Jurgen Klopp has identified Leeds United forward Jack Clarke as a summer transfer target for Liverpool FC, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Express is reporting that the German manager is keen to bring the winger to Anfield this summer as he begins to think about bolstering his squad at the end of the season.

The Reds did not make any new signings in the January transfer window after having splashed the cash in recent years.

Liverpool FC published some very positive financial figures last week and that means that there are likely to be significant funds available in the summer transfer window.

According to the same story, 18-year-old Leeds United starlet is now on Klopp’s radar as a potential recruit for the summer window.

Clarke has scored two goals and made two assists in 16 Championship appearances this season, although he has only started four of those games.

The same story says that Klopp recently sent Liverpool FC scouts to keep tabs on Clarke’s progress.

It is also claimed that Liverpool FC will look to try and sign Clarke even if Leeds United gain promotion to the Premier League in May.
