Liverpool have reportedly entered the transfer race to sign Brazilian attacker Malcom.

Manchester United have also expressed interest in signing the 21-year-old forward in the past year and tried to lure him at Old Trafford during the January transfer window. However, the deal has never been materialised.

But Liverpool are looking to beat their arch-rivals to a summer deal as the Reds boss bids to bolster his attacking options ahead of the new season.

Meanwhile, Manchester United also remain keen on to lure Malcom as a replacement for Anthony Martial whose future at Old Trafford remains up in the air.

Liverpool are set for a top-four finish in this campaign and could yet win the Champions League as they face Real Madrid in the final later in the month.

However, Klopp knows further spending is necessary to compete for all possible trophies next season and Liverpool ready to rival Man Utd, according to the Daily Mail.

Malcom, who has scored 21 goals in 94 games for Ligue 1 outfits  Bordeaux since joining them from Corinthians back in 2016, is one of the most highly-rated players in France.

He was also linked with a switch to Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, but at the moment Liverpool and Man Utd are favourites to secure his signature.

Liverpool have included Brazilian winger on a shortlist of targets that also includes Leon Bailey and Christian Pulisic.

Malcom is valued at around £40million, and Bourdouex have recently confirmed that player could be sold this summer.
