Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been impressed with Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater and will attempt to sign him in the summer transfer window.
This has been reported by the Mirror, who claim that the Merseyside outfit could swoop for the £14 million-rated England international.
Drinkwater, of course, is hopeful of going to Euro 2016 with England after a wonderful season with the Foxes.

Alongside N'Golo Kante, Drinkwater played a prominent role in the middle of the park to help Claudio Ranieri's side secure the Premier League title.
It's uncertain as to whether he would be interested in a move to Liverpool, but it appears that Klopp is going to attempt to secure his signature.

After failing to overcome Sevilla in the Europa League final on Wednesday night, the Reds will enter the 2016/17 campaign without European football, while Leicester City will enter the Champions League for the first time in their history.
It appears that Klopp is ready to mix things up in the midfield department at Anfield; the likes of James Milner, Emre Can and Jordan Henderson may have to fight off added competition in the immediate future.
Drinkwater could have a big decision to make this summer, but for now he will be focused on securing a place in Roy Hodgson's squad for Euro 2016.
He featured during the Three Lions' 2-1 victory over Turkey on Sunday, but it's far from certain as to whether he will make the final 23.
Could United rival them?
And, while the Mirror claim that Drinkwater could be on his way to Liverpool, former Manchester United assistant Rene Meulensteen has suggested that the Red Devils should swoop for the combative midfielder.
Drinkwater came through the ranks at Old Trafford, of course, but it's far from certain as to whether the club would look to bring him back to Old Trafford.
Meulensteen told 888sport, as per the Mirror: “Drinkwater has a United history having come through the academy and look how he’s established himself in the Premier League.
“If you bring a foreign player in they might need time to adjust. Players like Danny Drinkwater – who is now in the England squad – would fit in nice and easily at United.”
One thing is for sure, it looks set to be an interesting summer period ahead for the Leicester City man.
