Bamford has enjoyed a superb campaign in an impressive newly-promoted Leeds side, silencing numerous detractors in the process.
As a report from The Athletic emerged confirming the 27-year-old extended his contract at Elland Road by a further 12 month last summer, the same report has claimed the Reds are ‘believed to admire’ the forward.
As cited by The Anfield Talk on Twitter, the report from David Ornstein has claimed the new deal may not stop any transfer move this summer were a ‘suitable’ bid to materialise.

Signing Bamford would certainly provide additional attacking options to the Anfield ranks.
Klopp will be desperate to add alternatives to the tried and tested front three this summer and the England Under 21 international has proven to be ready-made for the Premier League.
Having said all of that, at 27 and with two years remaining on a contract, signing Bamford would be an expensive outlay and the Reds could perhaps find better value elsewhere – such as teammate Raphinha.
