Contact Made: Klopp makes personal phone call to ask about 'powerful' goal-machine. Sign for Liverpool?

Liverpool are reportedly considering a move for one of Nottingham Forest's brightest talents.

According to the Liverpool Echo over the weekend:

"Liverpool are linked with a move for Nottingham Forest youngster Ben Brereton. Jurgen Klopp...made a personal phone call to Nottingham Forest this week to ask about Brereton".

Some info about Brereton:

* 15 goals in 20 games for Forest's U23 team this season.

Description on the Nottingham Forest website: "A powerful centre forward with a good technical ability [who's] in red-hot form for the Under 23s".

* Oct 2016: Forest boss Philip Montanier's assessment: "He [Brereton] is a good player. He is a good finisher, but he needs to grow and get stronger. If he gets stronger, he will only get better".

* Dec 2016: Signed a new long-term deal with Forest. After signing, the club's Owner Fawaz Al Hasawi enthused: "Ben is a player we admire greatly and we are all looking forward to seeing him progress with us".

* Dec 2016: On his time in the U23s: "I think I have adapted quite well, I have learned to get into spaces and to work the defender. I do feel as though I am getting stronger".

* Jan 2017: The Nottingham Post claimed that Man Utd are considering a 'seven figure' offer for Brereton.

Meh. Another signing for the distant future. What about the club's transfer needs right now?
