Liverpool are reportedly preparing to make a double swoop for German starlets Julian Draxler and Lewis Holtby this summer.
According to Goal.com, new Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to rejuvenate his squad by moving for the Schalke pair.
Both are Germany internationals, but only just missed out on Joachim Loew’s Euro 2012 squad.
Holtby, 21, has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past, after saying he would be keen on a move to Arsenal or his English father’s club Everton.
Draxler meanwhile, is thought of very highly in the Bundesliga and would cost a great deal more – he has previously turned down moves to both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in order to stay with his boyhood club.
The 18-year-old is seen as one of the most promising young footballers in Germany, he holds the record as Schalke’s youngest ever Bundesliga player and claimed it was his dream to play for either Barcelona or Real Madrid.
