Jurgen Klopp speaks on £50m player Liverpool reportedly want to sign

Jurgen Klopp highlighted Joao Palhinha’s importance for Fulham amid reports that Liverpool are interested in signing the 27-year-old midfielder.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the Reds’ manager noted how Palhinha controls and organises the midfield for Marco Silva’s side, with the Portuguese international one of the best players on the pitch last night as Liverpool fans were impressed with what they saw from the Fulham star.

Klopp said on the former Sporting Lisbon star’s role for the Cottagers last night: “You could see in the beginning, defending the centre against Fulham is really important because Palhinha is there and that is their connector, get [him] on the ball.”

As reported by the Daily Mail, Palhinha is wanted by Liverpool and could be a prime midfield target for the Anfield side as Klopp looks to overhaul his squad in what could be an incredibly busy summer for the Reds, and the Fulham man’s performance last night certainly raised some eyebrows.

Indeed, with a reported asking price of £50m, Palhinha could be an expensive option for Liverpool. However, given the midfielder’s performance last night and his record-breaking tackle numbers, the 27-year-old could be exactly what the Reds need this summer.

In a game of few chances and incidents, it is only natural that a midfielder was the one to steal the headlines, and Klopp’s words on Palhinha seem to indicate that the Liverpool manager is a fan of the Fulham dynamo, who was once again at his imperious best.

The Portuguese international has been one of the players of the season and is now rightly being linked with a big move to a European club, and for Liverpool, Klopp’s comments last night could be a hint that the German is ready to swoop for the Fulham star this summer.
