With the signing of Serbian, Marko Grujic nearing completion, German coach, Jurgen Klopp has moved on to his next target. He is going for Germany Utility player, Kevin Grosskreutz who played under Klopp at Borussia Dortmund and is currently donning the colours of Turkish giants, Galatasaray.
The Brazil 2014 world cup winner signed for Galatasaray in the summer but has not kicked a ball for the Istanbul club as they were unable to file in the necessary paper work in time.
The 27-year old is capable of playing at right full back or on the right or left wing. The player was a key member of the Dortmund team that won back to back Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012.
He also helped the Yellow and Blacks win the DFB Pokal in 2012, DFL Super cup in 2013 and 2014 and was a prominent member of the exciting Dortmund team that went all the way to the 2013 Champions League Final where they eventually lost to fellow Bundesliga side, Bayern Munich in what was a close game which resulted in a narrow 2-1 loss. He made 176 appearances, scoring 23 goals for Dortmund and has been a German international since 2010 though he has only 5 caps to his name.
Jurgen Klopp is anxious to build a team in his own image and that can play his style and signing Grosskreutz is a step in that direction.
