Thorgan Hazard's reported Liverpool snub highlights the problem facing Klopp

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp reacts during the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final second leg match between Porto and Liverpool at Estadio do Dragao on April 17, 2019 in Porto, Portugal.

Premier League challengers Liverpool reportedly made an offer for Hazard but he allegedly wants to swap Monchengladbach for Bundesliga giants Dortmund.

Liverpool have one of the most feared and well-established forward lines anywhere in European football.

With the Merseyside giants eyeing a first ever Premier League title and reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League to boot, their star-studded strike force has ripped defences apart both home and abroad.


Between them, Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have scored 61 goals in all competitions with manager Jurgen Klopp keeping his fabled front three intact wherever possible. In short, when they are fit, they start.

So any top class attacker linked with a move to Anfield will be fully aware that he, like Xherdan Shaqiri, Daniel Sturridge and co, would be forced to spend much of his time waiting for a chance.

This perhaps explains why Thorgan Hazard would prefer to sign for Borussia Dortmund than Liverpool this summer.

The Reds have made an offer for the Monchengladbach winger but, according to DH, he has no interest in moving to the North-West as he knows his game time would be drastically reduced.

So Liverpool appear to be stuck between a rock in a hard place. Klopp seemingly wants to add depth in attack, but convincing any player to sign as a backup to Salah, Firmino and Mane is easier said than done.
