Jurgen Klopp ended yet another trophyless season and would not have been happy with the way things went for his team, though the only major boost for him would be the fact that they managed to qualify for the Champions League. Inconsistency has been a real pain for the Reds over the years and now the German manager will want to improve his squad and as a result a lot of players being linked with a move to Anfield this summer.
One more star now wanted by the Merseyside outfit is German U-21 international Max Meyer, with the English club keeping tabs on him at the European U-21 competition in Poland.
The attacker can play at various positions, either in the centre or on the left side of the midfield and has been used as centre-forward too. He prefers to attack and has a couple of goals and assists to his name from last season, in all competitions for the German side.
In a total of 122 appearances for Schalke, he has managed to score 17 goals between 2013-17, though if given more chances, he could do a lot more.
He was also the skipper of the German national side that represented them in the Olympics last year, where he scored 4 times in 6 matches, which is quite impressive, though they lost the final to Brazil.
What can he bring to the team?
Well, the player is quite young and has a bright future in front of him, which would be attracting Klopp towards signing him, though he was initially considered just a potential option if the Salah deal did not go through.
However, now, despite the deal going through, he is still wanted by Klopp and could be a good star for the future, if utilised correctly. It will all depend on the plan that Klopp has for him and how he executes it.
Deal or no deal?
Well, though the player is still very young and experienced at the club and international level, personally, I am still not satisfied with his conversion rate for the club. Klopp does have more and better options he can look to, in case he is really eager to sign more stars, in the current transfer window. In terms of a buy, not the best, though the only benefit might be that he would be a free agent.
