Liverpool boss Klopp 'obsessed' with Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Junior

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is keeping close tabs on Real Madrid attacker Vinicius Junior, it has been revealed.

Currently recovering from injury, Vinicius is yet play for new coach Zinedine Zidane.

And Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda, speaking with El Chiringuito, says Klopp was eager to sign Vinicius when Real came knocking for Sadio Mane last summer.

"When Madrid went to ask for a price for Mané, Liverpool moved the obsession of Klopp that is Vinicius. Real Madrid said 'it is not no'," Inda revealed.

It's been suggested Liverpool asked for €200m PLUS Vinicius for Mane - but Real regarded the demands too steep.

However, Inda admits the Brazilian remains an "obsession" for Klopp.
