Liverpool are plotting a summer move for Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos and are prepared to offer the veteran midfielder a three-year contract, according to reports in Spain.
The 32-year-old’s current deal at the Bernabeu expires in the summer of 2023 and Madrid president Florentino Perez has no plans to offer him a contract extension.
According to Spanish newspaper El Nacional, Madrid may look to sell the former Germany international at the end of the season.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is said to be a fan of the midfielder, who has scored 25 goals and provided 83 assists in 340 appearances for Madrid since joining from Bayern Munich in 2014.
The Reds are said to be ‘very serious’ about a move for Kroos and would be willing to pay around €30m (£25m) for the midfielder.
Liverpool are reportedly prepared to offer the 2014 World Cup winner a three-year contract at Anfield.
Madrid are said to be willing to allow Kroos to leave as he is ‘blocking the progression’ of younger midfielders, including Fede Valverde and Eduardo Camavinga.
Despite the reports linking Kroos with a move away from Madrid, the German could end up retiring at the Bernabeu – according to his agent.
“I think that Toni will end his career at Real Madrid,” Volker Strooth told German journalist Florian Plettenburg.
“He hasn’t told me in any phone call that he would like to leave.
"He and his family are very happy in Madrid.”
