Liverpool eyeing a move for German midfield sensation Johannes Geis
Liverpool were expected to be very busy in the transfer market this summer and unsurprisingly, manager Brendan Rodgers has already moved on to secure the services of the likes of James Milner, Danny Ings and Adam Bogdan so far.
Rodgers will now look to further strengthen his side in the coming weeks and bringing in a new midfielder will rank high on the priority list for the Northern Irishman.
The departure of Steven Gerrard has clearly left a massive void in the Liverpool midfield while even long serving Lucas Leiva is widely expected to depart this summer.
Therefore, one can expect Liverpool to sign a new holding midfielder during the transfer window and sources close to the club have told Winner Sports that the Reds are planning a swoop for German youngster Johannes Geis.

Now it can be revealed that Rodgers is looking to ramp up his pursuit for Geis and is set to place a bid in the region of around £7million for the youngster.
