Pascal Gross has emerged as a reported Liverpool January transfer target (Picture: Getty)Liverpool are considering a £15million January bid for Brighton playmaker Pascal Gross, according to reports.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are currently top of the table following an unbeaten start to their campaign and are two points clear of Manchester City after the champions tasted defeat for the first time this season at Chelsea on Saturday.
Despite their impressive form, Klopp has been forced to field questions in recent weeks about the composition of his midfield, amid suggestions the likes of James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum do not offer enough creativity.
Gross enjoyed a spectacular debut Premier League campaign with Brighton, registering eight assists and scoring seven goals as Chris Hughton’s side comfortably avoided relegation.
The former Ingolstadt playmaker has found the going tougher this time around and suffered an injury in September which ruled him out for six weeks.
He is yet to return to the form he regularly displayed last term at the Falmer Stadium which drew plaudits from Klopp nearly 12 months ago.

‘He has a nice right foot, is good at set-pieces and a nice shooter. He is a smart player and I like him.’
