Liverpool will look to strengthen their title bid this season by snapping one of their targets from last summer, with scouts being sent to watch their prospect's upcoming game at Old Trafford.

Arnaut Danjuma, who plays for Villareal, is indeed still a huge target for Jurgen Klopp – and the German coach is reportedly keen to bring the 24-year-old to Anfield.

Danjuma enjoyed a great season with Bournemouth in the Championship last campaign. His displays earned him a move to the reigning Europa League champions in what was €23.5million deal.

Now there’s further interest in the player, according to a report from the Netherlands, as Voetbal International suggests that Liverpool scouts will be firmly keeping their eye on the youngster when he plays at Old Trafford in the Champions League for Villareal on Wednesday night.

The publication says that the player is seen ‘as a possible successor’ to Sádio Mané.

Liverpool – who at the time of writing are beating Porto 3-0 – have been criticised for not spending during the transfer window, but Klopp has brushed off such concern.

Speaking via the Guardian earlier the month, he said: “We thought it made sense that we sign up our squad that we have,” Klopp said. “That is not as spectacular as all the rest around. I cannot change that because you cannot do transfer business just to be in a circus.”

“My problem is obviously my English because from time to time I annoy some other managers and I don’t want to annoy them,” he said.

“I’m not interested in it. I say something, I think it’s right and then two days later I hear the response from somebody and think: ‘Why is he on his toes?’ But, honestly, I couldn’t care less what other clubs are doing.”

"For the record, United’s interest in Ronaldo came as no shock. “I’m not surprised that they do it, I was surprised that Cristiano left Juve, I didn’t know that would happen. Clubs do business.”

Liverpool failed to beat Brentford in their last Premier League encounter, the game ending 3-3.

However, they do remain top of the table – having played six games and earning 14 points.
