Liverpool are planning a move for Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook in the summer as a replacement for Emre Can, according to the Sun.
Jurgen Klopp is assigned to losing the 24-year-old with the player’s contract set to expire in the summer – he is now on the search for a replacement.
It is understood that on Klopp’s list of replacements is Cook with the Reds having sent scouts to watch the player in action for the Cherries.
At 21-years of age, Cook remains a highly promising, young talent and a player Liverpool having been scouting since his days at Leeds United.
Last summer, the midfielder captained England to Under-20 World Cup glory and since then, he has gone on to become an integral part of Eddie Howe’s side at the Vitality.
However, this summer, Liverpool are set to make a move for the youngster as they look to replace contract rebel Can.
Liverpool are still yet to reach a breakthrough in negotiations with Can over a new deal with a growing expectancy of losing him this summer.
Italian giants Juventus are the club currently favorites to land the player with the player set to move their on a free transfer.
This has forced Klopp to go in search of alternatives, with Napoli’s Jorginho also being targeted by the Meyerside club.
