Liverpool eye Holtby move

Liverpool transfer target Lewis Holtby is reportedly refusing to sign a new contract with current club Schalke, opening up the possibility of a switch to Anfield, reports The Daily Mirror.


Lewis Holtby


Holtby, 22, has been playing for the German club since 2009, and this season, has made 23 appearances for them, scoring 3 goals and providing 8 assists. He leads his side in the assists department, a statistic that has seen him called up to the German international squad. It is expected that an announcement on Holtby's future will be made today after he has stalled on signing a new contract with the German side, currently sitting 7th, 17 points behind league leaders Bayern Munich.


Liverpool currently find themselves sitting 10th in the Premier League, 8 points outside the Champions League spots, and a lack of goals has been a key issue for the Merseyside team. Only Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard and defender Martin Skrtel have scored more than once this season, and it is believed Holtby could provide more path's to goals with his passing and assists a key element to his game. Holtby is reporedly asking for 5 million a year to remain at Schalke, although his agent has said that that sum was "plucked out of the air".


The German midfielder has also strengthened claims he will be making a move to England by speaking about the English game, in particular the lack of a winter break. "I know how important football is to English fans over the Christmas break, but it must take its toll on the player," Holtby commented recently. "For the rest of us, it doesn't make too much sense because when players are tired and playing so regularly, you do pick up little niggles and injuries".
