injury in any position.
However, Liverpool will now have to turn their attention to other suitors as they are reported to be considering a move for attackers in the coming summer window.
