According to The Mirror, Napoli hitman Gonzalo Higuain is interested in a summer switch to Liverpool - despite the Reds having no European football next season.

Higuain, 28, left Real Madrid for Napoli in the summer of 2013, joining the Italian side as a replacement for their star striker Edinson Cavani.

With 53 goals in his first two seasons for Napoli, Higuain cemented himself as one of the game's very few world-class strikers, and that was before his record-breaking campaign this past season.

Higuain smashed an astonishing 36 goals in 35 Serie A appearances, breaking the record or most goals in a Serie A season; a record which had stood for 66 years before Higuain's incredible season.

Now though, The Mirror report that Higuain is keen to leave Napoli this summer, and is interested in a move to Liverpool, despite them having no European football for next season.

It's claimed that Higuain fancies a move to the Premier League, and is particularly keen to work with Liverpool's popular manager Jurgen Klopp.

Landing a truly world-class striker would be a huge move for the Reds, and fans would love to see Higauin arrive, but whether Liverpool have the funds to tempt Napoli into a deal remains to be seen, and manager Klopp may have to sell the likes of Christian Benteke and even Daniel Sturridge to make a move for Higuain.
