Explosive’ youngster’s family aren’t convinced Liverpool are the right club for him

As Liverpool prepare for life after Jurgen Klopp, they may just have been dealt a blow in the transfer market.

Klopp handed Liverpool the biggest and most unexpected bad news for some time yesterday, as he announced that he’ll leave at the end of the season.

The 56-year-old’s departure will have ramifications that run through the whole club. One of which could be how it affects Liverpool in the transfer market. Klopp is a huge pull for any player considering Liverpool. Without him, the Reds may find it trickier to win crowded races to sign players.

And according to journalist Christian Falk, they might have already lost one such battle. Writing for the Daily Briefing yesterday, Falk claimed that Liverpool are unlikely to sign Schalke youngster Assan Ouedraogo. However, it should be noted that Klopp has nothing to do with this one, rather the 17-year-old’s family aren’t sure Ouedraogo is ready for the move.

“Assan Ouedraogo’s father has a key role in this transfer saga,” reports the journalist. “What I have heard is that the family is thinking a step into another league like the Premier League would be a step too much for him. He’s a very young player. The same goes for Bayern or Liverpool.

“At the moment it seems like RB Leipzig is leading the race and he wants to stay in the Bundesliga if he is going to leave Schalke. At the moment, he has a little injury, so it’s not really a transfer that’s hot for the current window, more for the future. I think he would love to stay at Schalke but it could be that he’s forced to go because of the amount of interest in him.”
