Liverpool boss Klopp eager to sign Chukwueze

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is eager to sign Nigerian winger Samuel Chukwueze from Villarreal.

According to Don Balon, Klopp, who is a big admirer of Chukwueze, is preparing for life after the likely departure of Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian could be on his way to Real Madrid or Barcelona next summer.

“Chukwueze has good qualities and can flourish better with more freedom,” the report reads.

The 20-year-old certainly looks like he has a big future in the game, and his club have already tied him down to a contract with a buy-out clause of £86m in it.

Liverpool will have to activate that clause if they want Chukwueze at Anfield.

The 20-year-old has scored 10 goals with five assists in 49 games for Villarreal.
