Pascal Gross has told Goal that he is honoured by links to Liverpool but confirms that the Reds are yet to make a formal approach to sign him.
This week, speaking to Goal, the Brighton midfielder said: “Of course it is an honour when such rumours arise, but I have not heard anything concrete.”
Gross has been an absolute revelation playing under Chris Hughton and it’s clear to see why Liverpool might hold an interest in him.
The German has brilliant technique when it comes to delivering the ball into the box and is a free kick specialist.
While Trent Alexander-Arnold is talented in dead ball situations and Xherdan Shaqiri is able to find the back of the net from a free kick, beyond those two Liverpool are shorthanded in this department.
At 27 years of age, he would be a fantastic player to sign but aside from the report from the Mirror in December, there has been little to link the assist king with a move to Liverpool.
Gross would be hugely welcome and despite playing for Brighton, he was able to record seven goals and eight assists in 38 games – more than any Liverpool midfielder has this season.
He would be a bargain at £15million.
