Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has set his sights on signing the Dutch star Quincy Promes, according to The Sun.

Per-the-source, Liverpool are readying a £25 million bid for the Spartak Moscow striker as they look to bolster their attacking options.

Promes has been the side’s top scorer in two of the last three seasons in the Russian Premier League.

The report goes onto say that Klopp is hoping to conclude the deal very shortly as he is keen to replace  Sadio Mane, who is away with the Senegal national team at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The 25-year-old has an impressive track record in Russia, netting 37 times in 73 appearances for Spartak Moscow.

In other Liverpool transfer news, Southampton have emerged as a serious contender to sign Mamadou Sakho, according to the Liverpool Echo [via L’Equipe].

Liverpool are currently second in the Premier League and take on Southampton in the Premier League next weekend.
