Liverpool have joined the race to sign Bayer Leverkusen striker Stefan Kiessling.
talkSPORT revealed earlier this week that Fulham were in the hunt for the 26-year-old but now the player’s agent has revealed that the Merseyside club are also trying to land the forwards signature, as well as a host of other top European clubs.
Speaking in German newspaper Bild, the player’s representative, Ali Bulut, said: “Milan, Liverpool, Schalke 04 and Rubin Kazan have asked for the player in the recent weeks.
“There are no formal offers at the moment. Depending on what Bayer say he could be sold in January.” (talkSPORT)
Liverpool have been linked with a number of strikers over the past few months, and rightly so. The team seem desperate for someone to take the pressure off star forward Fernando Torres. With whatever money Hodgson has available during the January transfer window, a striker is almost certain to be purchased.
Is German star Stefan Kiessling the right man? He has a fantastic scoring record for current club Bayer Leverkusen, and is also more than capable of playing out wide or as a supporting striker when needed to.
Is he the right man to partner Torres?
