Liverpool: Klopp desperately wants Bundesliga star

The Liverpool boss is believed to be looking at reinforcements for January and it seems he had identified a fellow German to recruit.

Home is where the heart is. The common adage goes. Often that statement rings true in the world of football too and especially at Liverpool. Managers tend to stick and recruit from where they know best and players they are familiar with.

Jurgen Klopp is of course the same. Since he has taken over at Liverpool he has frequently purchased players from the Bundesliga.

Currently there is a void in the Liverpool line-up. With the departure of Philippe Coutinho and Emre Can there is a lack of attacking midfield threat in the current Reds squad. It is an area Jurgen Klopp will want to rectify as soon as possible.

The German boss will look for a player who has the ability and the drive to pitch in with goals from midfield on a regular basis and to add an extra bit of spice to an already breathtaking Liverpool squad.

It seems according to Bild via the Daily Mirror the Reds have identified that man as Bayer Leverkusen and German international Kai Havertz as the German news outlet claims Liverpool are among seven clubs vying for Havertz’s signature.

The Bayer Leverkusen midfielder could be the perfect addition to the Liverpool squad. He could not only fulfil the void left over by Coutinho and Can but with his knack for scoring goals and long darting runs forward he almost resembles a young Steven Gerrard and perhaps the German could even be a long-term replacement for the former scouse legend and club captain.

Kai Havertz is an exceptional footballer and the one player Germany pin their future hopes on. His energy, bursting pace, creative flair and ability to score both from long distance and to pop up in the box with crucial finishes makes him a generational talent.

With Klopp’s guidance he could further hone his skills at Liverpool and Havertz could easily slot into the current midfield three at the Reds. Havertz could take the club to the next level and he could become their new midfield maestro for years to come.
