English Premier League outfit Liverpool are reported to be a step forward in the pursuit of Leicester City playmaker James Maddison.

Jurgen Klopp’s team only indicated interest in his signature but they are now set to take an approach to make enquiries about details of his availability.

Liverpool have got a number of midfielders including Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum but only Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have got the ability to cause havoc in the final third.

This is why manager Jurgen Klopp seeks to add the Leicester City man to his squad in a bid to strengthen his competition next season.

For the past two seasons, the Merseyside outfit have failed to win the competition from Man City, their rivals in the English Premier League and the former Borussia Dortmund manager is working hard to ensure that he puts an end to the reign of Pep Guardiola’s team.

Last season was a very competitive one as it took only the last day to determine who will lift the title.

Liverpool lost out with just a point behind Man City which makes this season one of the most competitive in the history of English Premier League.
