Liverpool signed a number of players from the Bundesliga this summer as Jurgen Klopp began to put his stamp on his new look side.
Two players – centre back Ragnar Klavan and keeper Alex Manninger – both joined the Reds from FC Augsburg; highly-rated centre half Joel Matip made the switch from Schalke; and finally the much sought after Mainz keeper Loris Karius moved to Anfield.
All 4 of their Bundesliga signings have settled well into life in the Premier League, most possibly due to the presence of Klopp himself – formerly of both Mainz and more famously Borussia Dortmund – alongside other former Bundesliga players such as Emre Can and Roberto Firmino.
Klopp is slowly building himself a squad that suits his management style and style of play, and will more than likely go to recruit further players from the continent in January, and indeed next summer having missed out on a number of key targets this summer.
It seems the German prefers the style of player developed in countries within Eastern Europe such as Austria, Holland and of course Germany – which appears to be his hunting ground of choice when it comes to finding new talent.
At may need to look no further, as these THREE budding Bundesliga talents should be the next on his enviable hit-list for the Reds…..
