Liverpool: Report makes major Toni Kroos transfer claim

Liverpool: Report makes major Toni Kroos transfer claim -Liverpool Transfer Rumours

As per El Nacional, a major Liverpool transfer update has surfaced as Fenway Sports Group weigh a bid for Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos – with his stance also detailed.

The Lowdown: Liverpool eye midfield additions…

As previously reported, the Reds and manager Jurgen Klopp have seemingly set the club’s sights on bolstering midfield options in 2022.

Indeed, the likes of Denis Zakaria, who could leave for Borussia Monchengladbach for free at the end of 2021/2022, is on Liverpool’s radar while Borussia Dortmund ace Jude Bellingham is also appreciated at Anfield.

However, it appears the Bundesliga isn’t Klopp’s only port of call as El Nacional share news on midfielder Kroos and his links to the club.

The Latest: FSG weigh £25m bid…

As per El Nacional, despite Kroos being happy at the Bernabeu, Real president Florentino Perez apparently has ‘no plans to meet’ with the player over a contract extension as his current deal looks set to expire in 2023.

This coming summer, as a result, will be the Galacticos’ ‘last chance’ to sell for a profit as things stand as the German star also knows he’ll have ‘interesting offers’.

As such, Kroos himself ‘only anticipates’ one destination in the Premier League and ‘specifically’ Liverpool – where he would ‘also be delighted’ to work under Klopp.

Liverpool’s interest, meanwhile, is thought to be ‘very serious’ – so much so they ‘would be willing’ to pay around €30 million (£25m) to secure his services.

The Verdict: Big claim…

The 32-year-old being open to a Merseyside move to work under Klopp, whilst the club also ponder a £25m offer, certainly comes as a big claim.

Given his age, you would think Kroos’ potential signing may come as quick fix when compared to the likes of Bellingham and Zakaria who, comparatively, come with much longer shelf lives.

However, given his statistics, there is little arguing the World Cup winner would add serious quality to Klopp’s midfield.

According to WhoScored, the £210,000-per-week star has averaged far more key passes (2.4) and shots at goal per 90 (2.4) domestically than any of Liverpool’s current central midfield players.

As well as this, Kroos has completed 94.9% of his passes to teammates in that time – far eclipsing that of any Reds man with more than one league start (WhoScored).

If Liverpool can secure a move later this year, it would certainly back Klopp with some serious quality and depth in the middle of the park.
