Klopp to Sign? Boss confirms 'offers' for 'priceless' €20m Liverpool target who's 'truly complete'. Replace Ings?

Sassuolo director general Giovanni Carnevali has confirmed that Premier League clubs are trying to sign Liverpool target Gregoire Defrel.

Last month, Defrel's agent confirmed Liverpool are 'watching' the striker, and when asked this week about a possible transfer, Carnevali told reporters:

"He [Defrel] is very well-liked by foreign clubs. There have been offers from the Premier League".

Could one of these offers be from Liverpool? Given Jurgen Klopp's confirmed interest, it's definitely possible, and with a lack of depth in the striker department, the Reds arguably need reinforcements in that area.

Some info about €20m-rated Defrel:

* Left-footed centre-forward, who can also play on either wing.

* Cesena/Sassuolo: 57 goals/assists in 166 apps (Goal every 363 mins. G/A every 198 mins). This season: 14 goals/assists in 21 games (One every 116 mins).

* Oct 2016: Italian newspaper Tutto Mercato claimed that Jurgen Klopp sent scouts to watch Defrel.

* Nov 2016: Defrel's agent raved: "Defrel is priceless. He is an important player, and truly complete. There are very few players like him around".

* Nov 2016: Sassuolo's general manager, John Carnevali, revealed that he'd received 'many offers' for the striker.

If Klopp is looking for a potential replacement for Daniel Sturridge, the Defrel clearly isn't the solution, especially with a pitiful ratio of one goal every 363 minutes.
