Liverpool boss Klopp furious missing out on RB Leipzig signing Oliver Burke

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is furious missing out on former Nottingham Forest winger Oliver Burke.

The Sun says Klopp had earmarked the 19-year-old as a hot prospect for the future but saw Bundesliga club RB Leipzig fly under the radar to snap him up.

The failure to find out about Leipzig's raid reportedly angered Klopp, who is said to have let rip at his scouting team.

Klopp is not the only boss likely to be disappointed by Burke's switch.

Reports in Germany suggested Arsenal and Tottenham made last-ditch efforts to hijack Leipzig's deal while Bayern Munich were also credited with an interest.

Manchester United and Crystal Palace were also reportedly interested.
