The World Cup winner will head to Anfield if both clubs can agree on a fee, according to reports.

Reports in Turkey today are suggesting that German World Cup winner Kevin Grosskreutz is all set to leave Turkish side Galatasaray, despite only joining the club in the summer.

Grosskreutz has not featured once for the Turkish side since leaving Borussia Dortmund in the summer and is now said to be up for sale. He was not registered in time by Galatasaray for the first-half of the season and he has become disillusioned with the situation.

The 27-year-old is, according to SportBild, no longer in Turkey. After making his intentions clear to leave the club he headed back to Germany and is now looking for a move closer to home - preferably in Germany.

But that does not mean English clubs should be put off. His preferred destinations in Germany are Borussia Dortmund and FC Koln, both of whom have rejected the notion of signing the player.

Liverpool are a team who could harbor realistic ambitions of getting their hands on the player.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp obviously knows the player well from his time at Dortmund where Grosskreutz was a regular first-team member for Die Schwarzgelden.

Now it looks like the player is on his way to Anfield.

Turkish paper Takvim have reported that Grosskreutz has agreed a three-year-deal with Liverpool.

The report goes on to claim that a deal will be agreed as soon as Liverpool and Gala come to an agreement over price - with the Turkish side wanting €2.5 million (£1.8 million) for the German international.

It looks like Liverpool are closing in on a deal for their first signing under Jurgen Klopp.
