Though not the best of the seasons, Jurgen Klopp had a decent time in his first full season at Anfield as he helped Liverpool to the fourth place in the points table and consequently into the Champions League next season. However, it is now going to be tough for Klopp to improve the squad enough to help them compete at the highest stage next season.

The manager has already completed the signing of Mohamed Salah for the next season and reports suggest that Klopp is looking high and dry for a few more additions to his squad. One player extensively linked with a move to Anfield is Schalke star, Max Meyer.

The 21-year old captained the German national team in the Olympics not so long ago where he also scored in the finals against Brazil. He has just a year left on his contract and Schalke are not ready to let him leave on a free next season and are ready to offload him this summer for less than £20m.

And according to reports from the Daily Star, Jurgen Klopp is one of the few managers keen on the German playmaker for a move this summer.

Capable of playing on either wing, Meyer is a central attacking midfielder who loves to have the ball at his feet. Quick with his feet and strong with his play, Meyer is a robust midfielder who hates to be dominated. He loves to run the game at his own pace and at just 21, is way matured beyond his age.

With just two goals and five assists in a season hit by a couple of injuries, Meyer has been inconsistent but Jurgen Klopp is a long term admirer of his style of play and has now reportedly decided to add him to his squad at Anfield.

The Reds already have a plethora of talent in attack with the likes of Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Divock Origi, Danny Ings, Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Georginio Wijnaldum, all fighting for just four places in the first team. Meyer will not add much to the first team but he will definitely complete the attacking unit that Liverpool can confidently take into the Champions League next season.

With four different tournaments to juggle, Klopp will need all the depth he can take in his squad for the next season and spending just under £20m for one of the most exciting talents in his homeland is something he does not want to miss out on.
