Liverpool, Manchester City, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are all tracking Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus, according to Kicker.
The German magazine reports that Gladbach would likely hold out for the 23-year-old’s release clause, which is currently set at €40m (£35m). Fans on Twitter are excited to see the Reds linked with the player:
He's been tearing up the Bundesliga hasn't he?

Would be nice if there was truth in this. Would he be a replacement for Gini or Keita?

Neuhaus has been in great form this season, having scored six goals and contributed six assists in 28 appearances, and his performances have been rewarded with a call up to Germany’s national team.
The midfielder scored on his debut in a friendly against Turkey back in October and he has subsequently picked up two more caps for his country.
It remains to be seen whether Liverpool will step up their interest in Neuhaus in the summer but his playmaking abilities could provide manager Jurgen Klopp with another option in midfield.
