Now that Liverpool have finally taken pragmatic action and parted company with the ill-fated Brendan Rodgers at Anfield, perhaps Reds fans can start looking forward to their upcoming Premier League fixtures with a renewed sense of optimism on board.
In sourcing Jurgen Klopp, the long standing Premier League club have arguably appointed the most coveted name available on the managerial circuit at the moment – due to the German’s explosive reputation among the Bundesliga, and most notably with Borussia Dortmund.
The 48-year-old tactician is likely to attract a higher calibre of player than his predecessor at Anfield, with many expecting several current BVB stars to be linking up with their former coach at Liverpool in the not too distant future.

So then, as Germany’s Marco Reus has previously gone down as a major transfer target for the Reds in the past, is it only a matter of time before Klopp reignites his working relationship with the Dortmund star in the Premier League?
The early indications would certainly seem that way. Borussia Dortmund have a distinct reputation of selling their most illustrious names with every passing transfer window – and although the newly appointed Thomas Tuchel seems to be doing the business down at the Signal Iduna Park right now – Jurgen Klopp’s current position at Anfield will undoubtedly prove a tempting venture for many of his former stars.
Having said that, perhaps now may admittedly arrive as a slightly premature moment to start speaking of further moves in the transfer market at Liverpool Football Club. Klopp is yet to truly get to grips with his newfound set of players, the club have already spent a vast amount of cash across the summer with Brendan Rodgers, and the Reds already play host to some impressive attacking talent at this stage in the proceedings.
Jurgen Klopp has also previously revealed that he has no intention of raiding former club, Borussia Dortmund, any time soon. As the enigmatic German seems like a man of his word and someone somewhat opposed to the mind-game tactics continuously employed by the likes of Jose Mourinho and co. – maybe Liverpool ultimately won’t be signing any former Dortmund stars as early as this season.
Yet because Klopp’s new side have just paid witness to some frustratingly ill-timed injury concerns among their current attacking options at the club, perhaps the ex-BVB manager will change his mind by the time the January transfer window eventually arrives. With Danny Ings, Christian Benteke and Daniel Sturridge all facing their own injury related worries this term – Liverpool may need to sign another striker this winter, whether or not the club initially planned on doing so.
Marco Reus would therefore represent the ideal target for the Merseysiders this season. The 26-year-old German is distinctly quick on the break, he is certainly gifted when it comes to scoring goals from outside the box and would fit in almost perfectly with the current philosophy in place behind the scenes at Anfield. That much remains pretty definitive with all things considered.
Yes, the former Borussia Monchengladbach star has had his own fitness concerns to think about throughout the years, and he would obviously set the Reds back a fair bit in the transfer market by all accounts – but seeing as Liverpool previously saw fit to splash the cash under the increasingly questionable reign of Brendan Rodgers at Anfield – it would seem silly to put an end to such an ambitious approach now that Jurgen Klopp has finally been sworn in.
At this stage in the game it remains hard to call this particular transfer saga either way. Although Marco Reus’ reported move to the Premier League arguably won’t take place as early as the January transfer window for Liverpool and their newly appointed manager – expect the Reds to be continuously linked with the German international for a good few months to come.
One way or another, it ultimately remains difficult to imagine the move not taking place at least somewhere down the line – perhaps when Liverpool have re-cemented themselves as one of the best teams in England, and a side more than worthy of winning the Champions League trophy once again.
