Liverpool weighing up move for long-term Klopp target after development - report
By Harvey Byrne
Liverpool are weighing up a move for young Borussia Dortmund midfielder Emre Mor after the German club made him available for loan, according to a report.
The Sun have claimed on their website that the Budesliga side will allow the 19-year-old right-winger to leave the club temporarily next season.
This has led to Jurgen Klopp planning a loan bid with a view to a permanent deal for the youngster after the German manager was targeting Mor before he made the move from Nordsjaelland to Dortmund last summer.
The Merseyside giants are however banned from signing players for their academy after admitting to tapping up charges for a Stoke prospect.
This means that Mor will have to join the first team squad if he does move to Anfield and he has already made 19 appearances for the Dortmund senior team while also being capped by Turkey 11 times at international level.

He is clearly a bright prospect and given Klopp’s knowledge of the Bundesliga he will know what the right sided attacker can bring to his club.
The German manager may also be looking to add some younger cover to Sadio Mane out wide given the club’s struggles without the Senegalese in the last campaign.
Football Insider verdict:
This deal would be a very good one for Liverpool if they manage to complete it. Not only is Mor a young up and coming talent, but he would also add some depth to where the Reds are currently weak in. However, there may also be question as to why Mor is being allowed to leave Dortmund if he is so good. The Bundesliga club are only likely to agree to a loan deal and clubs such as Liverpool certainly aren’t the type to bring in a youngster and then develop them only for them to return to their parent side. Therefore, Klopp should only consider a move if a permanent deal in the future is possible.
