Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp seems to be intent on strengthening his squad further still this summer, with the addition of an attack-minded player thought to feature highly on his list of priorities.

The Reds failed in their attempt to bring Lyon's Nabil Fekir to Anfield two weeks ago, and although a move for the Frenchman isn't completely dead, Klopp would be wise to line up some alternative options.

With this in mind, Liverpool should attempt to bring Real Madrid winger James Rodriguez to Merseyside this summer, with Don Balon claiming that the Colombian is already drawing attention from Arsenal and Chelsea.

The 26-year-old is currently spending time away from the Santiago Benrabeu on loan with Bayern, and although the German giants do have the first option of buying him, Don Balon claim that they are reluctant to meet Real Madrid's €45 million (£40 million) valuation of the player.

Rodriguez is one of the most creative, technically gifted attacking players in world football, and he would bring stiff competition to Liverpool's currently untouchable front three.

He can play anywhere along the front-line - a trait that is ideal for Klopp's setup, considering the German's penchant for all of his forward players to continually interchange their positions.

The Colombia international possesses the kind of talent that would make Liverpool fans quickly forget about Nabil Fekir, and for the reported fee of just £40 million, it is surely a no-brainer for the Reds to make a move for him this summer.
