Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp could reunite with a former favourite of his as he plots his first signing at the club, according to the Metro.
The German tactician is said to be eyeing Galatasaray outcast Kevin Grosskreutz as the first arrival of his tenure at the helm on Merseyside.
The pair worked together during a largely successful spell at Borussia Dortmund, winning two Bundesliga titles and reaching the Champions League final.
The 27-year old has not been able to represent the Turkish giants since moving to the club in August, as the relevant paperwork was not submitted on time.
As a result, he has not settled into his new surroundings and is bidding for a move away as Klopp reportedly explores the possibility of bringing him to Anfield.
A versatile player, the former German international can operate primarily as a left winger, though can switch flanks and be deployed as a right-back or right-midfielder.
Since the departures of Lazar Markovic and Raheem Sterling this summer, Liverpool have only Jordon Ibe to call on as a recognised wide option.
