Klopp Interested in Clarets Captain
Liverpool are reportedly plotting a £15million bid to try and lure Burnley and England goalkeeper Tom Heaton away from Turf Moor. Heaton has been with the Clarets since the summer of 2013 and his performances have been key to helping the club pick up points in the Premier League this season.
Heaton’s performances, most notably at Old Trafford in the goalless draw with former club Manchester United, have led to interest from Liverpool, Everton and Manchester City as they look to solve their issues between the sticks.
However, Liverpool appear to be leading the way and boss Jurgen Klopp is willing to part with £15million as he looks to find a reliable number one. Simon Mignolet has been under the spotlight for the past couple of seasons, while new addition Loris Karius was recently dropped after a string of poor outings following his summer arrival.
Heaton, who recently earned a call up to the England senior side, currently has three and a half years left on his contract at Turf Moor but theClarets may be tempted to sell if the money is right.
