Liverpool fans listening to some Beatles classics at the jukebox are delighted to hear that Jurgen Klopp has identified a high-profile starlet as his number one target for the January transfer window.
Reports cited in The Liverpool Echo claim that Klopp wants highly-rated Ajax star Anwar El Ghazi at Anfield, after seeing the 20-year-old recently earn a call-up to the Netherlands national team.
El Ghazi currently leads the way in the Eredivisie with eight goals so far this term and is touted as the next big-thing to emerge from Ajax’s famed academy; with hopes that he can emulate the likes of Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Kluivert to become an icon in Europe.
Klopp may find it difficult bringing El Ghazi to the Premier League though, as Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid are also keeping tabs whilst Ajax themselves are insistent they will not sell.
With Liverpool struggling for firepower this term, El Ghazi’s goal impact from the wide positions could prove valuable- especially after losing Raheem Sterling in the summer.
Our Liverpool regulars don’t know much about the young Dutch talent but say they trust Klopp’s judgement, with his success stories from Borussia Dortmund including Marcel Schmelzer and Mats Hummels.
