World Cup hero has been asked to join Liverpool

Liverpool cinched the first spot at the top of the Premier League log, after their 3-0 rout of The Saints Southampton, at Anfield on Saturday.

Mark Hughes Saints were no match for Liverpool who were blazing guns at Anfield.

Notwithstanding, the January transfer window has almost arrived, and one man has remained strongly linked to reunite with Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

Germany international Mario Gotze was strongly linked with a move to join the Red this summer, but that failed to materialise.

However, that has not stopped reports from milling round that a possible move to Anfield is still in sight.

Gotze has endured a distressing and disappointing career at Bayern Munich, since moving to the Allianz Arena from Dortmund in 2013.

After enjoying a glowing career under then Borussia Dortmund’s boss Jurgen Klopp, the German playmaker has struggled to pin down a spot at Bayern Munich.

Hopes of getting back into his game crashed after the player came down with the metabolic disorder myopathy, last year.

Former Dortmund defender Kevin Grosskreutz advised that a move abroad, pointing Liverpool, could help resurrect his Gotze’s career, he told Sky Sports Germany.

“Klopp knows him quite well, he would be a good fit for Liverpool,” he added.

At 26, the German mastermind still has a lot to offer, and perhaps a move to the Premier League could ignite that missing spark of genius that has faded.
