Liverpool are weighing up a summer bid for Werder Bremen striker Max Kruse, according to Sport 1.
Jurgen Klopp is set to bring in attacking reinforcements this summer, adding depth and quality to his squad in the process.
With Daniel Sturridge set to leave the club and Divock Origi’s future still up in the air, fresh faces are required.
Kruse has emerged as a surprise candidate for the Reds to sign, with Bayern Munich also eyeing up a move for the 31-year-old.
The veteran striker will leave Werder Bremen when his contract expires next month.
Kruse has scored 11 goals in the Bundesliga this season, as well as racking up nine assists.
Capable of leading the line but also dropping deeper as a false nine or a No.10, his versatility could appeal to Klopp.
With Roberto Firmino the undisputed first choice for Liverpool up front, someone of Kruse’s ilk could prove to be a shrewd signing.
