Liverpool have favourites reportedly to complete the signing of Schalke 04 playmaker Leon Goretzka during the January transfer window.

The German international midfielder s enjoying a growing reputation in his county and has been strongly linked with a switch to the Premier League recently.

The likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have all been credited with an interest for the 22-year-old midfielder. However, Spanish media outlet Don Balon reports that the Merseyside Reds are now favourites to complete the signing of German attacker.

The Schalke midfielder will reportedly join the Jurgen Klopp’s side in January, with the player having rejected the chance to move to La Liga giants Barcelona due to being unimpressed by the contract offer from the Catalan club.

Any deal to sign German playmaker could open the door for Philippe Coutinho to finally make a switch to Barcelona after last summers transfer saga.

Goretzka has found the net for four times in nine Bundesliga games for Schalke so far this campaign.
