With Virgil van Dijk’s arrival and Philippe Coutinho’s potential departure dominating the headlines, some of the smaller transfer stories involving Liverpool this month have inevitably slipped under the radar – such as Jurgen Klopp’s apparent interest in Stoke City winger Ramadan Sobhi.

According to Sky Sports’ Peter O’Rourke, the Liverpool gaffer has asked for a character reference from Egypt team-mate Mohamed Salah, suggesting the Potters prospect has taken his fancy. So we asked Reds supporters earlier this week whether they’d back a transfer swoop for the 19-cap attacker and according to our poll, 60% would be in favour of a deal.
The 6 foot winger is starting to make his mark in the Premier League after scoring twice in December, highlighting the progress the 20-year-old has made since arriving from Al-Ahly in summer 2016.
Transfermarkt currently value him at just £5.4million and highly-rated as a young attacker with big potential, Liverpool would be wise to move before another upturn in form sees that sum drastically increases.
