Arsenal and Liverpool FC are among a cluster of clubs that have agreed to meet Hoffenheim’s £28m asking price for Kerem Demirbay, according to reports.

Sport Bild is reporting that Demirbay is attracting interest from a number of top European clubs, including Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool FC.

The same article states that Arsenal and Liverpool FC have agreed to match Demirbay’s contract release clause ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old has blossomed into a key player at Hoffenheim since his move to the Bundesliga outfit from Hamburg in 2016.

The Germany international has scored two goals and has made three assists in 15 games in the German top flight in the current campaign.

Demirbay started his career at Borussia Dortmund in 2012 before the attacking midfielder completed a move to Hamburg in 2013.

The playmaker represented Turkey at youth level before Demirbay made the decision to represent the German national team.

Liverpool FC could lose their Germany international Emre Can in the summer, with the midfielder being heavily linked with a move to Serie A giants Juventus.

The Reds have been linked with a summer swoop to sign Arsenal star Jack Wilshere, who is set to become a free agent in the summer like Can.
