Liverpool 'win race to sign Leon Goretzka'

Liverpool have an agreement to sign Schalke star Leon Goretzka in January

Goretzka's current deal is set to expire at the end of the season and he is expected to take on a new challenge by joining a new club.

That won't happen, though, if Juventus get their way.

Consistently linked with both players in recent months, Marotta confirmed the Bianconeri are keen to bring them both to Serie A as they look to add further depth to an already star-studded squad.

Sport claim that the aforementioned clubs are the two teams most likely to sign him in the summer. "The will of the players will be decisive". Signed from Bochum four years ago, he has become a mainstay for Schalke, who still hope they can persuade the player to stay. "It's not easy to find them".

Landing the signature of Schalke's 22-year-old midfielder Goretzka will also be less than straight forward, as the German is now being courted by European giants Barcelona and Bayern Munich, with both North London clubs, in Arsenal and Tottenham also taking an interest.

The likes of Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have all been credited with an interest in Goretzka, but Spanish media outlet Don Balon reports that Liverpool have beaten their Premier League rivals to his signature.

For Can, nearly all the talk over the past year has been about a potential move to Juventus, though recently the German press have suggested that Borussia Dortmund are interested in bringing him back to the Bundesliga.
