The new Liverpool handler has great plans for his team as the Winter transfer window approaches, and has had the attack department as one of his most important priorities. With Daniel Strurridge and Ings injured, the Merseyside could do with some attacking options and Klopp is said to be in contact with the representatives of Hoffenheim forward, Kevin Volland. The 23 year-old winger cum striker is reportedly greatly admired by the German tactician from his days at Dortmund, and will finally get his opportunity to have him under his tutelage if a January move works out.
Volland was teammates with Summer arrival, Roberto Firmino and a move away from the Bundesliga to the EPL has always been in the books since the departure of his former teammate. Liverpool have been linked with the former Germany youth international since the Summer transfer, as he was seen as a perfect replacement for the then-departing Raheem Sterling. His speed and high-pressing style come handy for the new playing style and the coach’s preference of counter attacks when possible.
The Germany international no doubt has a lot to offer to the Reds if he is eventually signed. With 40 goals in over 150 League appearances in the German League, his attacking prowess is highly rated and he has a silverboot from the last UEFA European Under-21 Championship as proof . Able to play from the right, but predominantly a left footer, he can also lead the attack.
