Sheyi Ojo could be on his way to Stade de Reims on loan, according to the Echo.

Liverpool are working on a loan deal for the 21-year-old that would see him join the French club on a temporary basis and are hoping the move can be in place before Friday’s European transfer deadline passes.

Ojo has been pursued by several Championship sides this summer, including West Brom and Aston Villa, but it appears he is keen on a move to France. Reims were promoted to Ligue One last season and are seeking last-minute reinforcements to ensure they stay there – Ojo’s pace, power and attacking ability would all be welcome contributions for the club.

A move to Aston Villa fell apart for Ojo during the summer. He had previous loan spells at Wolves and Fulham, but Jurgen Klopp would perhaps prefer him to ply his trade overseas for the season in order to gain more varied experience.

Liverpool will look to seal loan deals for Lazar Markovic, Pedro Chrivella, and potentially Dominic Solanke and Divock Origi before Friday, though Klopp may prefer to retain Solanke and Origi as additional striking options.
