Liverpool, Man Utd and Man City are in race to sign £20m-rated starlet Mahmoud Dahoud from Borussia Monchengladbach.
Dahoud, 20, who was born in Syria and has played for Germany Under-21s, is one of the rising stars of German football with his energy and recovery of the ball two of his qualities.
His passing ability, both long and short, also appeals to Klopp, who is looking for someone who can dictate from deep.
Both Manchester clubs, City and United, have followed Dahoud, who is rated at about £20million, while Liverpool know Thursday’s Europa League opponents, Borussia Dortmund, are interested in the player.
Dahoud shares the same agent as Liverpool duo Emre Can and Samed Yesil, who is on loan at Swiss side FC Luzern.
As well as Dahoud Klopp is also interested in Udinese’s Poland midfielder Piotr Zielinski, who has spent the season on loan at Empoli.
