Liverpool are showing growing interest in the services of Mainz midfielder Anton Stach this summer.

Stach has emerged from the depths as one of the German league’s best players this season, appearing in 24 games in all competitions, scoring one goal and providing three assists.

Standing at 6ft 4, Klopp may be eyeing up a move in the form of a long-term replacement for current midfielder Fabinho who has come under harsh criticism for this season’s performances.

Bundesliga club Mainz, according to reports, are open to bids for a mere £10m, with the midfield also open to a new challenge overseas.

With the hopes of gaining the attention of Hansi Flick and representing his country at Euro 2024, a high-profile move to a Premier League side may just be what the doctor ordered for Stach.

His performances have been integral for his side’s pursuit of European competition as they sit seventh in their domestic league.

Sky Deutschland has, however, reported his time in Germany may be coming to an abrupt end soon with the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham and West Ham all keeping tabs.

Though Stach may not be the first name on every Liverpool fan’s lips, his cheaper price tag may seem more attractive as Jude Bellingham’s price tag continues to ascend.

Mainz’s talent development is also a positive for those interested in their number 6, with the likes of Moussa Niakhate, Jeremiah St Juste and Jean-Philippe Mateta all departing the German side in recent windows.
