Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has identified Leeds United winger Jack Clarke as a priority target for the summer transfer window.

Liverpool kept their powder dry during January with Klopp desperate not to disrupt his Premier League title-chasing squad.

But their latest accounts show their finances are in rude health, with another spending spree on the cards at the end of the season.

Liverpool will be in the market for big-hitters are they seek to build on what’s been an impressive campaign to date.

Klopp, though, also has one eye on the future with Leeds prospect Clarke making his way on to the German’s radar.

Express Sport understands the Liverpool boss is interested in adding the highly-rated wideman to his playing staff.

And he has sent club personnel to make checks on the 18-year-old Leeds United star, who only made his senior debut last October.

The impressive reports Jurgen Klopp has received means he is eager to beat other Premier League suitors to Clarke’s signature.

And he wants Liverpool to launch a bid to recruit Clarke even if Leeds seal promotion from the Championship in May.
