Reported Liverpool target Julian Brandt says he is happy at Bayer Leverkusen, but has not ruled out a summer move.
The Liverpool Echo say the 20-year-old has been “scouted regularly” by the Reds this season.
And, speaking to Deutsche Welle, he suggested he could be open to leaving the Bundesliga in the near future.
“You can take the step (abroad), but I don’t think you have to,” said Brandt. “Those that back themselves to do it have nothing in their way.
“I don’t think it’s a bad thing to try and find your feet abroad. Julian (Draxler) and Leroy (Sane) are the best examples of that right now. They are both young players and have huge futures ahead of them.
“I’m happy here and what happens next, we will see.”
The midfielder admits he has thought above a big-money move elsewhere but is determined to keep performing well for Leverkusen.
‘I think the allure of being world famous is normal. It would be a lie to say it wasn’t alluring, but where and when you never know,’ he said.
‘Football moves so quickly, and as quickly as things develop positively, they can also go south and see you slip into a place where you’re forgotten.’
