Following their underwhelming title defence of 2020/21, it was only natural that Liverpool would be linked with a long list of potential arrivals.
The Reds have indeed been rumoured to be interested in a number of players all around Europe.
However, one player who has apparently not yet caught the club’s eye is Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic. That has not stopped the player from talking up a potential move to Anfield, stating that he would “find it tough” to reject an offer from the Merseysiders in an interview to Bild.
The 23-year-old added: “I really like Liverpool. This club is simply special to me. When I was a kid, I saw the Champions League final in 2005 when Liverpool came back from 3-0 down against Milan to win. That gripped me.”
Kalajdzic is certainly a player who Jurgen Klopp should look to bring to Anfield.
Currently in the midst of his most lethal campaign so far, the 23-year-old has plundered 12 goals in the Bundesliga this season despite having only started 13 matches. The Austrian is also in brilliant form at the time of writing, having netted in his last six consecutive league games.
Standing at two metres tall, his height and physical presence would give Klopp an excellent and potent weapon in the air.
With his stunning record and eye for goal, Kalajdzic should provide a better option than current back-up striker Divock Origi, who has only managed to net 15 goals over the last three seasons.
A swoop for Kalajdzic would also be an affordable one for Liverpool to complete. The twice capped Austrian international is rated at just £6.3m at the current time and is out of contract in 2023.
His current employers Stuttgart may have to sell at some point soon to avoid losing the youngster for nothing, surely unfathomable considering his undoubted talent and potential.
Whilst there are seemingly more concrete links to players potentially on Liverpool’s shortlist, Kalajdzic could give the Reds’ frontline a different complexion and should definitely be under consideration from Jurgen Klopp.
