Record-breaking strike star keen on shock Liverpool move

Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain is keen on a surprise move to Liverpool this summer to work under Jurgen Klopp, according to reports from the Mirror.

The Argentine has long been hailed as one of the most dangerous forwards on the planet, and broke the record for the most goals scored in a single Serie A campaign in the season just gone with a stunning 36 in just 35 games.

This form has alerted a host of clubs from across Europe, but reports claim that the 28-year-old sees joining Liverpool as a desirable option.

Higuain is ready to quit Napoli after three seasons in Italy, in which time the Naples side have been beaten to the league title by Juventus and struggled to cement themselves as Champions League regulars.

However, the player and his representatives have been shocked that Liverpool are yet to show any serious interest in him, even though Klopp is likely to pursue signings in the coming months to mould the squad he inherited from Brendan Rodgers into his own.
