Liverpool and Manchester United are among four Premier League clubs all tracking an FC Augsburg star, a report claims.

According to the Daily Mail, the aforementioned duo are chasing defender Philipp Max, along with Tottenham and Everton.

Philipp has played a major part in Augsburg’s impressive start to the season, contributing seven assists in the league as the Bavarian side sit level on points with Borussia Dortmund.

The report claims that while Max is contracted with Augsburg until 2022, he would find it difficult to reject an advance from a Premier League side.

Jose Mourinho is reportedly seeking a new full-back having not been convinced by Luke Shaw, with Tottenham’s Danny Rose linked, which has consequently forced Mauricio Pochettino to scout a replacement.
