Jürgen Klopp seems keen on targeting the under-25 set this summer, with Loris Karius and Joël Matip already having been brought into the manager's plans for the 2015-2016 season. But like most managers, Klopp is also apparently planing for many years down the road by targeting additional youth recruits to join the Academy graduates he currently has populating the fringes of his first team.

According to a source close to Danish club FC Nordsjaelland that spoke with ESPN, today's transfer target is none other than young Emre Mor. Scoring two goals and two assists in thirteen matches with Nordsjaelland this season were enough to convince Turkey's national team manager Fatih Terim to bring the young midfielder along for the ride at the European Championships, despite Mor having only made one previous appearance for the senior team.

ESPN also reports that Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund, and Ajax are keeping an eye on the player, which means Klopp will need to move fast if his interest actually exists and is genuine. Details are certainly sketchy at this point, but at the very least Mor makes for one more player Liverpool fans can keep an eye on during the tournament.

Turkey are in Group D alongside Croatia, the Czech Republic, and reigning Euro champions Spain.
