Liverpool plotting shock summer move for Chelsea midfielder, Jurgen Klopp is a fan
| Last updated
Jurgen Klopp has identified Chelsea midfielder Connor Gallagher as his latest transfer target this summer, according to reports.
Liverpool have endured a poor campaign after being dumped from all three cup competitions.
As a result, Klopp is keen to strengthen his squad in the summer, and in particular his midfield.
The latest name on the German's shopping list is said to be Gallagher, with the Reds boss allegedly keen on bringing him to Anfield.
Gallagher to Liverpool?
The Independent's Miguel Delaney has claimed that Gallagher is 'high up' on Liverpool's list for midfield reinforcements.
Klopp is eyeing a major overhaul this summer, as he seeks to freshen up his ageing midfield.
Meanwhile, the report states that Gallagher has 'exactly the kind of energy and attributes' that could take Liverpool to another level next season.
Indeed, Graham Potter may be required to offload players in order to comply with Financial Fair Play rules.
It is thought that Chelsea will listen to offers for Gallagher, although the 23-year-old is allegedly seen as a valuable member of the squad.
However, the report suggests Liverpool's style of play may suit the England international better, who is out of contract in 2025.
Liverpool have also been heavily linked with a move for fellow Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount, with the 24-year-old unhappy with his wage compared to other senior players at the club.
With only one year left on his deal, Mount may seek to move on to pastures new, and Merseyside has emerged as his most likely destination.
Although Chelsea will reportedly demand up to £70m for the player and it remains to be seen whether any club will be willing to meet their asking price.
