In such a scenario, the Merseysiders have been linked with a number of top playmakers and one of them is German international, Florian Wirtz.

Earlier this month, reports indicated that the Anfield side are favorites to hire the services of the Bayer Leverkusen star.

More recently, as per Spanish outlet, Nacional, Liverpool are preparing an offer worth £78million (90 million euros) to sign Wirtz from the Bundesliga side.

The Catalan news source have mentioned that La Liga champions, Barcelon,a are also interested in the 20-year-old versatile star but Laporta cannot afford to pay £78million.

The 14-capped talent, who can effectively play in central and wide offensive positions, has been in top form this season under Reds legend, Xabi Alonso.

So far, in all competitions, he has started 15 games and directly contributed in 16 goals (6 goals and 10 assists) for Leverkusen, who are on top of the Bundesliga table and the Europa League group.
