Liverpool manager Jurgen Klop is looking to complete a deal for his former player Kevin Grosskreutz, according to reports.
The versatile winger was managed by Jurgen Klopp in his time at Borussia Dortmund and the manager is keen on reuniting with the 27 year old at Liverpool.
Grosskreutz joined Galatasaray from BVB last summer but the Turkish club couldn’t complete the necessary paper work in order to include the player in their 25 man squad list for the season.
The winger is yet to play a game for the Turkish giants and is said to be interested in a move away from Galatasaray having failed to settle down in Turkey.
According to the Metro, Klopp is ready to rescue the midfielder from his Turkish nightmare by making him his first signing when the winter transfer window opens next month.
Grosskreutz played over 175 games for BVB and scored 23 goals. Klopp and Grosskreutz won two Bundesliga titles together at Dortmund.
The midfielder moved to Germany in 2009 and moved to Turkey last summer for a fee of €1.5m. However, FIFA failed to sanction the player’s move to Galatasaraay as the Turkish club failed to submit the necessary documents before deadline.Follow Football News Arena on Facebook and Twitter for the latest transfer news, injury news, team news and rumours from across the major Leagues in Europe and around the World.
