Liverpool’s hopes of sealing the signature of a highly-coveted talent have been given a major boost today, after the player himself dropped a major hint.
‘I don’t know if my playing style would suit the Premier League, and I haven’t thought about my future yet. As I said, it’s my agent who deals with these topics. Regardless of my personal situation, Klopp is one of the best managers around and it would certainly be an honour to work with him.’
Liverpool are said to be preparing a bid of around £11.9m for the young talent, who’s excelled on-loan at Empoli this season, and he could become Klopp’s third permanent signing for the summer, following Marko Grujic, who was secured in January but returned to Red Star Belgrade on-loan, and Schalke defender Joel Matip, who is a free agent in the summer.
