JURGEN KLOPP has praised Ajax striker Kasper Dolberg, who has recently been linked with a move to the Premier League.
Dolberg has attracted interest from Manchester United for his performances with Ajax this season.
The 19-year-old has scored 10 goals in 22 league appearances for the Dutch club so far this campaign.
His performances led to a call-up to the senior Denmark national squad in November where he made his debut in a World Cup qualifying match against Kazakhstan.
Jurgen Klopp’s former club Borussia Dortmund were also reportedly monitoring Dolberg’s situation at Ajax during the January transfer window.
And the Liverpool boss was in Copenhagen on Monday where he was inevitably asked about Dolberg.
“Who doesn’t know Kasper Dolberg?” Klopp told Danish outlet Ekstra Bladet.
“You can not play in Ajax, without being noticed it. Kasper Dolberg has a very great future. He is a fantastic player.
“I love the Danish players. I had Leon Andreasen in Mainz. He was a monster. I also have fond memories of Bo Svensson and Mohamed Zidan, he is probably half Danish, because he is married to a Dane…
“I really like Danish players. They have a good attitude and a strong mentality.”
