There is no doubting that Saturday’s Champions League final showdown will be the most important date on the calendar for Jürgen Klopp in the foreseeable future but with next season impossible to ignore, the German will also have his transfer targets in mind.

No matter the result in Kiev, Klopp and his sporting director Michael Edwards will already have a good idea of who they want to target this summer.

Widespread reports indicate that Nabil Fekir is Liverpool’s priority transfer target and that the Frenchman is being targeted to replace Philippe Coutinho, who joined Barcelona in January.

Under a manager like Klopp, the Lyon captain can develope even further and become one of the best players in Europe in the next few years.
