Despite winning the Champions League for a sixth time last month, Liverpool have been rather quiet in the summer transfer window so far.
The Reds have only signed 17-year-old Dutch centre-back Sepp van den Berg, whilst Jurgen Klopp has previously insisted the club need to make sure that they were active in the market and kept up with their rivals’ spending.
Now, Spanish publication MARCA have claimed Klopp’s side are keeping an eye on Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos and that their interest has grown in recent weeks.

The report adds the club want the 22-year-old on a permanent deal and that Klopp himself believes the Spaniard could bring an element of dynamism to their midfield.
After hearing about the links to Ceballos, Liverpool fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on their rumoured transfer target and many were seemingly in favour of a potential move.
Reds supporters suggested that the Madrid man would thrive under Klopp’s leadership at Anfield and threw their backing behind a summer deal.
A few however were slightly more unimpressed by the links and felt Ceballos wasn’t the calibre of player they should be targeting; instead, they urged their team to “make a statement of intent”, rather than going for someone who was deemed as not good enough by the Spanish giants.
Check out some of the reaction of Liverpool fans below:
