Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to express their reaction to reports linking the club with a move for Florian Neuhaus this summer.
According to reports from The Mirror, The Reds have made contact with German outfit to sign their highly-rated midfielder.
Liverpool apparently are looking to sign a midfielder this summer, following the departure of Gini Wijnaldum.
The 24-year-old midfielder has a release clause of €40 million (£34.3m), and the Reds are showing keen interest in him.
The German international is currently with the national camp preparing for the Euros, and any potential transfer deal will take place once the competition gets over.
Last season, he made 33 appearances in the Bundesliga, where he scored six goals and produced five assists.
Replacing Wijanldum will be extremely difficult, but Neuhaus has all the qualities to be a success at Anfield.
Here are some of the selected tweets:

Him or DePaul is fine for me we desperately need some creativity in our team to break down low blocks

Would be the best midfielder option we have after Tielemans

He is so good. I think he is even better than Tielemans and cost less. Great signing if we could get him! Young baller

Firstly, Klopp has forgotten more about football than you'll ever know. Second, 25 is still young. Third, Klopp and Edwards know what they're doing.

While Liverpool do have an in-house replacement in the form of Curtis Jones, it seems Jurgen Klopp still wants more depth in the region.
Liverpool have a wealth of midfield options in the form of Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita, Thiago Alcantara, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Jones, but Neuhaus would still be a valuable addition to the squad.
The German midfielder has a tendency to nick a goal from midfield and he is very good at ball retention. He is also good at closing the opposition down but he appears a lot more progressive when in possession of the ball.
