Everton boss David Moyes is thought to be in the chase for the German danger man Miroslav Klose as his contract with Bayern Munich meets a dead end releasing him to ply his trade elsewhere.
The hit man has proven to be a decisive weapon leading the line down the years for both club and country. Klose has hit the back of the net 61 times in his national shirt gaining 107 caps, including 14 goals in world cup finals leaving him second trailing behind Brazilian Ronaldo’s record by one.
2006 witnessed the front man at his best. He picked up the golden boot in the world cup, following hitting 25 for Werder Bremen making him the Bundesliga league top scorer and also picking up German player of the year.
The out of favour veteran has only managed 26 appearances this season beating the keeper five times and as he approaches the age of 33 he is eyeing up a fresh challenge, surely the last move of his career.
Mirrorfootball have reported Blues boss Moyes is looking to offer the German a two year contract, but certainly faces a battle on his hands to land his man, as the likes of Juventus, Valencia and Spurs also haven’t ruled out their interest.
According to soccernet.espn.go.com Klose won’t be heading to any of the above and have reported his preferred destination would be a move to Lazio, a transfer that fell through in January. He has admitted his love for the city and admiration for the club.
I think there may be life left in the old dog yet, and he would be a great addition to any squad on a free transfer, not sure we will see him in the Prem though.
