According to a report on French publication Foot Mercato via Football London, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has handed Chelsea a transfer blow by making a move for a Chelsea transfer target.

The Premier League leaders are reportedly chasing Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze, who is also wanted by Chelsea.

Liverpool have signed Takumi Minamino from RB Salzburg this January but are keen on adding more players to their squad.

Chukwueze reportedly has a release clause of £53.5 million but the Spanish club may even do business for £34 million, it has been claimed.

The Blues are yet to sign a player during the January transfer window.
