Liverpool interested in Real Madrid star Toni Kroos

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is eyeing a transfer swoop for Real Madrid star Toni Kroos…

What’s the story?

According to Spanish publication El Nacional, Klopp would be delighted to bring his German compatriot to the Premier League and Anfield.

The report adds that Liverpool’s interest in the midfielder is very much serious, and that he would be promised a leading role at the Merseyside club along with a bumper three-year deal.

World Cup and Champions League winner

Kroos has been one of this generation’s most successful players, with a host of trophies both at club and international level.

The midfielder has won the World Cup with Germany back in 2014, as well as winning four Champions League titles with both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich respectively.

Kroos, who has previously been described by Klopp as “one of the biggest talents in German football for a long, long, long time”, could add a touch of class and composure to the Reds’ midfield.

In fact, despite now being 32, the Madrid star continues to be one of his side’s best performing players – as per Whoscored, his average match rating of 7.25 is good enough to rank him fifth in the entire Los Blancos squad, while unsurprisingly he boasts the best passing accuracy and most passes of any Madrid player who’s started more than one game.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Ajax's Perr Schuurs

First up in this 2020/21 season quiz, how many PL goals did Mo Salah score?

It’s no surprise then that he has been widely praised for his ability in recent years, not least from those who have seen him first-hand in training and in games.

Real Madrid teammate, Vinicius Jr, said of the German: “Toni is unbelievable, he’s a wonderful player. Every time he steps onto the pitch, he shows his immense class, nobody plays like him.”

The £22.5m-rated star could add that extra bit of elite experience and quality to this Liverpool side. Reds fans will surely be excited with a swoop for someone of Kroos’ class.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are scouting this AFCON starlet…
