The 19-year-old has attracted the attention of the top clubs with his performances for Frankfurt and it will be interesting to see if Liverpool, Tottenham or Newcastle come forward with an offer to sign him in the summer.

Liverpool and Tottenham could use Hugo Larsson

It is no secret that Liverpool need to sign a quality central midfielder, especially with Thiago Alcantara leaving the club in the summer. Larsson is a box to box midfielder who will add defensive cover and creativity to the side. The Reds could groom him into a complete midfielder in the coming seasons.

The opportunity to join one of the biggest clubs in England will be an attractive proposition for Larsson and it remains to be seen whether Liverpool can secure an agreement with Frankfurt.

Meanwhile, Tottenham need to replace Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg who is expected to move on at the end of the season. The Denmark international has fallen down the pecking order at the north London club and he needs to leave in order to play regularly. Tottenham will have to sign a quality replacement for him.

At Newcastle, he could be a replacement for Bruno Guimaraes if the Brazilian decides to move on and join a bigger club.

The German outfit will not want to lose a prized young prospect like him any time soon, and it remains to be seen with clubs like Liverpool and Newcastle can tempt them with a lucrative proposal.
