Liverpool want to sign Fulham destroyer Joao Palhinha but a possible deal may hinge on the actions of a Tottenham Hotspur midfielder. 

Jürgen Klopp is thought to be a huge admirer of Palhinha and is hoping to make the Portugal international his new no.6, having missed out on Romeo Lavia and Moises Caicedo earlier this summer. The pair joined Chelsea after being linked with moves to Anfield but Klopp is confident he can land his third-choice option.  Liverpool do face competition from Bayern Munich however, and reports in Germany suggest the player has already verbally agreed terms with the German giants.
