Liverpool close to signing star Real Madrid mid-fielder in a shocking transfer

Aakarsh / 01 January 2016

The January transfer window is almost open and there are a number of inevitable rumors that will surround the back page of many a newspaper. The Premier League always attracts some top class talent and the latest star to be linked with a move to the EPL is Real Madrid mid-fielder Toni Kroos.

Liverpool who look a different side under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp can now attract some world class players and the manager reportedly is eyeing a move for the World Cup winning mid-fielder Toni Kroos.

Toni Kroos who was a superb player in Bayern Munich moved to the Los Blancos for a different challenge. He cost Madrid £24 million after his heroics in the World Cup that was played in Brazil.

Kroos is a natural technician who has the ability to control the tempo of the game in the mid-field. He has not been able to cement his place in the Real Madrid mid-field and is understood to be keen on a move away from the Bernabeau.


Kroos is one of the many star players in the Madrid team that have fallen out and are on the verge of an exit from the club. Rafa Benitez whose job at the helm of the most prestigious club in Europe is under close scrutiny has not fared badly as his club trail league leaders Barcelona by just two points.

Klopp is understood to be an admirer of the mid-fielder in his time at Bayern and is reportedly keen on closing a deal in the January transfer window.

The arrival of Kroos, if happens will add a lot of pedigree to the already packed mid-field of the club. But in the absence of club legend Steven Gerrard and the injury plagued campaign of Jordan Henderson, the German mid-fielder can add craft and industry to the mid-field area.

Manchester United were scouting the 25-year old before his move to Madrid and if the Merseyside club can snatch him up, it will be a sweet victory for the Reds.
