Toni Kroos

The Merseyside club are keen on signing Germany international Toni Kroos, according to reports

Liverpool are reportedly planning a £35million move for the former Bayern Munich man, according to the Daily Express.

Kroos, 25, is understood to be unhappy at the Bernabeu club and could be heading for the exit this summer, with Paris Saint-Germain rumoured to be another possible destination.

The Reds have been linked with a host of midfielders following the exit of club icon Steven Gerrard to LA Galaxy this summer.

Jordan Henderson is widely tipped to become an integral player at the Anfield club as he attempts to fill the huge void left by Gerrard.

However, fans have been reportedly calling out for a marquee signing as a replacement and Kroos would fit the bill.

He joined Real Madrid last summer on a six-year contract almost immediately after winning the 2014 World Cup as Germany beat Argentina 1-0 in the final.

Madrid cool De Gea interest

One of this summer’s biggest transfer sagas has involved Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea as the La Liga giants have been heavily linked with the Spaniard.

However, after United reportedly stated they would only accept a bid of £35million or higher for the 24-year-old, the La Liga giants have settled for signing De Gea next year.

Rafael Benitez’s side are only willing to pay around £25million and have since handed Keylor Navas the no1 jersey ahead of the 2015-16 season.

De Gea’s contract is set to expire next summer meaning the former Atletico Madrid keeper would be available on a free transfer.

The Spaniard is believed to be keen on joining Real and even snubbed a reported £200,000-a-week deal at United to try to force a move through.
