Could Liverpool Really Snap Up This Borussia Dortmund Star ?

Despite a decent run games in the league, Liverpool showed it last night against Young Boys in a 2-2 draw in their Europa league group fixture that they still lack the cutting edge to finish of teams at crucial times. Liverpool lost their lead twice to Young boys to round off a disappointing night at the Anfield. Its the consistency and the mental strength that has been lacking from the Reds ever since they lost their way under Rafa Benitez and are still finding it difficult to perform.

In terms of midfield they have a good number of players who can certainly play a lot better than the team which had Downing and Henderson in the starting line-up last year. It is the striking department that has been the problem for the Reds. Luis Suarez has been in red hot form recently, but there has always been one big question. What if the Uruguayan gets injured ? There are practically no one there to replace him. Liverpool should be thankful to the emergence of youngster Raheem Sterling who is doing his fare share of getting in the score sheet. 

Borussia Dortmund winger Kevin Grosskreutz

With Borini as the other attacking option, who has fractured his leg, Rodgers have to seek new options come this January. And according to sky sports, Borussia Dortmund winger Kevin Grosskreutz has been linked with a move to Liverpool. And it is also believed that  Grosskreutz, 24, is willing to move the premier league as he hopes that the exposure to football in England can turn him into a more mature footballer. 

‘Should I continue with my career in a foreign country at some point, the Premier League of England would be my top priority,’ said Grosskreutz. 

‘I really like the way football is played over there.’

Liverpool scouts were on duty when Dortmund played Ajax on Wednesday in the Champions league group stage. And if all goes well, Liverpool could land this £10 million rated winger at Anfield. However, tempting Dortmund to sell and Grosskreutz to head to Liverpool looks a tough task as the Germans value their star around  £25 million. And Grosskreutz’s contract run until 2014, so it’s all up-to Brendan Rodgers and Jürgen Klopp to decide the player’s future.
