Jurgen Klopp DortmundThe Jurgen Klopp era started with a 0-0 draw against Tottenham but there were a lot of positive signs for Liverpool.

The Merseysiders’ next Premier League opponent are Southampton and the German manager will hope that more than a few key stars will return from injury to boost the Reds.

As far as transfers are concerned, previously, Daily Star cited reports in the Italian media claiming that Klopp’s priority signing is a defensive midfielder in the form of Porto’s Ruben Navas who has a release clause of €29 million in his contract.

Now, Metro cite reports in the Spanish media claiming that Liverpool believe they have won the competition to sign the 18-year-old Portuguese midfielder. As per the provided link, the Reds have beaten PL rivals Chelsea to win the race for Ruben Navas.

The teenage star has quickly become a pivotal member in Porto’s first team and has the talent to replace Lucas Leiva at Liverpool.
