Liverpool, who now seem to be out of the Premier League title race this season are trying their best to gather as many points as possible in the days to come and secure a Champions League spot. Antonio Conte’s side seem to be enjoying at the top of the points table, with Chelsea once again dominating the league, after Leicester City’s historic win last term.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has tried his best to deliver results and challenge for the top flight of English football, though his side have always lacked the consistency required to be champions.

Further, a report now states that the Merseyside club have a new defensive target on their minds, as the former Borussia Dortmund manager looks to add more options at the back.

It has been claimed that 25 year old Brazilian star Danilo is the target for the Kop boss with the English giants ready to pay €25m (£21m-£22m), as he looks unsettled at Real Madrid currently.

Calcio Mercato have added that the Reds are eager to sign the right-back, who would strengthen their defensive line under Klopp and might help bring some more silverware to Anfield.

After failing to secure a place in the starting eleven at the Bernabeu, under Zinedine Zidane, a move away from Los Blancos seems to be on the cards and could be a smart move to make.

The ex Porto man could directly start for Liverpool’s first team, if the move does go through this summer, with England international Nathaniel Clyne being a rather disappointment in recent times.
