Klopp Decides: Liverpool make final transfer decision on 'fantastic' €50m attacker

Jurgen Klopp has reportedly ended his interest in signing one of Holland's most talented attackers.

In recent months, Spartak Moscow attacker Quincy Promes has emerged as one of Liverpool's top targets, and in mid-December, the Liverpool Echo claimed:

"Liverpool are to make a £25m bid for Spartak star Qunicy Promes".

Soon after, The Mirror claimed:

"Liverpool will step up their bid to land Quincy Promes in January. Jurgen Klopp is determined to find cover, and sees Promes as the perfect target"

According to the Daily Mail today:

"Liverpool do not intend to pursue Quincy Promes. Liverpool have watched [Promes] but Jurgen Klopp has no immediate plans to sign the Dutch international".

Spartak Owner Leonid Fedun recently insisted that he will not sell for 'anything less than '€40m-€50m', so Klopp's reluctance to pursue a deal makes sense. Plus, after being stung last year in his attempts to sign Alex Teixeira from Shakhtar Donetsk, Klopp has probably decided that investing time and energy into this particular deal is an exercise in futility.

In my view, the ability to quickly adapt and make an immediate impact is the most vital criterion when considering for a player during the January transfer window, and Klop is arguably better off targeting someone who is already playing in the Premier League (or has Prem experience).

Any ideas?s
