Jurgen Klopp considered making a surprise move to bring Franck Ribery to Liverpool FC this summer, according to a report on France.

French media outlet L’Equipe, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Champions League winner flirted with the idea of signing the 36-year-old to provide cover this summer.

The same article states that the Reds thought that perhaps Ribery could provide cover up front after the departure of Daniel Sturridge and Xherdan Shaqiri’s injury.

According to the same story, Liverpool FC decided against a move for the Bayern Munich legend despite allowing Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino to have an extra break this summer.

Liverpool FC have been quiet in the 2019 summer transfer window after the Reds signed 17-year-old Dutch centre-half Sepp van der Berg from FC Twolle earlier this month.

The Reds confirmed the signing of Fulham’s record-breaking 16-year-old Harvey Elliott over the weekend as Liverpool FC improved their squad with one eye on the future.

Liverpool FC won the Champions League for a sixth time last season after a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the Madrid showpiece thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi.

The Reds finished in second place in the Premier League table and a point adrift of champions Manchester City.
