According to a report in Tuttomercatoweb, Liverpool have held talks with super-agent Mino Raiola over the possibility of signing duo Gianluigi Donnarumma and Justin Kluivert this summer.
The Italian editorial claim Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is after a confident goalkeeper who can occupy the role for several years while Ajax wonderkid Kluivert was also among the discussion.
Liverpool have had problems in the goalkeeping department for a number of seasons now as both Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius have both flattered to deceive and struggled for consistency.
AC Milan ace Donnarumma is widely regarded as one of the best young prospects in world football and a potential future Italian great, following in the footsteps of the retiring Gianluigi Buffon.
A report in March claimed Paris Saint-Germain had already opened talks over a potential £44 million move, yet Milan are said to want the bidding to start at 70 million euros [£61m] for his signature.
Donnarumma would be a brilliant addition for Liverpool, but he isn’t the only top prospect the Reds are seemingly after, as it appears Klopp is also keen on bringing in the highly coveted Ajax ace Kluivert.
Son of former Dutch and Barcelona great Patrick Kluivert, the pacey winger has been in superb form for Eredivisie title challengers Ajax this season as he has notched 10 goals and added a further five assists.
Similar to Bayern Munich superstar Arjen Robben, the 19-year-old wonderkid is the sort of wide forward who loves to cut in and cause mayhem for the opposition defenders.
Liverpool boast arguably the most frightening front three in Europe with Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, yet Klopp will want to reinforce that area and who better than one of Europe’s top prospects.
The Reds are set to contest the Champions League final against Real Madrid within the next fortnight and whatever happens in Kiev, Jurgen Klopp’s men are once again among Europe’s elite making them such an attractive propostion for potential new signings.
