It will no longer be a free run for English Premier League outfit Liverpool in the chase of German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Leverkusen striker Julian Brandt as they are now joined by the Italian Serie A champions Juventus.
The manager Jurgen Klopp side were earlier leading in the race to sign the star forward but they were joined along the line by Juventus who are also keen on Julian Brandt.
Julian Brandt has been impressive in the German Bundesliga and he is one of the best the league can boast of. His last game for Leverkusen had him play an important role in their 6-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.
The star player is known for the wing position but he has been tactically flexible enough to also play as a leading striker which is the right taste for the German boss at the Anfield.
Julian Brandt has got a release clause of £25 million which is also affordable but landing him will not come easy as Goal.com list Juventus and serious competitors for the star player as they hope to rebuild their team.
However, the Reds team must be able to stand right in their bid and present a better plan for the star player to be able to win his signature.
