Football Direct News claim that the Merseyside club are keen on luring 26 year old German international Marcel Schmelzer to help boost their options at left-back.
Schmelzer is into his sixth season in the Westfalenstadion first team set-up and may feel his side are moving backwards with the gap between themselves and domestic rivals Bayern Munich growing ever wider, an issue that will not have been helped by the fact that star striker Robert Lewandowski has agreed to move to the Allianz Arena this summer.
Spaniard Jose Enrique has been out injured for much of the current campaign and though John Flanagan has acquitted himself well in the role Rodgers is keen to bring in a more experienced option.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is also ready to make a fresh move for long term target Henrikh Mkhitaryan according to Football Direct News.
The Armenian midfielder was high up on the Anfield wish-list prior to his move to Borussia Dortmund last summer and could, according to this source, be ready to consider a move away from the Bundesliga side this summer.
The 25 year old has been very effective since his move to Germany, racking up ten goals and nine assists, though Jurgen Klopp’s side have now fallen way behind domestic rivals Bayern Munich and a move to table topping Premier League side Liverpool may now prove more tempting for the former Shakhtar Donetsk man.
Rodgers may see Mkhitaryan as a long term replacement for Steven Gerrard. Whilst the Liverpool skipper has been in fine form this term at the age of 33 it’s fair to say the England man is in the latter stages of his distinguished career.
