The report states that the club's scouts have watched the 18-year-old in recent times. However, the story further adds that scouts from both Manchester United and Newcastle United have also done the same.
The Germany international recently suffered a serious knee injury and is expected to return to first-team action in late September.
With that being the case, the aforementioned clubs are reportedly unlikely to make a move for Wirtz this summer.
Anfield Watch Verdict
Wirtz is a promising young talent. The midfielder has found the back of the net 10 times and registered 14 assists in 31 appearances for Bayer Leverkusen's first-team this season.
Wirtz has also been averaging a WhoScored player rating of 7.41 across the 2021-22 Bundesliga campaign.
Germany coach Hansi Flick has certainly had plenty of good things to say about the youngster in the past.
"Florian is just a huge asset for this team (Germany) through his carefreeness," the 57-year-old said last year, as quoted by the Bundesliga's official website.
"He's simply an outstanding technician, loves to play, very creative, has a good shot, runs hard and is quick. He's got a good total package."
As the aforementioned figures and comments highlight, Wirtz is a player that could take the world by storm in the coming years. Therefore, we would love to see Liverpool sign the 18-year-old at some stage.
But, the potential €70 million price tag might scare the Reds off. On another note, we wish Wirtz all the best with his recovery. Injuries are cruel.
