Though the season ended in a rather damp squib in the Europa League final loss to Basel, there’s little doubt the arrival of Jurgen Klopp has lit the embers of optimism at Anfield.
The German tactician had a mixed start to his tenure on Merseyside, though the nature of some of the performances of his side have seen the Reds excited for the future under him.
Even without the added allure of Champions League football, the 46-year old’s name carries weight on the continent and the club have been linked with a number of top players.
One of those in particular is World Cup winning hero Mario Gotze, who shares a good relationship with Klopp following their successful time at Borussia Dortmund together.
While news about his potential move continues to develop, another player at the Bavarian giants is reportedly open to a switch.
According to Bundesliga expert Lee Price (via the Daily Star), midfielder Pierre Hojbjerg is keen on a move to Anfield in order to work with his countryman.
The Danish international is allowed to leave the Allianz Arena after spending the last two seasons on loan with Schalke and Augsburg.
Will Liverpool finish in the Top 4 next season?
