Not just Liverpool but the entire top eight of the Premier League are keen on Maximilian Beier, according to German media.

The Hoffenheim attacker has been the Bundesliga’s breakout star this season, now resulting in a call-up to the German national team by Julian Nagelsmann. Beier has so far recorded 12 goals and five assists in 25 Bundesliga outings this term.

Speculation around the 21-year-old’s future has been rampant ever since he first burst onto the scene in the early parts of what is his first season of regular top-flight football. Despite his relative inexperience at the highest level, it seems that clubs have few concerns about the wonderkid.

Beier won’t come cheap as he will have a release clause of around €30 million to €32.5m in the summer, but the expectation is that he will leave Hoffenheim, according to Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg. The youngster won’t have a shortage of suitors.

Beier wanted by the Premier League elite

Liverpool have been hot on Beier’s trail for months. They are the Premier League side who have most prominently been linked with him, though Brentford also eyed him in January.

Intriguingly, Plettenberg asserts that it’s not just the Bees and the Reds who are keen on Beier but the entire top eight of the Premier League. Arsenal, Liverpool, Man City, Aston Villa, Tottenham, Man Utd, West Ham and Brighton are all keeping tabs on the versatile attacker, who can play out wide and centrally.

Additionally, several Bundesliga giants have shortlisted Beier, though Borussia Dortmund are not among them. Plettenberg asserts that the 21-year-old could announce his new club before EURO 2024.

Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso is said to be a big admirer of Beier, which could be good news for Liverpool’s pursuit of the Hoffenheim starlet should they manage to land the Basque coach. Aston Villa’s interest in Beier is also intriguing. FootballTransfers previously explained that Villa Park would be an ideal destination for the youngster.
