Liverpool in the hunt for World Cup winning No.10

Mario Gotze has opened the door to a possible move to Liverpool this summer after refusing to rule out a reunion with former manager Jurgen Klopp. Klopp managed Gotze at Borussia Dortmund where together they won the Bundesliga and got to the final of the Champions League before he joined Bayern Munich in 2013.

Gotze returned to Dortmund three years later but has many injuries made him miss out on Germany’s World Cup 2018 squad as a result, leaving him considering a move to revitalise his career. He also revealed that Klopp tried to sign him for Liverpool when he decided to leave Bayern and refused to rule out moving to Anfield in the future.

Gotze may not be at the top of Liverpool’s shopping list, however, with the Reds were very close to buy Nabil Fekir from Lyon and also enquiring about Xherdan Shaqiri from relegated Stoke City. His career has been on a downward since scoring in the last World Cup final, with injury and inconsistency stopping him reaching his best level. In Dortmund squad, Gotze scored three goals and made six assists this season.
