Reports have it that Liverpool’s coach, Jurgen Klopp is looking to sign highly rated Nigerian winger, Moses Simon ahead of the new season.
Simon is not exactly a household name to the majority of Reds supporters, but possess pace, technique and dribbling ability.
Liverpool Echo noted that Klopp has identified the £10million-rated Gent winger as someone who can add some depth to one of the best frontlines in Europe.
Searing pace is one of the Nigerian international’s biggest assets, which means he could slot into one of the wide areas with minimum of fuss next term.
However, after a season which led Liverpool to the brink of European Cup, much is expected from Klopp’s Reds next term.

Perhaps such worries have come from many being unaware of the qualities of Gent winger Simon. His lack of participation at this summer’s World Cup is only down to injury and he is highly rated by those who watch him regularly.
Klopp has previous for unearthing a gem or two in the transfer market. The German’s track record is littered with low-key signings who have blossomed into some of the finest talents across Europe.
