Klopp to sign? Liverpool want 'incredible' record-breaking €30m attacker; Agent keen to seal transfer to the Prem

Liverpool are reportedly considering a summer move for one of the Championship's stars of the season.

According to Star Sport:

* Liverpool are planning to make a bid for Wolves attacker Helder Costa.

* His Agent is 'keen to push through a deal' to the Prem if Wolves decide to cash-in during the summer transfer window.

Some info about Costa:

* 23-year old left-winger, who can also play RW, and number 10. Contract expires: 2021

* Description on Wolves' website: "Costa is an...exciting winger...who came through the ranks at Benfica and started his senior career with their ‘B’ team".

* Feb 2017: Paul Lambert's assessment: "He [Costa] is a big talent, and what he’s done in English football in a short space of time has been incredible".

€30m-rated Costa has weighed in with 18 goals/assists this season, and although he and Wolves recently put Liverpool to the sword, the West Midlands's club is currently hovering above the Championship relegation zone (which makes Liverpool's recent defeat look even worse).

Additionally, Wolves signed Costa less than a month ago in a £13m deal (a new club record), and it seems unlikely that they'll let him just 6 months later. Of course, money talks, but Costa has only 6 months of English football experience (in a lower league) and spending more than £13m on a one-season wonder is a massive financial gamble.
