His last game for Liverpool was the 2018 Champions League final loss to Real Madrid.
He has also been linked with both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in the German top flight.

Manchester United are looking for reinforcements to their squad after injuries to a lot of key players.
Arsenal target could be set for a move after giving a hint
English Premier League outfit Arsenal have been linked with the signature of Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard and are expected to make a move for him in the summer transfer window.
The situation now gets clear for the North London outfit to make the move as Odsonne Edouard admits he wants to play at a higher level than the Scottish league.
Through his goals, Odsonne Edouard made Celtic the Scottish champions for the ninth successive times and finished top scorer with 22 goals in 27 appearances.
In an interview with Telefoot, he said he has been with the Scottish giants for three tears and he is looking forward to a higher challenge at the right time.

The 22-year-old noted that he is focused on finishing the season with Celtic but he will have to make the right decision when the time is ripe but he failed to mention the country he would love to go.
The North London outfit are interested in the signature of Odsonne Edouard and have tipped him to replace Alexandre Lacazette at the club with the French man not sure of staying at the Emirates Stadium beyond this season.
Arsenal have continued to struggle with goal-scoring with Gabon forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang not in the best of form and the former Lyon striker is not able to help to fill the gap.
Odsonne Edouard could be the deal for the Spanish boss as he is younger and have proven to have all it takes for the bigger level he hopes for.
However, Alexandre Lacazette will not be lacking in options of where to go if he is to leave Arsenal in the summer window as he is attracting interest from Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid and the Italian Serie A giants Juventus. He will also be welcomed at his former club, Lyon.
EPL: Will Eden Hazard return to Chelsea?
The greatest news Chelsea fans will want to hear is the return of Belgium international Eden Hazard to the Stamford Bridge from Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid.
Eden Hazard is one of the best players the West London outfit have ever had in recent times and despite leaving eth club on a big-money deal for some years, the fans are yet to forget the good memories he gave to them with his superb performance when he was still at the Stamford Bridge.
The West London outfit had a busy summer transfer window with about £200 million spent on the recruitment of players including Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Edouard Mendy, and Thiago Siva.
While some of the new names have helped to transform the team in their own little way, none of the new faces have been able to help the Chelsea fans forget Eden Hazard.

The Belgium international made his first appearance for Real Madrid this season as a substitute against German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League, finishing it in a 2-2 draw.
However, Chelsea’s manager, ahead of his side’s Champions League clash against Krasnodar confessed that he is still trying to find the right balance between defence and attack, stressing that he wants to get both sides of the game right.
Hearing of Frank Lampard’s words, the Blues fans immediately stormed Twitter to call for the return of Eden Hazard, insisting that he is the best man to help the team with the balance that is needed.
Some Chelsea fans hold the opinion that Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has not been able to get the best of Eden Hazard and thinks he should return as they described him as “King”.
While Frank Lampard has not made any claim close to recalling Eden Hazard from Madrid, it will be the dream of every Chelsea fan to have him back at Stamford Bridge.
The only way out to Aubameyang’s poor goal form revealed
Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has not been in goal scoring form, a development that has affected the North London outfit as they lost their last two Premier League games against Man City and Leicester City.
This has raised concerns amongst fans and analysts as he the Gabon International has been marked to lift the Gunners team this season with his goals, having started on a good note by winning the Community Shield for the club with his goals.
However, the solution for Arsenal has been revealed Mail online Columnist, Jordan Seaward as he wrote that other players must step up now to help the club so as to stop the overreliance on the former Borussia Dortmund forward for goals.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is Arsenal’s highest goalscorer since he joined the club in January 2018 and he has been consistent which warmed him a new and improved deal at the Emirates Stadium.

Jordan Seaward stated that the North London outfit have other attackers in the team like Alexandre Lacazette, Nicolas Pepe, and Willian stressing that they have to rise the occasion to deliver goals for the club if they must save the season.
“Arsenal cannot continue to be over-reliant on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
“When he is on song, they need not worry, but when he is in a rough path – as he is right now – there needs to be someone else they can turn to” he wrote.
He noted that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang must walk through a difficult time and must be helped by his teammate to overcome in a good time.
Meanwhile, critics have lamented the fact that the Gabon International went quiet with goalscoring as soon as he was handed the new deal at the start of the season. He is now one of the highest paid players at the club.
Manager Mikel Arteta has backed the former Borussia Dortmund to return to his best as quickly as possible because of the need to start winning again.
Concerns over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s form have been motivated by Arsenal’s poor form from the last two Premier League games.
