The report states that the Reds have been in contact with the 18-year-old's parents as they try to establish a relationship and beat the competition to his signature.
Wirtz is not available on a free transfer anytime soon. The Germany international's contract expires in the summer of 2026.
Wirtz possesses a current market value of €65 million.
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
We would love to see Wirtz at Anfield, as he is a promising young player. The attacking midfielder has scored 15 goals and registered 14 assists in 59 appearances for Bayer Leverkusen.
Wirtz is also averaging a WhoScored player rating of 7.58 in the early stages of the 2021-22 Bundesliga campaign.
The aforementioned figures highlight that the 18-year-old is performing at a high level. If Liverpool do sign Wirtz, he could potentially represent the club for at least a decade.
Hopefully the Reds do make a move for the Germany international in the near future.
