Kohfeldt said: "I wish him that he finds a club where he can develop and once again brings top performance.

"If he stays in the Bundesliga, he does not necessarily have to hit us well."

There is an obvious attraction to join Liverpool and play in the Champions League, but Kruse would only be a back up at Anfield.
