Liverpool outcast Samed Yesil has suggested that he will talk to Reds boss Jurgen Klopp at some point in the future. 

As reported by the Liverpool Echo, Yesil, who is currently out on loan at Swiss Super League outfit FC Luzern, has admitted that he was pleased when the Merseyside outfit hired Klopp as their new boss. 

The revered coach replaced Brendan Rodgers at Anfield back in October and Yesil has now admitted that he will be hoping to score goals in his pursuit of impressing the new man at the helm.

At just 21-years-old, Yesil, who signed for Liverpool from Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2012, has only made two appearances for the Reds, but he's still seemingly hoping for a long-term future at the club. 

“When I heard that he was coach I thought ‘oh how cool’,” Yesil told German newspaper BILD.

Yesil plans 

“He is known to rely on young players.

“I prefer to speak with goals than to send him Christmas cards. We’ll talk to each other when the time comes.

“I know my quality and trust myself, I’ll push through there (Liverpool). But for now it is about collecting match practice with Luzern.”

Liverpool in attack 

Let's be honest, Yesil has a long way to go before he becomes a key player for the Reds. In fact, with just one goal from eight games for Luzern, it's unlikely that the German youngster will enter the first-team frame on Merseyside in the immediate future. 

Klopp has a number of attacking options at his disposal, but his strikers have struggled recently. Christian Benteke and Daniel Sturridge have failed to maintain their fitness throughout the course of the campaign while youngster Divock Origi still has a great deal to learn. 

With Danny Ings out for the season, it's not entirely surprising that Klopp has handed Roberto Firmino a role in attack. 

Liverpool fans: do you expect Yesil to have a long-term future at your club? Have your say below!
