Klopp to Sign? Liverpool want 'fantastic' €25m Chelsea reject who's told friends he wants transfer this summer

It wouldn't be transfer season without endless links to Southampton players, and Ryan Bertrand is the latest Saints name to re-enter the fray.

Liverpool were regularly linked with Bertrand during Brendan Rodgers' reign, and according to The Mirror over the weekend:

"Chelsea and Liverpool are both watching developments on England left-back Bertrand, who is ready to leave St Mary's. The 27-year-old has [told] team-mates that he thinks he will be on his way".

When asked recently about his future, Bertrand claimed he's 'happy' at Southampton, but added:

"It’s nice to get that recognition, and I suppose that will come if you play consistently in the Premier League and internationally. I learnt a long time ago not to get carried away with anything.”

Some info about Bertrand:

* Left-back. Contract expires: 2021

* Southampton: 104 apps (20 goals/assists)

* Injuries: Missed 17 games since 2013 (3x knee injuries; 1x hamstring)

* Dec 2016: Jamie Carragher selected Bertrand in his 'team of the season'.

* Nov 2016: Jamie Redknapp insisted: "Ryan Bertrand made a great move. He wasn’t getting a game at Chelsea. He looks a fantastic left-back".

* May 2017: BBC pundit Garth Crooks enthused: "Should Liverpool qualify for Champions League, I seriously suggest Jurgen Klopp pays whatever it takes to take Bertrand to Anfield. The player is in that class".

Last week, James Milner admitted that he's 'frustrated' at left-back, so now is the time to bring in a dedicated full-back to take over.

In my view, €25m-rated Bertrand fits the profile of the type of player Liverpool should try and sign this summer (experienced, consistent, mid-to-late 20s; entering prime years etc), but are Liverpool really going to raid Southampton *again*?

Plus, is Bertrand really much better than Nathaniel Clyne? Both are solid performers, but Clyne's suspect decision-making/game intelligence in the final third is often frustrating, and the same complaint can be levelled at Bertrand. Indeed, the defender's crossing accuracy this season (13%) is even worse than Clyne's, and that's saying something (!)
