Former Liverpool midfielder Jan Molby is a big fan of Schalke defender Kyriakos Papadopoulos.

Papadopoulos is a top target for Reds boss Brendan Rodgers.

Molby told the Daily Star Sunday: “I’m not surprised that Liverpool are hoping to secure the services of Papadopoulos this summer.

“He is as strong as a bull, dominant in the air and very good in one-on-one situations. When I’ve seen him in action in Champions League matches, I’ve been impressed.

“He hasn’t played since before Christmas due to a knee problem but I’m sure Liverpool will have received reassurances that he has made a complete ­recovery.

“He certainly fits the profile in terms of the type Liverpool seem to want to build a team around – he’s a ­talented young ­player with real ­potential.”
