Liverpool have been linked with a move for Real Madrid star Marco Asensio, who is struggling for regular playing time at the Bernabeu Stadium.
The 23-year old Spanish international joined Real from Real Mallorca in 2014, but has failed to secure a regular first-team place in the Spanish capital, despite his obvious talent.
Jurgen Klopp who has been relatively quiet in the transfer window so far this summer is keen to improve the depth of his squad, and is concerned that injuries to key personnel like Mo Salah could have an impact on his side’s ability to compete in the coming season.
Asensio has won La Liga once during his time with Real, and the Champions League twice, scoring the fourth goal in their 4 -1 rout of Juventus in the 2017 final in Cardiff.
Having featured for the Spanish nationals side at levels from under-16 upwards, he made his full international debut in 2016 against Switzerland, and has since gone on to play for his country a further 21 times.
