Klopp wants more attacking options as he moves to the Bundesliga after Wijnaldum

It has been a good start to the day for the Liverpool fans as the club is close to announcing yet another signing in Georginio Wijnaldum from Newcastle United.

But it does not look like the manager is done yet with signing attacking options for the next season as he is once again linked with a move for a Bundesliga star this summer.

FC Schalke’s 20-year old attacker Max Meyer is reportedly on the radar of the Anfield outfit for a potential move this summer.

A diminutive, versatile and hard-working midfielder, Meyer is not the player who is expected to sign for Klopp this summer especially with the amount of talent and personnel they have in an attacking midfield position.

But German newspaper Bild has revealed that Jurgen Klopp has now made an enquiry for the German international who is without doubt one of the rising stars in the country at the moment.

It was also revealed that he would cost around £25M and it is hard to see why the Liverpool manager would want to spend on more attacking talent this summer.

The likes of Phillipe Coutinho, Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino, Georginio Wijnaldum  and James Milner are already holding a similar kind of position for the Reds and it is unclear where Meyer fits in this squad.

Having made 32 top-flight appearances last term at his tender age, Meyer scored 5 goals and provided 8 assists and established himself as a star player for the Bundesliga outfit who finished 5th in the previous season.

Meyer at his age needs some regular football under his belt and at the moment, playing for Schalke in the Bundesliga in his home country is the best way to improve for the 20-year old.

He is a player who will suit Klopp’s style of play and can even go on to help the Reds to a trophy next season but for his own growth, this is not the right time to make a move to England.

Liverpool are not even in Europe reducing the number of games drastically from the previous season leaving the 20-year old with hardly any chance of starting regularly for a side fighting for a top-4 finish.

Do you think Max Meyer will move to Liverpool this summer?
