Liverpool are reportedly monitoring Borussia Dortmund’s midfield wonderkid Giovanni Reyna, ahead of a future transfer.

The 17-year-old is a promising young player who has already featured in the first team 18 times since his debut.

He’s tipped as a future star alongside fellow wonderkids Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who has strong ties with Dortmund after his spell managing there, is a big fan of Reyna according to the Mirror.

The reigning Premier League champions are thought to have scouted Reyna on multiple occasions to get a feel for his development.

Reyna is versatile and can play either as an attacking midfielder or as a left winger.

The American already has links with England. He was born there whilst his father, former Man City and Rangers forward Claudio Reyna, was playing for Sunderland.

A transfer could materialise in the future if Liverpool are impressed with the player’s development. He’s currently at one of the best clubs in the world for developing young players and is getting decent game time.

A transfer during this window is unlikely as Dortmund plan to use Reyna in the upcoming Bundesliga season. They will chase down champions Bayern Munich after finishing second place last campaign.

Reyna is part of an exciting wave of players to play for the United States national team.

Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic is currently spearheading the wave, having already become the most expensive American player ever. He moved to London after breaking into the first team with Dortmund, too.

Liverpool have so far been fairly quiet during this transfer window. Their only addition is Greek left back Kostas Tsimikas, who joined for a reported £11.75 million fee from Olympiacos.

Liverpool are also thought to be interested in Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria.
