Liverpool travel to London to face Crystal Palace on Saturday knowing that a point would be enough to move them into seventh place in the Premier League table. 

The Reds have endured a difficult season so far, losing seven league matches already, and currently sit in eighth place.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were also on the end of a heavy defeat on Tuesday, losing 5-2 to reigning champions Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie.

Their visit to Selhurst Park represents an opportunity to get back to winning ways, but in the meantime The Reds are reportedly considering a move for a Bundesliga star.

According to 90min, Liverpool are one of a number of Premier League clubs scouting Mainz midfielder Anton Stach.

It is claimed that scouts from West Ham United, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur have also watched the midfielder in action.

Stach, 24, has impressed in the German top flight this season, making 22 appearances across all competitions for Mainz.

The midfielder’s versatility is likely to appeal to potential suitors, with the German able to play in a number of roles in the centre of the pitch.

Stach is attracting interest from Premier League clubs

Stach, a two-time Germany international, joined Mainz from Greuther Furth back in 2021, and has since made more than 50 appearances for his current side.

Liverpool are expected to be in the market for at least one midfielder this summer, with several of their current crop set to leave the club.

Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner are all set to be out of contract at the end of the current campaign, while on-loan Arthur Melo is set to return to parent club Juventus.

Spurs’ need for a midfielder stems from the fact that Rodrigo Bentancur suffered an ACL injury earlier this month and is expected to be out for several months.

West Ham’s reason for scouting the midfielder could be due to the fact that Declan Rice looks set to leave the club this summer.

Stach is contracted to Mainz until the summer of 2024, which means he would be able to sign a pre-contract agreement with any club outside of Germany from next January onwards.
