Liverpool transfer news: Jurgen Klopp eyes swoop for €25m-rated Bundesliga No.13

LIVERPOOL boss Jurgen Klopp is eyeing a move for Hoffenheim midfielder Kerem Demirbay.

Demirbay was on the losing side as his Hoffenheim side were beaten 6-3 on aggregate by Liverpool in their Champions League play-off.

At the end of Wednesday second leg clash, Demirbay was spotted in an embrace with Klopp on the pitch.

Liverpool have had a difficult transfer window with moves for top targets Naby Keita and Virgil van Dijk failing to materialise.

And with less than a week until the end of the transfer window, Klopp faces a race against time to bolster his squad.

But according to German newspaper Bild, the Reds boss is keeping tabs on the €25m-rated Germany international and the player has been made aware that he is a Liverpool type player.

Klopp knows all about Demirbay after the pair were together at Borussia Dortmund.

And ahead of the play off tie, Klopp praised the 24-year-old saying: “I like Kerem.

“He is a great player with a good development.”

The report says Demirbay is unlikely to join Liverpool this summer but there is an exit clause in his contract.
