English Premier League outfit Liverpool will no longer move in for Werder Bremen forward Max Kruse ahead of the new season as manager Jurgen Klopp has been advised against doing such.
The 31-year- old, scored 12 goals and provided 14 assists in 36 appearances for the German Bundesliga outfit during the 2018-19 campaign which caught the attention of the Reds team.
The attempt by Liverpool was motivated by the fact that he would be a free player this summer transfer window and will not cost the team much to secure his service.
Also, Jurgen Klopp is just keen to make his team stronger in the attack than it was in order to beat the competition from Man City for the English Premier League title.
However, the fact that the Merseyside outfit have resolved to work more with Belgium international Divock Origi in the coming season makes them forget about securing the service of Max Kruse.
Meanwhile, the Reds team are reportedly keen on the signing of Sporting Lisbon attacker Bruno Fernandes, who helped Portugal win the UEFA Nations League title at the weekend but they will face competition from Man United.
The Merseyside outfit are believed to be in the market for additions but none is yet to be confirmed.
