After the first round of Euro 2016 games, Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen is deservedly being hailed for his excellent performances for Wales, but according to ex-Red Danny Murphy, one of Jurgen Klopp's former players is taking the Euros by storm.

Speaking to the BBC today, Murphy raved:

"Ivan Perisic has been one of the stars of the tournament for me. His power and running ability is phenomenal".

On Monday, Perisic put in a man-of-the-match performance against Spain, and his winning goal condemned the Spaniards to the first European Championship defeat since 2004.

In April, Liverpool were linked with a €30m move for Perisic, but the 27-year old has negative history with Klopp:

* Perisic spent two years at Dortmund under Klopp (2011-2013)

* Nov 2012: Frustrated by a lack of playing time, Perisic told reporters: "I cannot be pleased with my situation. I don't get a lot of time on the pitch. When I play I score, but when I don't score, I am not an option for the next two or three games".

* When specifically asked about Klopp, Perisic added: "We have no relationship. He is the best coach in Germany right now, the number one, everyone accepts the subordinate role".

* Upon hearing Perisic's comments, Klopp scathed: "Public whining belongs to kindergarten. He [Perisic] should shut his mouth, work hard and make the coach select him – not complain about it to the reporters".

Predictably, Liverpool are are once again being linked with a move for Perisic, but like Henrikh Mkhitaryan - who recently criticised Klopp for restricting his creativity - Perisic's history with Klopp will probably put the stoppers on a move to Anfield.
