Liverpool are the front runners to sign Colombian teenager, Kevin Mantilla for £3.5m.

According to Colombian news site Caracol, Liverpool will have to beat many European clubs to his signature.

They claim Liverpool, Rangers, Newcastle, Porto, AEK Athens, PAOK and Torino are interested in the 19 year old centre back.

But Liverpool have the strongest links, with TMW reporting The Reds are ready to pay £3.5m for Mantilla.

It’s no surprise that Klopp is in the hunt to strengthen his defensive line this summer and Mantilla is a cheaper option.

At only 19, Mantilla has played 28 first team games for Independiente Santa Fe, but would be a signing for the long term.
