Liverpool are ready to swoop for Bayern Munich’s unsettled Mario Gotze – but Twitter does not rate the Merseyside giants’ chances.
Gotze, 23, has repeatedly been linked with a move to Anfield since his former Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp took over at Liverpool in October and Sky Sports sent social media into a frenzy on Tuesday by substantiating written reports in England over the last 48 hours.
The attacking midfielder scored the winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final and has four Bundesliga titles to his name and Twitter is sceptical of a player of his calibre choosing to move to Liverpool.
These two below believe that Liverpool are incapable of attracting football’s biggest stars regardless of Klopp’s relationship with Gotze.
Unfortunately for one of them, he does not seem to realise Danny Drinkwater is on the verge of winning a Premier League winners medal with Leicester five points clear at the top of the table.
Despite the pessimism, there are plenty of Liverpool supporters who would love to see the German in a red shirt and are unable to contain their excitement at the prospect of Gotze arriving at Anfield.
This tweet below sums up their reaction to the news.
