Opinion: Liverpool may sweat over Florian Neuhaus displays at Euro 2020

Liverpool may not love Florian Neuhaus having a great Euro 2020. The Reds supposedly want the German midfielder.

Sport1 journalist Florian Plettenberg says Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool want Florian Neuhaus. The Reds are high on the Borussia Monchengladbach player and there have ‘already been talks’.

There’s no offer yet, however, and this one could heat up once the Euros are done. Plettenburg also mentions that there’s no release clause.

That’s backed up by fellow Sport1 journalist Patrick Berger – there was a clause but it’s expired. And with that in mind, Liverpool may start sweating over Neuhaus at Euro 2020.

That £34m release clause would have been helpful. It fixed Neuhaus’s price, keeping it fairly low no matter what happens this summer.

But now any fee could skyrocket if Neuhaus has a good tournament. He’s in the spotlight with Germany and the chance is there for him to draw eyes.

And with those eyes will come offers. Neuhaus is already a highly-rated midfielder who looks as though he’s about to explode into a top player.

In fact, the only real question about him is whether he can deliver at the highest level. He rarely gets a chance to do that with Gladbach as they don’t challenge for honours.

But with Germany, Neuhaus has an opportunity to prove he can hang at the top. Doing that will only get more teams interested – and raise any potential price.

A release clause would have fixed that. Instead, there’s a real chance here that Liverpool end up priced out of a deal – Neuhaus could show himself to be a £60m player with a star showing or two.

The Reds may sweat over his performances, then. If Neuhaus truly is the player they want this summer, Liverpool won’t want him catching too many eyes.
