Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp is being linked with a surprise move for Chelsea outcast Marko Marin.
The German has made little impact at Stamford Bridge since moving there for £7m back in 2012 from Bundesliga side Werder Bremen.
He has made just sixteen appearances for the Premier League champions and has spent most of the last four years out on loan.
Marin has previously spent time with Sevilla, Fiorentina and Anderlecht and is partway through a season long loan with Turkish side Trabzonspor.
Footylatest.com are reporting that Klopp is tempted to bring the twenty-six year old to Anfield this Summer in order to give him the chance to resurrect his flagging career.
Kenny Dalglish tried to sign the midfielder when he was in charge back in 2012, but Marin chose a move to London instead.
The German has won sixteen caps for his national side and is out of contract in the Summer of 2017 and so would be available for a low fee this year.
He has admitted that the past few years have been “difficult” but he is still aiming to make his mark at the top level of the game.
“It’s difficult.” he told Kicker.
“You not only need a few good matches at Trabzon, but a very strong year.” he added.
When asked if he saw a future at Stamford Bridge he said that it seemed unlikely to happen.
“You never know, but right now it does not look like it.” Marin answered.
“My career only starts now. I am in the best age for a footballer.
“I have collected a lot of experience, lived in London, Seville, Florence, Brussels, got to know many new languages and leagues.
“I could have left for the UAE last summer but I want to show my worth in Europe, and I am on a good path.” he finished.
But will that path end up at Anfield?
