Grosskreutz still keen on ‘dream’ Premier League move

By Maximilian Bensinger

Borussia Dortmund attacker Kevin Grosskreutz has revealed he is still eager to make a “dream” move to the Premier League amidst rumoured interest from Liverpool.

The 24-year-old scored seven goals in 26 league starts last term as Jurgen Klopp’s men lifted the Bundesliga title ahead of Bayern Munich.

But, having seen his first-team action restricted this term due to the form of Jakub Blaszczykowski, Grosskreutz has conceded he is restless at his hometown club.

He told “Of course I’m not happy. Whoever is happy when he doesn’t play is in the wrong business. I’m totally unhappy. I want to play, that’s all that counts for me.”

Recent reports suggest that Liverpool could be set to offer Grosskreutz a January lifeline, but the midfielder remains relaxed about a move he admits he has been eyeing for some time.

“I have one-and-a-half year left. I’m taking it easy. We will see,” he added.

“The dream was there three, four years ago – it was always my dream. But I do have a contract with Borussia Dortmund. Everything’s possible in football but Dortmund are the first club to talk to.”
