Liverpool fans think Klopp wants Newcastle’s Lascelles

Liverpool fans think Jürgen Klopp might be eyeing up Jamaal Lascelles for a future transfer.

Klopp is well known for his relationships with players, and not just those who play for Liverpool.

Sadio Mane and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain both received hugs off Klopp before their move to Liverpool, and his embraces with players like Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero show he has no problem sharing the love for rivals he admires.

Another Klopp trait Liverpool fans love is his strangely intense style of watching opposition teams warm up. Klopp is often seen stood at the half way line in a wide stance with his arms crossed watching rival teams warm up.

Klopp’s gaze on Saturday was directed at Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles, and Liverpool fans think it means he’s their next transfer target.

Klopp stared intently at Virgil van Dijk’s warm-up for Southampton last season, and Reds’ fans suspect he is eyeing the Newcastle captain as a future partner for the Dutchman…

Lascelles joined Newcastle in 2014 after a successful stint at Nottingham Forest, and has been one of the Magpies’ most consistent performers under Rafa Benitez.

If Newcastle get relegated, the Englishman may look to jump ship, and Liverpool fans have already decided his next destination. Some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
