The Premier League giants are locked in a battle with Real Madrid to secure a deal for the England international at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.
The 19-year-old played a key role in England’s run to the 2022 World Cup quarter finals and his transfer value has now risen to €150m at the Bundesliga side.
Reports from Sky Sports Germany correspondent Florian Plettenberg claim Liverpool are prepared to up the stakes in the coming months.

Plettenberg stated no official offer has been made, or talks with Jurgen Klopp scheduled, but the Reds are confident the chance to become the ‘new Steven Gerrard’ at Anfield, will be a convincing factor.
