Julian Brandt

The English Premier League outfit Liverpool fans are not happy about the latest development that the club’s major target Julian Brandt has left the German Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen to join Borussia Dortmund.

The Reds have been on the chase of Julian Brandt since the last January winter transfer window but that is now over as he has been confirmed to be a Borussia Dortmund player for the sum of £22 million, a fee that can be afforded by the manager Jurgen Klopp team.

It would be recalled that the Merseyside outfit came close to securing the signature of Julian Brandt in 2017 but the deal failed to work through until they captured the Egyptian international Mohamed Salah from the Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma.

However, the fans have approached social media to express their disappointment in the club for allowing most of their top targets sign for other teams.

One of the fans noted that same Borussia Dortmund captured Nico Schultz, Thorgan Hazard and now Julian Brandt.

Meanwhile, this might not be a surprise to some of the fans after learning manager Jurgen Klopp statement that he would not want to distract his team by bringing in big names in the summer transfer window.
