Liverpool spearhead race for next ‘Arjen Robben’ taking Germany by storm

    Date published: Saturday 4th July 2020 1:10

    Liverpool and Chelsea top the list of clubs keen on signing exciting Hoffenheim winger Nick Breitenbucher, according to a report.

    The 17-year-old plays in the German side’s Under-17s set-up, with the season ended prematurely due to the pandemic.

    However, the attacker caught the eye in 16 games this term, scoring 13 goals and assisting three others.

    Indeed, he has since earned a promotion to Hoffenheim’s Under-19s set-up ahead of next season, along with a new two-year contract.

    According to Spox, Breitenbucher’s teammates refer to him as the ‘next’ Arjen Robben due to his potential.

    One source close to the player said: “He prefers the right front position so that he can pull in the middle and lock with the left.

    “Nick has a good goal, is very agile and very fast.”

    The source adds that Breitenbucher’s performances have peaked the interest of Liverpool and Chelsea insiders.

    The Premier League duo are reportedly keeping tabs on the player’s progress as he prepares to make the step up to the Under-19s next term.

    However, Schalke have already registered firm interest and are, at this point, the firm favourites to sign him.


    Breitenbucher was absent for his side’s first three games this term but hit the ground running immediately with nine goals in eight games.

    Liverpool and Chelsea have a penchant for developing exciting young talent.

    Indeed, many of the Reds‘ recent transfers have focused on bolstering their youth ranks. Harvey Elliott and Sepp van den Berg, both brought in last summer, have made first-team appearances this term.

    Elliott, in fact, is vying to become the youngest Premier League winner in history now that his side have wrapped up the title.


    Elsewhere, Bayern Munich have confirmed that reported Liverpool target Thiago Alcantara will go this summer.

    The 29-year-old has rejected a new deal with the German champions, after almost agreeing extended terms.

    Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge now says the Spaniard is looking for an adventure elsewhere.
