Latest Liverpool transfer news: Liverpool interested in German striker Max Kruse
The English striker has had his injury troubles during Jurgen Klopp’s tenure and even saw his role diminished recently with Divock Origi preferred to lead the line in Roberto Firmino’s absence.
Kruse’s age could be a problem
Kruse can play out wide or as a central striker, and could do a decent job coming off the bench. The problem lies in the fact that the German is 31 and it would be a surprise if Liverpool moved for the striker.
The Reds have a great young side currently and we have seen Divock Origi perform well recently. The 24-year-old scored a brace in the 4-0 win over Barcelona to take us into the Champions League final.
Rhian Brewster is also waiting in the wings to play for the first-team and has recovered from a couple of nasty injuries.
Klopp has done a magnificent job with most of his signings since taking over at Anfield. The only one that did not hit the mark was Loris Karius’ move from Mainz.

The German manager could still find a way to get the best out of Kruse should he sign him, and it will be interesting to see who we move for once the Champions League final is done.
