Liverpool and Chelsea are reportedly both eyeing up the possible transfer of Hoffenheim winger Nick Breitenbucher.
According to Ed Aarons of the Guardian, both Premier League clubs are said to be ‘interested’ in the Germany Under-17 international, who looks a hugely promising young centre-forward.
The Merseyside giants have done well to find top young talent in the transfer market of late, and it looks like Chelsea could be aiming for a similar approach under Frank Lampard.
Chelsea have promoted players from their academy and targeted elite youngsters in the transfer market as well, such as Christian Pulisic.
Nick looks another big prospect who could have a bright future in the game, and it would be exciting to see the teenager in English football.
It stays to be seen which club will win the race for his signature, but one imagines the chance to link up with fellow countryman Jurgen Klopp at Premier League champions Liverpool might be too good an offer to turn down.
The Reds have just won their first PL title for 30 years following Manchester City’s 2-1 defeat at Chelsea last week, and Klopp will now need to ensure his side don’t rest on their laurels and fail to continue bolstering and improving.
