Agent admits Liverpool boss Klopp keen on Mainz 'utility' Gbamin

The agent of Mainz midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin has revealed the interest of Liverpool.

Indeed, Bernard Collignon admits a raft of Premier League heavyweights have been tracking the 23 year-old.

He told Fussball Transfers: "In January 2018, (Jurgen) Klopp called Mainz and wanted to commit him as a center-back, who also helps out in midfield. But Mainz did not want to let him go in the middle of the relegation battle. In the summer, Liverpool signed Fabinho.

"I had meetings with Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal, Everton and many other clubs. He is on the shortlist. However, not as a top candidate, because his exact position is unclear.

"In my opinion he is a player worth €60m. It's time for him to play as a centre-back. There he would be a top player in all four major leagues and would make a great career. At almost 24 years you have to make a decision."
