The Reds have been quick to act since the window opened at the end of the season, tying up a deal for Bayer Leverkusen's Emre Can while a move for Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno is almost complete.

Brendan Rodgers is a big fan of 18-year-old Meyer, who bagged seven goals from midfield for the German giants, and sees him as a talent who can provide Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling with real competition.

Meyer, who has been described by the German press as the next Mario Goetze, has one senior cap for his country, and was included in Joachim Loew's provisional 30-man squad for the World Cup in Brazil.
