Liverpool lining up major move for star to replace frustrated midfielder

El Ghazi

Our Liverpool supporting locals in tonight are still delighted that their club posses perhaps the most hipster manager in European football in Mr Jurgen Klopp.

The charismatic German tactician has already had quite the impression on Merseyside, though ‘Kloppmania’ will surely go into overdrive this summer as he enters the transfer market.

As wonderful as it is for the Anfield faithful to see links with world stars like Mario Gotze, the nature of their manager does suggest perhaps the club will look under the radar for new talent.

While that may be a pretty hard task in the intricate world that is modern football, reports from Football Insider suggest Klopp is casting glances over perhaps less celebrated names.

It is claimed the former Borussia Dortmund coach is ready to make a move for gifted young Ajax winger Anwar El Ghazi in order to replace Jordon Ibe.

The latter, though a highly rated talent with the club, has been linked with moves to Arsenal and Tottenham after falling out of favour.

El Ghazi has emerged as one of the most promising wing talents on the continent due to his exploits in the Dutch capital this term, scoring 11 goals from a wide berth while chipping in with 3 assists.

Natural width has been a issue for Liverpool this season, with Lazar Markovic loaned out to Turkey and England star Raheem Sterling sold to Manchester City last summer.

Why would Liverpool want to replace Ibe with El Ghazi? Why not have both and improve on what they already have? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
