Liverpool’s recruitment team are keen on both Tottenham attacker Son Heung-min and Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford but it is unlikely either player will sign for Jurgen Klopp.
Klopp’s side having spent very little over the past two seasons, could have a large amount of cash available to make a big splash in the market.
The Reds meanwhile opted against any marquee signings before the start of the season with Adrian their only first-team acquisition as back-up to Alisson.
Takumi Minamino was their only January signing after meeting Red Bull Salzburg’s £7.25m release clause.
But GoalBall learnt that Liverpool could be about to spend big at the end of the season to try and maintain their position at the top of English football.
And according to the Independent, the Reds hold a vested interest in Tottenham attacker Son and United forward Rashford.
It is stated the recruitment team and Klopp, in particular, are big admirers of the Premier League duo.
But the report goes on to state that a move for either player is extremely doubtful as neither is likely to be made available to the Reds.
Recently, the Liverpool boss suggested the club may once again go without signing any marquee player this summer if nobody is available.
“It is not easy but is it possible? We don’t know exactly,” he said.
“We just prepare potential situations – that’s how it is.’’
