Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has overseen some brilliant signings during his time at Anfield so far, with £13million (BBC) winger Xherdan Shaqiri and £8million (BBC) defender Andrew Robertson proof of that.
The Reds manager may be up to his old tricks again, as he is reportedly lining up a swoop for Brighton’s Pascal Gross.
According to the Mirror, Klopp is reportedly considering a £15million move for the Brighton midfielder in the January transfer window.
It is understood that the Merseyside club want to add the free-kick specialist to their squad to help a Premier League title bid.
Gross may not be a high-profile name linked with a switch to Anfield, but he could be another masterstroke signing.
One area that Liverpool should be trying to strengthen in the New Year is their creativity from midfield, as that could be the difference between a league title or not.
Gross could be a shrewd signing for Klopp’s team, as he would be great competition for Adam Lallana and already has experience in the Premier League.
The 27-year-old is a central midfielder that has the qualities to push forward into the final third and unlock defences with his vision and passing.
He was colossal in helping Brighton stay in the top flight last season, scoring seven goals and supplying eight assists in return for them.
Gross would surely flourish in a much stronger Liverpool team that dominate the ball and may be the type of clever signing that helps them getting over the line this season.
The 30,000-a-week (Sportrac) ace hasn’t hit the same dizzy heights this season compared to last year due to injury problems, but his back in the Brighton team and Liverpool fans have learned to trust Klopp’s judgement.
