Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he actually wanted to sign Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard when the playmaker was very much younger.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss also admitted that he admires the Gunners captain and really wanted to sign him for Borussia Dortmund before he joined Real Madrid.

 

The Reds go to Arsenal on Sunday and Klopp said: “Martin Odegaard, I spoke to him when he was 15 from Norway when the whole world wanted him and he decided on Real Madrid.
