Jurgen Klopp has been one of the busiest managers in the Premier League this summer.

He has made a number of additions to his squad already and is also set to let a number of stars leave the club in the coming days.

However, one position that the manager is still to strengthen is the left-back area. Alberto Moreno, the first choice in that position in the squad at the moment has been criticised for the lack of defensive discipline and the fans want an experienced defender who can improve the back-line going into the next season.

The club was linked with a  move for German international Jonas Hector but it now looks like the move will not happen this summer and the club is now looking to sign a player from Leicester City, the Champions of England.

Ben-Chilwell

Ben Chilwell, who has been at Huddersfield last season was at the top of his game and has attracted interests from a lot of clubs in the Premier League.

At just 21-years, Chilwell is tipped off as the next best player in his position in the country and he has proven himself in the previous season.

The Merseyside club has been linked with a move for him over the last couple of weeks but news broke out that Liverpool may be missing out on his this summer after Leicester City decided to table a new contract for the player this summer.

However, Klopp is naturally desperate for a left-back especially after he let Brad Smith leave to AFC Bournemouth recently and has identified Chilwell as a top priority.

Earlier, it was revealed that the Reds were rejected in a £10million bid for the player but it is now understood that Liverpool are readying a deal that will be a final offer for the youngster.

The Sun reported that Liverpool are readying a £8million bid in their last resort to snatching the player this summer.

Leicester City wants to sign him on a 5-year deal but Liverpool wants to lure him to Anfield this summer.

The 21-year old was a part of the Leicester City squad that played against Celtic in a friendly match this weekend and will complete a deal with either club by the end of the week.

It will be interesting to see how this story transpires in the coming days.
