Liverpool are monitoring Galatasaray midfielder Kevin Grosskreutz ahead of a potential January swoop, according to the Sunday People.

The Reds are expected to be active in the January transfer window, with new boss Jurgen Klopp likely to try and put his stamp on his new team.

The 27-year-old midfielder played under Klopp during his time in charge at Borussia Dortmund but has struggled for game time since leaving to join Galatasaray. He's yet to play a league game for the Turkish club having been frozen out because his paperwork wasn't registered in time over the summer, and an exit in the new year is likely.

The Sunday People say Klopp has identified the German midfielder, who can also fill in at numerous other positions, in order to bolster his squad.

So far Liverpool have performed well under Klopp, however the former Mainz boss is keen on adding options to his squad over the winter ahead of a push for a top four finish and potentially even a title push.

Grosskreutz joined Galatasaray for a fee of £1.5 million so a move by Liverpool wouldn't break the bank, while his wages would fit in with the club's current structure.

The Reds go up against Newcastle later this afternoon as they look to close the gap on the top. Manchester United, Tottenham and Manchester City all dropped points yesterday, which means Liverpool can close the gap to just three points with a win against the Magpies.

Who do you think Liverpool should try and sign in the January window?
