Liverpool may have to act quickly to sign Schalke youngster Malick Thiaw in a bargain deal, according to reports.
Jurgen Klopp will be keen to strengthen their squad even further in the next transfer window.
Daily Mirror claims Liverpool have identified talented youngster Thiaw, who has been labelled the ‘new Joel Matip’.
The 18-year-old has only made one Bundesliga appearance to date for Schalke when he came off the bench in their 1-1 draw with Hoffenheim on March 7.
At the end of the current season, Thiaw will only have one year left on his current contract and he currently has a release clause that means Liverpool or any other club could buy him for £7million.
