Liverpool boss Klopp admits interest for Hertha Berlin youngster Mitchell Weiser

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted admiration for Hertha Berlin youngster Mitchell Weiser.

Weiser shone for Hertha in their friendly defeat to Liverpool on Saturday.

Afterwards, Klopp admits wing-back Weiser caught his eye: "The right side of Hertha gave us a lot of problems. This was due to the quality of Hertha, especially coming from Mitchell Weiser."

A Germany U21 international, Weiser is a player very much in the style of the Klopp prototype and has been linked with a big club departure. He is tied to Hertha until 2020.

"I love to play against such players," he said of facing Liverpool. "I see what is missing and where I can step up. I want to play permanently at this level at some point."
