Borussia Dortmund star Mario Gotze wants to move to Liverpool this summer, according to Bundesliga expert Lee Price.
Speaking to the Express, Price – who has written two books on German football, including a biography on Reds’ manager Jurgen Klopp – said that Gotze wants to make a move to England and that Liverpool are the team he wants to join.
The German star is out of favour at Borussia Dortmund, and wants to test himself in England, plus would command a relatively modest fee in today’s hyperactive transfer market. Most Premier League clubs would take the star, but Liverpool would be his top choice, largely because of the Klopp factor – who he worked with at Dortmund.
Price also said that Klopp thinks he would be able to get the best out of Gotze again. The current Liverpool manager was the man who promoted Gotze into Borussia Dortmund’s first-team back in 2010.
Klopp thinks he can revitalise the player’s career, unearth a bargain, and add strength in depth to his squad.
