Jurgen Klopp has already made moves to strengthen his Liverpool squad this summer by tabling a bid for Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne.

The German is desperate to recruit the pacey 27-year-old forward as he looks to bolster his offensive options.

Liverpool are currently three points clear at the top of the Premier League but Klopp is aware that he must continue to improve his squad to maintain their progress.

Italian newspaper La Repubblica, via Sport Witness, are reporting that the Reds have launched a £61million offer for the Italian via his representative Mino Raiola.

Reports suggest the offer has been immediately rebuffed though by Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis, who has told Liverpool to pay more than double their initial offer.
