Diario Gol have reported that Klopp is a big fan of the Real Madrid goalkeeper and wants to sign him, after reports that he is unhappy at the club.

The same report does make it clear that manager Zinedine Zidane fully endorses Navas as his number one goalkeeper.
The 30-year-old goalkeeper has featured 12 times across all competitions for Real Madrid this season, conceding nine goals and keeping four clean sheets.
