As the Jude Bellingham transfer saga proves to be a painstakingly long one, a cheap alternative in the form of young ace Gabri Veiga may be what Klopp will pounce on.

The 20-year-old Celta Viga starlet is regarded as a brilliant prospect in Spain, and reportedly has a £35m release clause in his contract with his current club.

Not many clubs will want to pay that for a lesser-known player and so the competition could be positively scarce.

Saying that, a series of clubs have also been keeping tabs on the talented youngster, according to ESPN, with Manchester United, Newcastle United, AC Milan and Napoli all interested.

January interest from Bournemouth and Leeds United was also reported, but the interest never materialised into a tangible deal.

Spanish heavyweights Real Madrid are also reported to be an admirer of the youngster, so it seems that an extended deal with Los Celestes is on the cards for Veiga.

With eight goals and three assists to his name this season, it’s clear to understand the attraction to Veiga as a differential option in the summer window.

For a low and respectable price, a fierce battle amongst the Premier League suitors may unravel if they wait too long.
