It looks like things might be about to get exciting at Liverpool this summer as the club hurtles into its first full and proper transfer window with Jurgen Klopp in charge.

The club are hoping that Klopp will be able to use his considerable sway to convince at least one of his former charges to join him at Anfield, with The Express reporting that the German coach is “confident” he’ll be able to take Mario Gotze off Bayern Munich’s hands for a “cut-price” fee.

Having been bumped down the pecking order by Pep Guardiola, Gotze has failed to make much of a dent at Bayern since joining from Klopp’s Dortmund in the summer of 2013 and would apparently be available for as little as £15-20million – not bad money for a man who has quite literally won a World Cup with his little toe.

He has one year remaining on his contract at Bayern which is why the fee will be comparatively low by modern-day standards, although his personal terms are likely to swell considerably the overall transfer package.

Add Gotze to a midfield throng already containing Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino and you’re looking at an enticing stable of ‘turn-up-for-one-game-in-every-three’ attacking entities.

Just the tricky business of sourcing a proper striker to sort out now.

    Good news for us LFC fans, however as our penalty area often looks like the ending to the Crystal Maze, a goalkeeper and a couple of centre backs would be top of my list.

    First, Götze will talk to Ancelotti. Second, I highly doubt that Götze would play for a club who fails to reach Champions League.
