Premier League duo tracking young midfielder Christoph Kramer as his contract runs down.
Premier League sides Manchester United and Liverpool are both tracking the progress of German World Cup midfielder Christoph Kramer, report the Express, with Borussia Monchengladbach also interested in signing the 23 year-old on a free transfer when his contract expires in 12 months’ time.
Kramer, who is currently on loan with Monchengladbach from Bayer Leverkusen, for whom he has never made a senior Bundesliga appearance, instead spending time with Vfl Bochum and Monchengladbach, started the World Cup final for Germany but was taken off with a head injury during the opening stages of the clash against Argentina.
This lack of opportunity that has been given to Kramer at the BayArena could mean that Leverkusen struggle to tie him down to a new deal at the club and, with Kramer set to be available on a free transfer next summer, Manchester United and Liverpool are both interested in securing the services of a hard-working and indutrious central midfield player.
The report suggests that they could face real opposition from Kramer’s current club, Borussia Monchengladbach, for his services, however, with the Bundesliga outfit set to make a cash offer to their domestic rivals in January in an attempt to secure the signing of Kramer before overseas clubs are able to have a sniff.
