Liverpool fans react as Max Kruse claims he turned down Anfield move

Experienced centre-forward Max Kruse has claimed that he turned down the chance to join Liverpool ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

Available on a free transfer after leaving Werder Bremen at the end of June, Kruse has said that he had a number of options when it came to his next club.

One of those was Liverpool, according to the Germany international, but he decided to make the move to Fenerbahce.

Jurgen Klopp’s side lost Daniel Sturridge at the end of last season and are therefore quite short when it comes to senior options in the final third of the field.

Kruse would have represented a low-cost, experienced option.

And the 31-year-old managed a respectable 11 Bundesliga goals for Bremen last term.

That said, it would be fair to say that a number of Liverpool fans are not too bothered about missing out on the chance to sign him, whilst others are unsure whether the forward is actually telling the truth.
