Liverpool will have scouts at the DFB-Pokal final on Saturday, according to reports. Here are three players they’ll watch.

Sky Sports claim Liverpool will have their scouts present as Bayern Munich take on Bayer Leverkusen in the DFB-Pokal final. There are three players we think they’ll pay particular attention to.

Leon Bailey is reportedly available.

Leon Bailey

We’ll start with a name straight from that Sky report. There haven’t been any recent links between Bailey and Liverpool but if Sky are right, the Reds will have an eye on him. Sky say he’s available for as little as £20m – a bargain for a player with his abilities.

He’d make an ideal backup winger with plenty of potential. Bailey is certainly a player we’d back Jurgen Klopp to work wonders with.

 

Thiago Alcantara

Thiago should play in the final, despite his recent injury issues. That’s according to Bild, anyway, who say he’s back in training. Reports from Spain and Germany say Liverpool have plenty of interest in Thiago and thus you can guarantee they’ll watch him.

Kai Havertz

An interesting one and Liverpool won’t be alone in watching Havertz. He’s in high demand – even from Saturday’s opponents, Bayern. Liverpool have their own links to Havertz, though, with The Times naming them recently.

The Independent claimed back in February that the Reds wanted him, too. They say that his price is too high – perhaps a starring role for Bayer can change Liverpool’s mind.
