The likes of Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, and Arsenal have all been credited with an interest in Goretzka, but Spanish media outlet Don Balon reports that Liverpool have beaten their Premier League rivals to his signature.

The Germany international will reportedly join the Reds in January, with the player having turned down the chance to move to Barcelona due to being unimpressed with their contract offer.

Liverpool eventually signs Goretzka could open the door for Brazilian star Philippe Coutinho to leave Anfield for Barcelona or Paris Saint-Germain, though.

Goretzka has scored four goals in nine Bundesliga appearances for Schalke so far this season.
