Should Liverpool and Arsenal revisit their interest in Kevin Volland?

The German international has been in good form over recent weeks and could be a clever addition at Anfield or the Emirates Stadium.

Talented German forward Kevin Volland got on the scoresheet for the second week in a row yesterday, scoring Hoffenheim’s opener in a 2-0 victory over Mainz in the Bundesliga.

Both Liverpool and Arsenal have been linked with a move for the versatile forward in the past, by the Mirror, but talk of a move has dissipated in recent months.

The 22-year-old capitalised on a clever cross ball by Roberto Firmino to slot the ball home and take his personal goal tally to five for the season in Saturday’s win.

Volland has the speed and technique to operate in a number of different roles, but usually starts on the right-hand side of Hoffenheim’s 4-2-3-1 formation.

The gifted former 1860 Munich man is highly rated in German football and was included by Joachim Low in his extended squad for the World Cup.

Volland clearly has a bright future ahead of him and his ability to play anywhere across the forward line, as well as an out-and-out number nine, surely makes him an enticing prospect for Liverpool or Arsenal.

Although other German stars such as Marco Reus or Julian Draxler may get much of the media attention, a summer bid for Volland would be a more affordable and shrewd move by the powers that be at Anfield or the Emirates Stadium.
