Liverpool are heavily linked in a transfer talk with a in-demand teen sensation Ipswich Town –Andre Dozzell (Arsenal target too). Jurgen Klopp is in search of young talents and has made his scouts very busy in exploring teenage stars across leagues. In a recent update, the manager is said to have talks with the midfielder Andre Dozzell. Klopp is not only looking to sign big names who can play in the starting 11 but he is also looking for young talents who can be a part of his mission to transform Liverpool into title contenders for coming seasons.
Who is Andre Dozzell?
Andre Dozzell is the skipper of the under 17 England side and is the son of the former Ipswich legend Jason Dozzell. The teen sensation is having a tremendous season with Ipswich town and has gathered the attention of some of the biggest clubs of the premiere league. The player is also known to share the same agent as Gareth Bale. Liverpool were in competition with Arsenal, Tottenham and West Ham to sign the talented midfielder and they have taken a leap in terms of the negotiations. The club has valued the player at £1.5mn and Liverpool have agreed to pay the sum to get their hands on the midfielder.
The Reds were given a tough competition by other major clubs from the premiere league. Arsene Wenger was believed to have had talks with the agent of Dozzell. Tottenham and West Ham were the other big clubs who had approached the player. Since all these clubs have had a very good season, Dozzell might be equally excited to play for any of the clubs.
Jurgen Klopp is looking for a revival in his side and for that he is known to make a lot of changes in the personnel. His vision is to see Liverpool as title contenders and he has also given himself a target to four years to achieve that dream. The manager is well aware of the current scenario and thus is in the look-out of fresh talents who can fit in his style of play and be a part of his mission. With this in mind, Klopp has been busy scouting a lot of young players from different leagues and Dozzell is one of them. The England-under 17 skipper has proved his abilities at Ipswich and Klopp is getting closer to acquire the player.
