Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has been looking at a number of wingers and playmakers over the last 12 months, including the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Willian and Mohamed Salah, but missed out on all three as they chose to sign for Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea respectively instead.
That has prompted Rodgers to eye up other targets, and one of those is reportedly Stuttgart's Romanian Alexandru Maxim, who only arrived in the Bundesliga in January 2013 after a move from Pandurii Targu Jiu in his native Romania. His impressive displays have caught the eye, and he was on the scoresheet again for Stuttgart against Freiburg.
The 23-year-old finished off a sweeping move, which was reminiscent of Liverpool's fast flowing attacking football, and his movement to get into a goal scoring position to to finish the move off could be very appealing to Rodgers, who will be looking for goalscoring contributions to support strikers Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.
His goal yesterday was his seventh of the season, whilst he has also contributed nine assists in a hugely impressive campaign for Stuttgart.
