The 20-year-old is being monitored by Klopp as he prepares for big personnel changes this summer.

Speaking to Croatian outlet Sportske Novosti last weekend, Luka Sucic was asked to comment on the rumours linking him with a move to Merseyside.

“I’ve read some of those stories too and that’s all I can tell you about the subject,” said the youngster. “Of course, I’m glad to be mentioned in that context, but I’m on the ground firmly, I don’t “fly” because of these stories and writings. When the time comes for that, we’ll see what happens, weigh what’s best to continue my career. It’s mine to play the best I can at the club and the national team and then the transfer will come on its own.” the midfielder said.

Currently out with a knee problem, Sucic has still impressed at Salzburg and has become an interesting player sought after by Premier League stalwarts Liverpool.

The Reds are still open to investing in the youngster’s services as he provides energy and longevity to an ageing midfield.

The youngster expressed his willingness for a new challenge abroad.

“I am open to everything, I can play in any league, but my style of play lies the most and suits Spain.”

Liverpool are used to negotiating with Red Bull clubs and are aware of their ability to hone young talent into well-known world beaters and will be hoping that Sucic will join that exclusive club.

Sucic would be a much cheaper option to first-choice picks Jude Bellingham and Mason Mount and wouldn’t necessarily be the first name on Klopp’s team sheet.

But, with a midfield that appears lacklustre and no sign of getting any younger, Sucic would be a smart buy, especially with the lack of interest from opposing clubs.
