Klopp to Sign? Liverpool Reps fly out to watch 'incredible' €90k-a-week Brazilian sensation

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is reportedly planning a summer raid on Ligue One.

According to a story posted on the official LFC website today:

* Liverpool and Manchester United are tracking Brazilian striker Malcom, who plays for Bordeaux.

* Reds scouts watched Malcom in action Bordeaux's 3-0 home defeat to PSG last week.

When asked after the game about a possible summer transfer, Malcom told Canal Plus:

"For me, it's not important which club and which championship I am in. I want to play for a big club, in the Champions League and win it."

Some info about Malcom:

* 19-year old right-winger, who can also play LW, and number-10. Contract expires: 2020.

* Bordeaux: 12 goals/assists in 42 apps (One ever 223 mins).

* Corinthians: 12 goals/assists in 54 apps (One every 308 mins)

* Reportedly on €90k-a-week after Bordeaux reportedly quadrupled his initial €23k-a-week deal to ward off interest from Barcelona

* Scouting Report: "Technically excellent. Difficult to catch with/without the ball. Nailed down Bordeaux's RW position. Will be difficult to oust from the team. Developing into a top-class talent".

* Dec 2016: Bordeaux boss Jocelyn Gourvennec raved: "When Malcom is good, the team is good too. He is a different player, serious, very comfortable technically and who sees very well the game. Bordeaux needs him at his best because he has an incredible talent."

Brazilian or not, Malcom's create stats for both Corinthians and Bordeaux are pretty average...
