Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was in attendance at Argentina’s Copa America clash against Chile and was standing next to Higuain’s brother and agent.
It may just be coincidence but in football there is rarely a chance happening with as many variables as this encounter.
First of all, why else would Klopp have been in that stadium on his holiday if not to check out the Argentinian forward ahead of what could be a truly impressive deal for Liverpool.
Secondly, how could it be that he just happened to be stood next to the player’s agent – who is also his brother.
Thirdly, and perhaps most intriguingly, Klopp left the game in the 76th minute – just two minutes after Higuain was subbed off.
There is no doubting that Napoli’s recording breaking forward is talented and he would certainly bring class to Liverpool, but there is one issue. Aside from whether he’d actually be willing to move to Liverpool, is he capable of leading the line in Klopp’s high pressing style?
If Klopp was truly at Argentina’s game to scout Higuain or discuss a deal with his agent then it must be that he believes that the record Serie A top goalscorer can do a job for him. Higuain would take Liverpool to the level that they have slipped from since Luis Suarez left for Barcelona in 2014.
