Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is looking to reinforce several areas of his squad in the transfer window and left-back appears to be a top priority, with big question marks over the future of first-choice Alberto Moreno.

The Spaniard has been criticised for his poor performance in the second half of the Europa League final defeat to Sevilla on Wednesday and it is thought Klopp is keen on finding a replacement.

Chilwell has just over a year left on his Foxes contract and is believed to be frustrated at the King Power Stadium. He sits behind Christian Fuchs in Claudio Ranieri’s plans and reports say he is willing to leave City despite their incredible Premier League title triumph.

Chilwell did make three senior appearances for Leicester this season, but they all came in cup competitions and Liverpool hope to take advantage of his uncertain future by landing the 19-year-old for just £3million.

Arsenal are also interested in the England youth international and could yet try and usurp Liverpool with a higher bid this summer.
