Liverpool boss Klopp wanted Nice whiz Saint-Maximin ahead of Shaqiri

Nice whiz Allan Saint-Maximin is being tracked by Liverpool.

France Football says Saint-Maximin's agent Stephane Courbis fielded approaches from Liverpool and West Ham last summer.

Both clubs pushed Courbis to open talks about ferrying Saint-Maximin to England this season. Liverpool, particularly, were eager to sign the 21 year-old.

However in the end, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp chose to snap up Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City.

Saint-Maximin, meanwhile, remains on the radar of Liverpool chiefs as a long-term transfer prospect.
