Liverpool are in the hunt to sign Paris St Germain midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak, according to The Sun.

The national newspaper state that Jurgen Klopp is keen to bring the 28-year-old defensive midfielder to Anfield in order to cover with the loss of Emre Can who left to join Juventus this summer.

The Sun report that Krychowiak, who featured for Poland at the World Cup, doesn’t want to return to PSG in order to spend most of his weekends on the bench but that it’s not yet known how he fits into new manager Thomas Tuchel’s plans.

OPINION

The Sun suggest that the midfielder could leave PSG due to a lack of opportunities but in the same breath claim that Klopp is only looking to sign Krychowiak in order to add depth to his squad. This means it’s hard to see the 28-year-old who spent last season on loan in the Premier League with West Bromwich Albion making the jump to Anfield anytime soon. If Krychowiak doesn’t want to be stuck on the bench for his 2018/19 campaign after regularly featuring for WBA in England’s top-flight during his 2017/18 campaign then the Reds aren’t the club he should join. The defensive midfielder may have impressed some people during his three appearances for Poland in the World Cup but he will struggle to get a kick of the ball with Fabinho and Naby Keita in the Reds’ squad. According to the Sun’s report Lokomotiv Moscow are also keen on signing Krychowiak this summer and it’s likely that the Russia side will give him way more first-team chances than the Reds would.
