Liverpool have reportedly been in contact with the parents of Bayer Leverkusen midfielder

Liverpool are interested in Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder Florian Wirtz, according to BILD, as cited by LFC Transfer Room's Twitter account.

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.
