Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is expected to be a busy man in the summer transfer window.

The German boss is expected to add more new faces over the coming weeks after tying up a deal to bring Ibrahima Konate to Anfield.

The Reds' Premier League title defence was badly hit by injuries last season, and they ended up finishing 17 points adrift of Manchester City – although they did secure Champions League qualification thanks to a late surge.

Daily Star Sport has news of a potential swoop for Kingsley Coman, Florian Neuhaus's stance on a possible move, and a striker who has been compared to Erling Haaland.

Reds 'plot move' for Coman

Liverpool are said to be plotting a move for Bayern Munich star Kingsley Coman amid reports the winger could leave Bayern Munich.

That's according to Spanish outlet Fichajes, cited by The Kop Times, which claims the 25-year-old could end up leaving if talks over an improved contract are unsuccessful.

However, the report says the Reds are not willing to meet Bayern's asking price of €50million (£42m) – and could wait another before trying to land Coman as they are only prepared to pay £30m.

Reds target compared to Haaland

Reported Liverpool target Dusan Vlahovic could be as good as Erling Haaland over the next few years.

That's the verdict of Stevan Jovetic on the Fiorentina striker, who scored 21 goals in Serie A this season.

“[Vlahovic] will be the best striker of the next few years with Erling Haaland," Jovetic told Football Italia.

Liverpool held talks with Vlahovic's agent back in April, according to Inside Futbol, although Juventus and AC Milan are also said to be interested in the 21-year-old.

And former Fiorentina forward Jovetic said: "Potentially, he is ready for Juventus, but the most important thing is to get consistent playing time when you are as young as him.”

Neuhaus stance on Anfield move

Florian Neuhaus "wants to make the next step" as Liverpool weigh up potential replacements for Gini Wijnaldum.

The Reds have been in contact with the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder's agent, according to Florian Plettenberg, chief reporter at German outlet Sport1.

"There has been no concrete negotiations to my information, but there has been a contact between the management of the player and the bosses from Liverpool," he told the Liverpool Echo's Blood Red podcast.

"Neuhaus wants to make the next step but he is also feeling very comfortable in Gladbach," Plettenberg added.
"He wants to make the right step but it is very important it is the best feeling for him in his stomach."
