Talking about the 25-year-old, Klopp said: “I was now part of the discussions. Let me say like this I know this boy and since summer we wanted to have him.

“He didn’t play the simple six at Brighton, but he’s an incredibly smart player. incredibly smart. And as long as you can create a compact formation mark he is an outstanding six.”
