Ed01 a friend of mine who usually knows his stuff regarding transfers has said we are looking to buy Mario Goetze or bring him in on loan for the rest of the season? have you heard anything similar to this? I know he's a favorite of Klopps and we showed interest before prior to signing Mane. wouldn't mind him tbh, I know he's had his problems but I think Klopp could get him back to his best.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate. Not heard anything about him as a possibility.}

Eds had gotze not have a serious injury and therefore hasn't been the player from 2-3 seasons ago? Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know, I haven't kept track of his career sorry.}

Two years ago he stopped playing football all together because it was discovered he had some sort of muscle disorder and his career nearly ended. Due to privacy laws it was not ever disclosed, but would make no sense in signing a player who may not pass a physical. Everyone forget about the Loic Remy transfer.

I maybe wrong. But wasn't it an issue something similar to what Fletcher had when at utd and by diet etc has been able to keep on top of it? Something to do with the stomach. Be interesting one as his career has stalled since move to Bayern from Dortmund. But I am sure I read somewhere when asked who was most gifted player he had worked with. Klopp answer was Gotze.

Gotze was diagnosed last year with Myopathy (Muscle weakening disease) which has hindered his career so i'd have my doubts.

Tbh, I'm not saying he would be a good signing but it wouldn't be out the blue, regarding the injury he seems to have put it behind him this season and played 14-15 times in all competition he is a winner tho and our team does miss that kind of person scores big game goals, but then I don't think he is what we need.

To be fair, if Gotze quit tomorrow he'll forever be able to remember scoring the winner in the World Cup final. There's a whole career right there.

Given his history, especially with Klopp, a loan with an option to buy would be a perfect scenario, imo. Not risking the whole transfer fee until Klopp can see if he is back to his best. He's played in the CL this season, so would be cup tied unfortunately.

This would also fit with the rumours dribbling out from journos that we are pushing for a name we have been linked to in the past.

Nice theory, CyKlopps, I like it!
