Liverpool are confident they have beaten Arsenal in the race for Ben Chilwell.

The England youth international is regarded as one of the nation's brightest young talents, and his reputation was only enhanced by his spell at Huddersfield Town - when he won the respect of players and staff and the hearts of the fans with his blend of attacking skill, defensive nous and youthful industry.

He's been attracting attention at the top end of football's pyramid for some time, but now the Daily Mirror are reporting that Liverpool are confident they have seen off the challenge of Arsenal and they are ready to pay around £3m for his services.

Jurgen Klopp is looking for a new left back, and Alberto Moreno's well-publicised struggles against Sevilla in the Europa League final have shone the spotlight on the position.

Chilwell is currently in Toulon with England u21s, for whom he made his first start in a 1-0 victory against Portugal on Thursday.

He has previously represented the young Lions at u18, u19 and u20 levels.

Town were keen to extend Chilwell's initial loan but he returned to Leicester in January, although he made just three appearances in the Foxes' Premier League title-wining campaign - two in the FA Cup and one in the Capital One Cup.

Klopp is also confident of landing another target - Mainz keeper Loris Karius, who is expected to proivide back-up and competition for no1 Simon Mignolet.

And that would free up Danny Ward, on the bench for the Europa League final in Basel, for a loan move.

The Reds stopper, who is part of Wales' provisional Euro 2016 squad, has been repeatedly linked with a season-long spell at the John Smith's Stadium.
