Bayer Leverkusen forward Julian Brandt’s future is set to be decided this week as a number of clubs circle for his signature this summer, according to the Metro

The 23-year-old has attracted the attention of the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund and with a relatively low release clause, a Leverkusen exit looks likely.

Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller has admitted Julian Brandt’s future will be discussed over the next week, after the winger was once again linked with a move away from the BayArena.

Brandt has a €25 million (£22m/$28m) release clause in his contract, and Voller revealed that a number of sides have shown an interest in the wideman.

“We know exactly which clubs have knocked [for Brandt],” Voller told Sky Sport News HD.

“Brandt has some requests, and in the next five, six or seven days there will be a decision.”
