Liverpool have reportedly approached German attacker Max Kruse about a  potential move to Anfield this summer.

Sport1 claim that the Reds are holding talks with the player who is out of contract at Werder Bremen this summer.

Kruse will leave the Bundesliga side for free when his deal expires next month.

Bayern Munich have also been linked with a move, as a potential back-up to Robert Lewandowski.

Liverpool are eager to add reinforcements to their front line this summer and with Kruse available for free, he could prove to be a potential bargain for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

At the age of 31, Kruse would add plenty of experience to the Liverpool squad, with over a dozen Germany caps to his name.

Despite his age, he has proved his quality this season with 11 league goals and a further 10 assists.

Finding suitable replacements for the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino has been Liverpool’s biggest challenge this season and Kruse could go some way to rectifying that.
