Liverpool target, Stefan Kiessling has hinted that he may be leaving Bayer Leverkusen in the January transfer window, according to reports. The 31 year old striker was speaking to Sky sports in Germany after the club’s 5-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday.
The player was quoted to be saying: ‘’I have given it a thought and I will keep thinking about it. The situation is that of course of course I will like to be playing – I have been here for 10 years and love the club and everybody knows how happy I am here. I’ve got a good relationship with the fans and also with the club.
I love playing here and I love this club, and it’s overall very, very difficult situation and everybody knows this. I will be playing a bit of football at the end of my career and that is why I’ve got to give things good thought, I will speak to the bosses and see what the best solution is.
The striker has found game time hard to come by since Bayer Leverkusen secured the services of Javier Hernandez from Manchester United on transfer deadline day; the Mexican international has been in red hot form; winning the Bundesliga player for the month of November and hitting a hatrick against Monchengladbach.
Jurgen Klopp has been linked with a move for the striker, with Daniel Sturridge struggling for fitness and Christian Benteke too suffering the same situation, Klopp would need the services of Kiessling to back up his attacking unit.
Though at 31 year of age, it would be hard for Kiessling be a regular in the Premier League, so this deal may be seen as a short time back up for Liverpool; if Kiessling eventually makes the switch to Anfield.
