Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has been given the green light to raid former club Dortmund in the transfer market after the Bundesliga club’s CEO dismissed talk of an agreement whereby the Reds are prevented from dealing with the side.
Klopp spent seven years with the German side and after winning back-to-back Bundesliga titles and guiding the side to a Champions League final where they lost 2-1 in an all-German final to arch rivals Bayern Munich, Klopp left for a 6 months Sabbatical before taking over from Brendan Rogers who was relieved of his job due to series of poor results.
There is on- going speculations that Klopp would return to his former side to entice the likes of Marco Reus and Ilkay Gundogan to Merseyside. Dortmund’s CEO, Hans Joachim Watzke has even suggested that Klopp’s relationship with his former side could make transfer easier.
Marco Reus is an exceptional talent, with natural ability on the ball, a brilliant player, blessed with abundance of skills and intelligence about the game, but his rise to stardom has been hampered by injuries, he missed going to the World Cup with the German national side due to a serious injury; and the same situation has seen him miss some couple of games for the Dortmund team.
He would be a fantastic addition to the growing number of stars at Liverpool who now have Philip Coutinho, Roberto Ferminho, Christian Benteke etc.
