According to reports, Liverpool has decided not to sign the Werder Bremen striker Max Kruse this summer, as reported by Dailystar
That’s mainly because Jurgen Klopp is very much impressed with Divock Origi’s current form and doesn’t want to block the pathway for Rhian Brewster at Anfield.
Though the German international would be available on a free transfer, the Reds manager has not shown his interest in the 31-year-old forward.
And it seems that Klopp will maintain his faith on a young and talented player like Brewster rather than signing an ageing star.
However, Liverpool is still on a lookout for a forward who can act as a potential backup for Salah, Firminho and Mane in the Lineup as Sturridge is set to depart the club with his contract expiring in the next month.
Meanwhile, the in-form Origi is into his final 12 months, and Klopp has high hopes that he will renew his terms at the club.
It seems that Klopp is not willing to go for Kruse who was on Liverpool’s shortlist of players after his exceptional performance in Bundesliga as he chipped in 11 times in 32 games and also provided ten assists.
The Red’s boss may have plans to promote Brewster for a senior role in the Liverpool lineup as he was one of the star players of the England U- 17 team which won the World Cup in 2017.
