Klopp's Top Target: Liverpool tried to sign 'absolutely unique' £34m midfield sensation. Better than Can?

Based on the ceaseless transfer rumours, Liverpool are seemingly desperate to sign another central midfielder this summer, and new reports over the weekend suggest that the Reds have missed out on Jurgen Klopp's top midfield transfer target.

According to The Mirror:

"The Reds were in the running for...first-choice target Gregorz Krychowiak^, but he decided to follow his coach – Unai Emery – from Seville to further his career with PSG".

After signing for PSG, Krychowiak - who put in a series of stellar performances for Poland during Euro 2016 - (indirectly) revealed why he snubbed Liverpool:

"The opportunity to continue working with Unai Emery was a major factor in my decision, and I've joined PSG to win as many trophies as possible".

Reds fans will know all about 'absolutely unique' Krychowiak from the Europa League final, where he bossed midfield, and played a major role in keeping LFC's attacking players at bay.

In my view, Krychowiak is just the type of positional specialist Liverpool need (i.e. an experienced, dedicated defensive midfielder, who know his job inside out), but PSG is clearly a more attractive proposition right now, especially with Emery taking over.

Klopp has a history of making superstars out of Polish players, but on this occasion, his alleged pull in the transfer market deserted him.

Another one bites the dust.
