Five Premier League options for Miroslav Klose

Klose

Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are among the teams which feature.

Miroslav Klose is one of the best centre forwards that Germany has ever produced and after stating that he wants to play until 2016, he seems to have his eyes set firmly on a move to England.

German newspaper Bild has suggested the Premier League is his preferred destination as his deal with Serie A side Lazio winds down, leaving the striker available on a free transfer next year.

Here are five Premier League clubs in with a chance of signing him.

Arsenal

The Gunners need a centre forward as back up to Olivier Giroud. They need a player they know can come in with a proven track record of scoring goals, especially if they are in a great position in the Premier League when the January transfer window opens.

Klose is experienced in various different styles of football so the pace and nature of the English game wouldn’t be a problem, equipped with the fact Arsenal already have a core of good German players.

Chelsea

The Blues badly need a centre forward who can rack up goals, with no chance of Romelu Lukaku being recalled from his season long loan at Everton.

Jose Mourinho knows exactly what he’s getting in Klose and that’s someone who can lead the frontline, showcasing great leadership and an ability to get the ball into the back of the net by any means necessary.

Andre Schurrle also provides that German link, which would help Klose to settle in quickly.

Everton

Everton currently sit in seventh place, with a realistic chance of securing European football this season.

Klose would be ideal for the brand of football that Roberto Martinez likes his teams to play and his work ethic and record suggest that he’d be productive leading the attack at Goodison Park.

Klose would provide a good value, proven strike option, which would help the side compensate when Romelu Lukaku goes back to Chelsea at the end of the season. He’s also someone who could help Lukaku to become a more prolific centre forward.

Liverpool

Klose could be the ideal centre forward signing for Liverpool this winter for several reasons.

It’s all about Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez at the moment but having the option of Klose available means Liverpool would have a prolific and experienced goalscorer ready to slot straight into the team.

Klose would also be a great signing in terms of how he would interact with the younger players at Anfield, as Liverpool have one of the best groups of young talent in the country.

Tottenham Hotspur

Despite the summer signing of Roberto Soldado, Spurs remain light up front and Klose could be a great signing over the second half of the season heading into the next campaign.

He wouldn’t be able to play Europa League football but he would be valuable in Tottenham’s attempts to make a top four spot by the end of the season, which would then make it easier for the club to retain him and offer others the chance of Champions League football.
