Arsenal are keen to beat Liverpool to the signature of Lorient star Raphael Guerreiro ahead of the upcoming transfer window, Transfer Market Web reports.
The 22-year-old has emerged as a summer target for the Reds of late, but the Gunners are said to have already opened talks over a potential move for his services.
He is being linked with a switch to join manager Arsene Wenger at the Emirates amid doubts over the role of left-back Kieran Gibbs.
Klopp is also keen to add the Portugal international into his ranks this summer in order to provide Alberto Moreno with more defensive competition.
Guerreiro will enter the final year of his contract at the end of the current campaign, which may convince the Ligue 1 side to sell sooner rather than later.
He has already featured 36 times in all competitions for his side this term, so far managing to score three goals while providing another two assists.
