Liverpool are looking to sign a promising youngster in January to aid their Premier League title challenge.
Currently top of the table, Liverpool are in a strong position ahead of the January transfer window. Their last-minute winner against Crystal Palace at the weekend, as well as other games going their way, means the Reds are now a point ahead of Arsenal.
Jurgen Klopp certainly isn't content with letting his squad rest on their laurels, though, and has identified a fellow countryman to improve the team - important considering their fight for the Europa League title, too.
The 21-year-old has been performing strongly in the Bundesliga this term, scoring six goals and assisting a further four as Hoffenheim push for the European places.
Primarily a centre-forward, Beier is also capable of playing in other advanced forward positions, which could suit Liverpool perfectly due to their abundance of attacking options.
Despite only signing a new deal that will keep him with the German side until June 2027 in October, Beier's release clause could force interested clubs into acting quickly to secure his signature.
The aforementioned Sky Sports report suggests that the German will definitely leave in the summer, but could move in January depending on potential offers.
Making Germany's Euro 2024 squad seems a priority for Beier at the moment, though, meaning that he'd need to be guaranteed plenty of game time at Liverpool if he is to make the move. Other Premier League sides are also reportedly interested, which could pose better for his international prospects.
