Liverpool fans can't believe Klopp allegedly wants Max Kruse

Liverpool fans support their team before the Premier League match between Liverpool FC and Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield on May 12, 2019 in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

Liverpool have been linked with German forward Max Kruse.

Liverpool will be looking to make signings this summer, having missed out on the Premier League title to Manchester City, despite a spirited fight.

The Reds came up just short despite posting the third greatest points tally of the Premier League era, and Jurgen Klopp will be wondering how he can improve his side.

Another striker may just give Liverpool the additional firepower needed to take down City, especially as Daniel Sturridge is leaving this summer and Divock Origi's future remains unclear.

 

Fans will be dreaming of Timo Werner or an even bigger name, but a new name linked is Werder Bremen's Max Kruse, who will become a free agent next month.

Sport1 in Germany claim that Liverpool are interested in luring Kruse to Anfield, but face competition from Bayern Munich as the 31-year-old receives plenty of interest as a free agent.

Kruse hit 12 goals 14 assists in 36 games for Bremen this season, and he fits the perfectly into Liverpool's front three having played a similar role to Roberto Firmino for years now.

Available for free, Kruse could be a smart signing for Liverpool, but some fans aren't so convinced that a move for the German would bolster Klopp's squad.

A couple of fans compared Kruse to former Reds flop Rickie Lambert, believing that he's too old to make an impact, with many just baffled as to why Klopp would want a 31-year-old free agent.
