So where do you stand, Reds?
Would you take Mario Gotze in the summer, if Jurgen Klopp’s rumoured interest proved correct…?
Yesterday, news broke in Goal that Klopp hasn’t given up on acquiring the World Cup winner, who turned us down to sign for Borussia Dortmund in 2016.
His move back to his old club hasn’t gone well, making just nine Bundesliga starts all term, currently out indefinitely due to a metabolic problem.
Signing him at the end of this season would clearly be a risk, but one that could pay off. Klopp maximised him at Dortmund and knows exactly how to deploy Gotze and also how to coax out his best level. But his rumoured myopathy puts his long-term future as a professional footballer in doubt.
The reaction online, is mixed!
Liverpool not able to sign Gotze last year but then signing him in summer after being diagnosed with a muscle disease is destined to happen

If Liverpool could sign Gotze on the cheap and feed him nowt but celery and water for pre season, I’d take a punt on him.

For what it’s worth – i think Mario Gotze will come to Liverpool this summer – Champions League football or not.

Mario Gotze to Liverpool ??? turning into the arsenal of the transfer world and being linked to players they don’t need

Sorry Gotze, Liverpool shouldn’t be your stepping stone to revitalizing your career.

@MelissaReddy_ let’s get rid of Sturridge and his injuries so we can get Gotze and his injuries. Liverpool mentality.
