Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp never misses a chance to pick out a talented player, be it in a Liverpool shirt or from the opponent team playing against us. It is no surprise then that the German tactician has showered praise on Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder, Pascal Gross.

German midfielder Pascal Gross made the move to Brighton in the summer from Bundesliga side Ingolstadt in the summer and at that time itself, it was hailed as a visionary move.

H has the ability to slot in both as a passer and a scorer, and Gross has justified the faith in his abilities. The midfielder has notched up 3 goals and 5 assists already in 15 Premier League appearances, making him one of the standout players of the season.

The £2.7million signing is already being viewed as a bargain signing for the Seagulls who are looking impressive this season. That has the player earn a number of admirers and joining that list is our own Klopp.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss seems to have admired his fellow countryman in the buildup to his side’s 5-1 demolition of Albion on Saturday. While the midfielder has been deployed in deep positions, Klopp spoke very highly about Gross’ abilities.

He was quoted by Brighton and Hove Independent as saying:

“He’s been really good. A smart signing, really good. I have known him since he was a kid, he is a fantastic player that has made another big step physical wise. “He has a nice right foot, is good at set-pieces and a nice shooter. He is a smart player and I like him.”

The 26-year-old’s form may be a surprise for some of the Brighton fans but for Klopp and anyone following the Bundesliga action, it would not be anything new. Despite Ingolstadt’s relegation from the Bundesliga last term, Gross created more chances than any other player in the top flight. That apart, he scored 4 goals, which highlight his potential in that area as well.

One thing he would certainly enjoy is Klopp’s admiration. The German tactician’s eye for talent is well-known and I think this should be taken more seriously than any other. I feel Gross can make the cut at Liverpool, although it is better to see if he finishes the season at Brighton on a high.

If he does, then it won’t be a surprise if Klopp goes with a bid for his services.

“We would take Pulisic or Fekir” – Some Liverpool fans want winter signing as journalist shoots down interest in £85m star



Ousmane Dembele

Ousmane Dembele

James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo has claimed that the Reds are not interested in launching a bid for Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele in January.

Liverpool have been linked with a massive £85million (h/t Liverpool Echo) deal for the French forward, however, the report claims that Jurgen Klopp is not willing to buy players in January as he believes the team can challenge on all fronts.

The French attacker joined the Catalan giants from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of £135million (h/t Liverpool Echo), but injuries have hurt his progress at Barcelona.

Pearce did believe that Klopp could spend in the winter window only if we are dealt with a number of injuries.

Liverpool are second in the Premier League and have a decent chance of making it out of their Champions League group too.

However, some fans were not happy with the report from Pearce and wanted the club to sign an attacking midfielder in the winter window.

Christian Pulisic

Christian Pulisic hasn’t ruled out playing in the Premier League someday. The American is one of the best youngsters in the Bundesliga and was brought to Borussia Dortmund by Jurgen Klopp.

The Express reports that Liverpool have been linked with a move for the 20-year-old.

Pulisic was quoted by the Express as saying:

“England, the Premier League, is a league where lots of kids dream of playing.

“So there is no reason why maybe one day I won’t play here.”

The Express adds that Klopp bid £11million for the American in 2016 but Dortmund rejected that offer. Pulisic has helped the club to the top of the Bundesliga this season and has two goals and two assists.

The report adds that Manchester United are also interested in the 20-year-old, and could rival any bid made by the Anfield giants.

The American added that he is enjoying his season with the Germans and knows that tabloid tales are part of the game.

Pulisic would be a wonderful addition to the team, and the youngster can play in a number of positions in the attacking third.
