Liverpool join transfer race for Ajax midfielder David Neres as Klopp looks to add attacking options

While the likes of Matthijs De Ligt and Frenkie de Jong have earned huge money moves across Europe, Neres' progress has gone under the radar.

But according to the Liverpool Echo, it's the Brazilian's turn to make a bigger impact and Jurgen Klopp wants to bring him to the European champions.

The winger scored eight and assisted eight in the league last season on the back of a campaign where he bagged 14 in the Eredivisie.

Klopp made no major signings this summer and knows he has cash to spend when the January transfer market opens.

He will refrain from spending the money needlessly at the risk of damaging the squad harmony among the group but wants to refine his attack.

Apart from his current front three of Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane, Klopp believes his backup players are short of quality.

Adam Lallana and Xherdan Shaqiri are barely getting a look in while Divock Origi is not up to the high levels required on a consistent basis.

Both Manchester United and Arsenal have been linked with Neres in the past and Ajax would demand around £70million for his signature.
