According to a report from the BBC, Liverpool want former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp to replace Brendan Rodgers following the latter’s departure on Sunday.
The report claims that while Klopp is Liverpool’s first-choice option, they are also considering former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti, but if the German arrives at Anfield in due course, could he attempt to bring some of his former Dortmund players with him?
Here we consider three potential transfer options from the Bundesliga if Klopp does ultimately arrive:
Liverpool need more defensive stability and in German international Mats Hummels that would be solved in a single stroke.
The 26-year-old has two years left on his current deal and while he opted to remain at Dortmund this season a call from Klopp could tempt him to finally make the move to England.
The 26-year-old would light up Anfield and if Klopp wanted him, the club could afford to bid big for a player with three years left on his current deal.
Liverpool may have a lot of strikers on their books already but if Klopp arrived he may well look to a player he previously signed for Dortmund in the form of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gabon international would not come cheap with a contract until 2020, and he may not come at all, but if Klopp wanted to add more fire-power to his side the 26-year-old’s arrival would certainly do that.
Aubameyang has already scored 14 goals in 14 matches for Dortmund this season and he has 55 in total for the club.
