Liverpool have made contact with Martin Odegaard, while Manchester United have Edinson Cavani on their radar after cooling interest in Mario Mandzukic, all in Euro Paper Talk.
KLOPP GOES FOR ODEGAARD
Jurgen Klopp has made contact with Real Madrid youngster Martin Odegaard about a transfer to Liverpool, claims a report.
The 20-year-old joined Real Sociedad on loan from Real Madrid this summer and the attacker said recently that has every intention of seeing out his two-year loan spell after settling in brilliantly in LaLiga.
He recently told Eurosport: “I am on a team that suits me very well. They are playing my style of football and I have a good role in the team.
Manchester United and Liverpool have been linked with Odegaard previously with The Sun suggesting that United will target Odegaard in a £25m move next summer, while Arsenal have also been mentioned as suitors for the Norwegian.
Now Don Balon say Klopp has made a move for the attacker, who has also been linked to Arsenal, by getting in touch with the player himself about a transfer to Anfield.
Odegaard, who was a €3m signing for Real in 2015, recently claimed he was still desperate to make an impact at Real Madrid and says his parent club still keep an eye on his progress.
“I have contact with some persons in the club. Sometimes I get a message, but it is mainly Real Sociedad that gives me feedback on my development,” Odegaard said.
