Transfer Update: Liverpool 'want to sign' top-class £37m international; Klopp sent scouts today

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has reportedly sent scouts to watch highly-rated Valencia defender Shkodran Mustafi.

The Liverpool Echo claims that Mustafi is on Klopp's transfer hit-list for the upcoming transfer window, and according SuperDeporte journalist Dani Moreno;

“Liverpool will come this Sunday [today] to watch Mustafi in action. They will negotiate because they want to sign him”.

Some info about Mustafi:

* 24-year old central defender, who can also play as a right back. Current contract expires: 2019.

* 78 apps for Valencia (9 goals/assists). 10 apps for the German national team.

* Jun 2014: Linked with a move to Jurgen Klopp's Borussia Dortmund side.

* Has a £37m buyout clause in his contract.

* Aug 2014: Nicolas Otamendi's assessment: “Mustafi is an excellent centre-back and that’s why he went, played and won the World Cup. Valencia have signed a great centre-back with a bright future and a wealth of experience.”

If Jurgen Klopp tried to sign Mustafi at Dortmund, then Liverpool's interest makes sense, but £37m? No chance, though if Mustafi leaves, he'll almost certainly go for much less than that.

Possible partner for Joel Matip?

Bev is having her bone marrow transplant today (Wed19th April). It's a big operation, and she'll be on life support for the duration. The recovery process is going to be very tough and unfortunately carries a great deal of risk with regards to infection, which could be life threatening due to the process requiring her immune system to have been purposefully wiped out beforehand (so that it doesn't f!ght against/reject the transplant). Sadly, the preparation treatment has adversely affected her heart as well and currently it is beating much lower than it should be so we have to hope that soon starts to recover as well. More HERE.
