Liverpool are set to battle Chelsea for the signing of Lois Openda

In what is perhaps the surest sign yet that Liverpool are looking beyond life with Mo Salah, reports suggest that the Reds are ready to battle with Premier League rivals, Chelsea, for a highly-rated hit-man.

Jurgen Klopp has already announced that he will be leaving the club at the end of the current campaign, so any pursuit of players could be said to be with a new manager in mind.

Chelsea still retain the services of Mauricio Pochettino, however, the way the season is panning out for the Blues manager, he too could be leaving his post come the summer.

Lois Openda to Liverpool or Chelsea?

Although he missed a couple of presentable chances against Real Madrid in this week’s Champions League encounter at the Santiago Bernabeu, RB Leipzig’s Lois Openda has had a superb season in terms of numbers.
