Liverpool are the Premier League’s most attractive club for Bundesliga players, according to a study conducted by German sports magazine Kicker (via Daily Star).
In a survey carried out among 235 players from the German’s first football tier 9.8 percent named the Reds as the club they would most like to play for. Jurgen Klopp’s squad beat Arsenal and Manchester United by a fairly comfortable margin, as the Gunners received 6 per cent of the votes and the Red Devils 5.1 per cent.
Only European giants Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich scored higher than Liverpool across the continent, as the Klopp effect seems to have picked up steam after a great finish to the season by the Anfield club.
The Reds already lured in two Bundesliga stars for next season. On Tuesday, Liverpool announced the signing of Loris Karius. The 22-year-old German goalkeeper joined the Reds from Bundesliga club Mainz 05 in a £4.7 million deal and joined Schalke 04’s Joel Matip as a new arrival at Anfield. The 24-year-old defensive midfielder agreed to join Liverpool in February when his contract expires this summer.
