Reports indicate that with Manchester United winger Anthony Martial’s contract set to expire in the summer, Liverpool are interested in poaching the Frenchman from their biggest rival.

Despite securing 20 points from a possible 24, Klopp’s side is not firing on all cylinders this season and many are worried about the form of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

More creativity is needed in the middle of the park and Graeme Souness believes that the interest shown in Nabil Fekir in the summer proves that Klopp is after more in midfield and that he will move again for a creative playmaker.

However, there is the potential for Klopp to steal Anthony Martial from Manchester United in the summer as his deal with the Red Devils slowly comes to an end, opening the door for a potential swoop from Liverpool.

The Express published in their newspaper on Tuesday that Liverpool are keen to snatch the 22-year-old from Manchester United. Regardless of the talent that is available to Klopp in attacking areas, any chance to sign someone as talented as Martial cannot go begging.

Even if you ignore his incredible potential, what cannot be swept aside is the anger that would emanate from United supporters if Michael Edwards was able to secure a deal for the Frenchman.

Klopp could play Martial in his favoured left wing position and deploy Sadio Mane deeper as a number 10 as he has done before. A front four of Martial, Salah, Mane and Firmino would destroy defences across the continent.
