Jesper Lindstrom declares love for Liverpool to give Jurgen Klopp transfer hope
Jesper Lindstrom has admitted he is a Liverpool supporter - despite rejecting Jurgen Klopp's side to join Italian champions Napoli.
Liverpool tried to sign Lindstrom, 23, from Eintracht Frankfurt during the summer after a promising two-year spell in Germany. The attacking midfielder, who can also play on the wing, scored 12 goals and provided nine assists in 57 Bundesliga games.
Yet Lindstrom rejected the Reds to join Napoli in August. The Denmark international, who started his career with local club Brondby, made his debut for the Serie A champions by coming off the bench during their 2-1 home defeat to Lazio on Saturday.
Although Lindstrom wasn't interested in joining Liverpool this summer, he could still become a part of Klopp's squad on day. His main reason for rejecting the Reds was due to a fear of not playing consistently, believing he will get more of a chance at Napoli.
