Former World Cup winner wants this German superstar to join Liverpool

Mario Gotze

Former Borussia Dortmund defender Kevin Grosskreutz believes Mario Gotze should move to Liverpool in hopes of igniting his career.

The Dortmund attacker hasn’t played any Bundesliga football this season under Lucien Favre. Gotze did start in a Champions League game against Club Brugge which Dortmund won 1-0.

Grosskreutz was speaking to Sky Deutschland (h/t Daily Mail) and defended the Dortmund star for some criticism levelled against him.

“I am very sorry for Mario Gotze at the moment, because stuff is written about him every day – and only about him.

“In Bruges, for example, the whole team didn’t play well.”

The 2014 World Cup winner further claimed that Jurgen Klopp knows his former teammate well and a move to Anfield would be great for the 26-year-old.

“Maybe it would be good to go abroad in the winter, where he has a bit more peace, and to bring his career back on track. Klopp knows him very well, he would be a good fit for Liverpool.”

Liverpool were linked with a move for Gotze before he rejoined Dortmund (h/t Independent) but the German hasn’t been in top form for a few years.

The 26-year-old is a top talent and Klopp could get the best out of him but it would be difficult fitting him inside this team.

Our first XI is extremely strong and it would be difficult to see Gotze replacing any of our attackers or midfielders. The German could be a decent squad player, however, and it will be interesting to see if he is willing to fight it out for a spot in the starting XI.

“It’s gone great”, “Another one” – Some Liverpool fans curse luck with star player picking up injury

Sadio Mane

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has sustained a broken thumb, according to reports (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The star was with the national side when the injury occurred during training, and the Liverpool Echo claims Mane would be assessed by the club once he returns to Melwood.

This is another injury that Jurgen Klopp has to deal with from the international break. Virgil van Dijk is still suffering from a rib problem while Mohamed Salah picked up a minor problem for Egypt.

The duo are expected to continue their treatment at Anfield, as per the report.

The 26-year-old Mane has four goals to his name this season, and it will be interesting to see if he plays against Huddersfield at the weekend. Liverpool are tied at the top of the table with Chelsea and Manchester City on 20 points.

Some Liverpool fans were cursing the international break for the number of injuries we picked up while a few believed this was good as Mane needed a rest.

Liverpool interested in signing 27-year-old superstar from Napoli

Lorenzo Insigne

Liverpool are interested in signing Napoli superstar Lorenzo Insigne, according to Rai Sport (h/t Metro).

The Italian scored a late winner for the Serie A club in our Champions League loss a couple of weeks ago. The report adds that Chelsea are keeping an eye on the 27-year-old too and would rival the Reds for any bid on the Italian.

The attacker is known to Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri during their time at Napoli. The report adds that any team looking to sign Insigne up would have to stump a huge fee since the player has four years left on his current deal.

The attacker has seven goals and an assist in all competitions for the Serie A side, so far, and helped them to second place in the league last season.

The report adds that Klopp wants more firepower for the Reds and Insigne could be the perfect fit at Anfield.

Liverpool have Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane as quality wingers and added Xherdan Shaqiri in the summer. However, signing Insigne could make our attack one of the best in the world.
