Jurgen Klopp will allow Liverpool to move for Ruben Neves

Football News

The rumour mill has been going non-stop since Jurgen Klopp joined Liverpool last week, with the German asserting that he wants the final say on all transfers in or out of the club.

This week's big rumour is that the Reds are in the process of making enquiries about FC Porto's midfield sensation Ruben Neves, in a deal which could dwarf Manchester United's outlay on Anthony Martial in summer.

Like Martial, Neves is already a first-team regular for his current club, having made 37 appearances last season. However, he is somewhat unproven at the highest level, yet to represent Portugal at Senior International level. But he could prove to be an inspired signing if the Anfield club can pull this deal off.

According to the Mirror, first team Development coach Pepijn Lijnders "identified Neves as an outstanding talent," and immediately recommended him to Klopp, who had also been following the youngster during his time at Borussia Dortmund.

Intelligent on the ball, and with the quality to match his tenacity, Neves has the potential to grow into a world-class midfielder; something Liverpool have lacked since Xabi Alonso left for Real Madrid in 2009.

Klopp gives green light

The approach for Neves has apparently been met with encouragement from the player's entourage, with Liverpool's informal bid making them the first team to ramp up their interest in the youngster.

Klopp has demanded he has the first and last word on any transfers at Anfield, but he is unlikely to block any move for a player with the indisputable talent of Neves; who could become the German's first Liverpool signing.
