Jurgen Klopp on verge of first Liverpool signing as deal is agreed

Posted by

Liverpool have reportedly agreed on personal terms with Galatasaray winger Kevin Grosskreutz according to reports in Turkey.

Turkish newspaper Takvim, as reported by The Liverpool Echo, has claimed that a deal has been struck between the two parties with a view of the German international moving to Anfield in the January transfer window.

The 27-year-old played under Klopp in a successful stint at Dortmund, and his versatility could be particularly useful to the German tactician as he is able to play on either flank and has previously operated as a full back too.

While the pair won successive Bundesliga titles together in 2011 and 2012, Grosskreutz has failed to play for Galatasaray since joining the Turkish giants after they failed to complete the relevant documents before the transfer deadline.

As a result, he has been banned from playing until January, but the reports claim that he has been left unhappy with the way in which the club has handled the situation and is considering his options elsewhere.

It is understood that the deal is worth around £1.8m and could be announced within 10 days, according to The Echo, but it remains to be seen whether or not an agreement can be reached between the two clubs on a fee.
