According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool is looking to strengthen their squad by signing youngster Samuel Bastien from Anderlecht for £4m.

Samuel Bastien is currently on loan at Avellino, and he played in the Italian Serie B during the 2015/16 campaign, showing up on the pitch on thirty-one occasion, and scoring two goals along the way. Bastien’s primary position is as midfielder, and Klopp could be looking at signing him because the youngster could provide to be a good long-term option for Liverpool.

Reportedly, this is not the first time Bastien is being linked with Liverpool, because the Reds showed some interest in March, and this is just the sequel to the initially shown interest. The Nineteen-year-old player participated in his first Belgium U21 game this year, and despite not scoring any goals, he was quite impressive.

Maybe that is the main reason why Klopp wants to bring him, because Liverpool could use a good back-up player or two and there is no better way to bolster your squad than bringing in a national representative.
