Transfer Update: Klopp still desperate to sign 'unbelievable' £10m sensation. Liverpool offer made already in 2016

Jurgen Klopp is set to reignite his interest in one of Liverpool's previous transfer targets.

Last summer, Liverpool were regularly linked with a move for Leicester City full-back Ben Chilwell, and the time, reports claimed that Anfield was Chilwell's 'preferred destination'.

Liverpool made several offers for Chilwell, but according to Ex-Times journalist Tony Barrett:

"The £10m fee Leicester were seeking for Chilwell went beyond what Klopp thought reasonable and the deal was not done".

Well, despite the fact that Chilwell - who, according to Claudio Ranieri, is 'unbelievable' and 'outstanding' - still has only 4 Premier League appearances to his name, Klopp is back in the race. According to the Daily Express today:

"Klopp has been keeping tabs on Chilwell since last summer and rates him among the finest prospects in the country. Klopp is ready to offer around £10m".

I remain unenthused at the prospect of Alberto Moreno being replaced by a 20-year with barely any experience, but considering the fact Man United paid £28m for Luke Shaw, £10m is a comparatively fair price for an overhyped Brit.

If Chilwell is so 'unbelievable', why is he rarely used by Ranieri? Maybe it's just me, but I don't get the hype over a player who has made just 13 senior appearances.

BEV (LADYLIVERBIRD) UPDATE (From Case)

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.
