Jurgen Klopp has sent rumour mill into overdrive after he was spotted watching Argentina’s Copa America opener against Chile.
It was initially claimed that the Liverpool boss was sitting next to Gonzalo Higuain’s brother and agent, Nicolas, while beIN Sports USA reported that a deal for the Napoli striker was close to being completed.

With the benefit of a close-up shot, it’s now claimed that the mystery man is in fact Klopp’s son, Marc.
Goal understands that Klopp is on holiday in California, which could mean that his son was the man pictured alongside him at the Levi’s Stadium.

Higuain has enjoyed a stellar campaign at Napoli in which he broke a 66-year-old record by becoming the highest ever goalscorer in a single Serie A season.
The former Real Madrid man started in Argentina’s Copa America opener against Chile but did not get on the scoresheet in a 2-1 victory for Gerardo Martino’s side.
