Liverpool Eyeing A Move For This La Liga Midfielder: Should Klopp Launch A Bid For Him?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, El Nacional stated that Liverpool are eyeing a move for Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos. It has been claimed that the Reds head coach Jurgen Klopp is a big admirer of the German international and could be weighing up an offer for him.

Kroos’ Decent Form At The Spanish Capital This Season

The 31-year-old is having another solid campaign at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. He has been responsible for producing some impressive displays as a key member of Carlo Ancelotti’s midfield department. Kroos has featured in 13 matches for Los Blancos this season, registering two goals and two assists in the process across all fronts.

The German sensation has done well to average 0.7 tackles, 2.0 shots and 1.9 key passes per game in La Liga. He has even been accurate when distributing possession deep inside the opponent’s half after making 95.1% of his attempted passes in the Spanish top-flight (stats via whoscored).

Should Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp Launch A Bid For Kroos?

Kroos can get stuck in with a few solid tackles to make life tough for the opposition in midfield. He can also strike the ball with power and accuracy which makes him such a potent goal-threat from long range. Kroos has got a wealth of experience and has won a lot of major honours for both club and country during his career.

The 106-time German international is a specialist from dead-ball situations and can even create some inviting chances for his teammates to score. However, father time is slowly but surely catching up with his game, so he won’t be a long-term option for the Reds to consider next year.

Even then, the pros outweigh the cons of recruiting him as the experienced playmaker will definitely enhance the overall quality of Klopp‘s midfield and could help the Merseyside outfit challenge for multiple trophies over the next couple of seasons. He has also got the winning mindset to be a success story at Anfield which is why the Reds should think about launching a move to lure him to English football this January or in the summer.
