Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and Mino Raiola have met, reportedly to discuss possible deals for two of the ‘super agent’s’ clients, namely Gianluigi Donnarumma and Justin Kluivert.
TuttoMercatoWeb (TMW) reports that Milan’s Donnarumma was the main topic of conversation, with Liverpool still interested in adding to their goalkeeping numbers, despite the form of Loris Karius.
Karius has improved since Klopp made him first choice at Anfield ahead of Simon Mignolet, but some remain unconvinced, while reports have suggested that the Reds want a more reliable goalkeeper who can be their regular number one for years to come.

Liverpool have even been linked with Donnarumma’s countryman Gianluigi Buffon after he confirmed that he will be leaving Juventus, but Donnarumma would make much more sense because of his age.
Paris Saint-Germain have also met with Raiola about Donnarumma but Liverpool will keep close tabs on the situation. TMW indicates that the Reds are yet to bid for the young Italian though.
The other player up for discussion was Justin Kluivert, the 19-year-old Ajax striker and son of Netherlands legend Patrick Kluivert. The highly rated young winger has also been linked with Manchester United and Roma.
Liverpool finished fourth in the Premier League and have a Champions League final against Real Madrid to come but Klopp is not resting on his laurels, with Naby Keita already set to join the Reds from RB Leipzig this summer after agreeing a deal last year.
