An 18-year-old star of the future has been making a big impression and it has been reported that several clubs are keeping very close tabs on his progress.

Julian Brandt goes down as one for the future and has five years left on his Bayer Leverkusen contract, scoring twice for the Bundesliga side in his 12 league games after graduated from Leverkusen II via the Wolfsburg youth squad in 2013. The midfielder made his senior debut on Feb 15th 2014 against Schalke 04.

It is considered highly unlikely that Brandt could be lured away with his contract situation but is well regarded by Liverpool and reports in the Express suggest they are keen on getting him to Anfield.

Watch Julian Brandt in action vs Hamburg below:

Brandt plays as an attacking midfielder for Leverkusen and has played at all levels for the Germany youth squad that he has been eligible for from U15 to U19.

“Julian Brandt is one of the most talented players in German football,”

Brandt drew the attention of big clubs in Germany and the Premier League after scoring 22 goals for Wolfsburg’s under-19 side from midfield.
