Cape Town - Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard believes the top players around the world would jump at the opportunity to work with Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

The German tactician has already made it known that he is eager to get in a few fresh faces as soon as possible in the upcoming transfer period, and Gerrard is convinced he will be able to sign whoever he wants.

“If I’m a top player around Europe and Jürgen picks the phone up and I get offered the chance to play for this club, which is moving forward in every single department and has a world-class manager leading it, I’d be jumping at that opportunity,” Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo.

“I want to play for him and I am 37 next week! For me, it’s such an exciting project. Not just because we qualified for the Champions League but the whole project.

“The next three, four, five, six years, whatever it turns out to be, are going to be very exciting and players will want to be a part of what Jürgen is doing.”
