Napoli star admits he turned down Liverpool transfer despite supporting the Reds
Jesper Lindstrom has admitted he turned down the chance to join Liverpool in favour of making the big-money move to Napoli instead.
The 23-year-old signed for the Serie A champions from Eintracht Frankfurt in a deal worth 25.6million plus add-ons last month. Lindstrom had made three appearances - including one in the Bundesliga - for Frankfurt this season before deciding to depart Deutsche Bank Park.
However, Lindstrom had more than one offer on the table. Liverpool made an approach to sign the Denmark international as Jurgen Klopp tried to bolster his attacking department.
A switch to Anfield would have been a childhood dream for Lindstrom. But the ex-Brondby star decided against a move to Merseyside and chose to move to Napoli.
"It was Liverpool and I am a Liverpool supporter, so it would've been a madly fascinating experience, but would it have been an intelligent move?" Lindstrom told Danish paper Tipsbladet, via Football Italia.
