In the Football Transfer Tavern of late, our merry band of Liverpool supporters have just touched down to earth following the appointment of Jurgen Klopp and the conversation has now turned to who the new Reds boss might target in the January transfer window.
We say touched down to earth but a few Reds fans in the corner might have had a bit too much to drink when they claim the likes of Robert Lewandowski are in Liverpool’s sights come the New Year!
While the Polish striker won’t be rocking up at Anfield in January, one player who is far more likely to is Borussia Dortmund’s Ilkay Gundogan who became an established German international under Klopp’s tutelage at Signal Iduna Park.
Gundogan has been linked with an Anfield switch by The Express of late, latching themselves onto the fact that the defensive midfielder heaped praise on the Merseyside giants on social media following the appointment of Klopp.
This could of naturally simply been a goodwill gesture and since, Jurgen Klopp has rejected claims that Marco Reus and Gundogan could be following him to Anfield from the Bundesliga.
Then again, the new Reds boss could equally be putting rival suitors and the media off the scent so with that in mind, we’ve devised a list of five players who could end up following Ilkay Gundogan to Liverpool in January.
