Kevin Grosskreutz believes that Mario Gotze should consider a move to Liverpool FC in the January transfer window.

The 26-year-old has struggled with both form and fitness issues over the last few seasons and he has made just two first team appearances for Borussia Dortmund so far this term.

Gotze played under Liverpool FC boss Jurgen Klopp during his first spell at Dortmund and he has been touted as a possible target for the Reds in the last few months.

It remains to be seen whether there is any truth to the rumours or not, but former Borussia Dortmund defender Grosskreutz seems to think that Gotze would be a good fit for the Reds.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Grosskreutz said: “I’m very sorry for Mario Gotze at the moment, because stuff is written about him – and only him – every day.

“In Brugge, for example, the whole team didn’t play well.

“Maybe it would be good for him to go abroad in the winter to find a bit more peace and bring his career back on track. Klopp knows him quite well, he would be a good fit for Liverpool.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool FC are preparing to welcome Chelsea FC to Anfield in the third round of the League Cup on Wednesday night.

The Reds have made a brilliant start to the new campaign, with Klopp’s men having won all six of their opening Premier League games to leave them flying high at the top of the table.

Liverpool FC will then take on Chelsea FC in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge next weekend as they look to keep their place at the top of the table.
