Liverpool not interested in Barcelona pair Andre Gomes and Rafinha

02 August 2017

Manchester United and Liverpool will be expected to be among the teams vying for the Premier League title once the new season gets under way.

"He has picked up a very slight muscle injury", Klopp said.

Liverpool are set to face Bayern Munich in a high-profile friendly game in the Audi Cup tonight (August 1) and both sides will be looking to impress their fans ahead of the season. "The season is just around the corner now and we have to start going at full speed".

Last season, Andres Iniesta was yet again one of the most influential players for Barcelona but age is catching up to him and the club are, hence, seeking a younger alternative. "No, we aren't in the running for him", replied the German, "He's a good goalie but we have enough good goalies".

"Let's hope everything will work very well and that there isn't much more to improve". We have to work very hard and we're doing that and it's very important to see what we can achieve tomorrow, against Bayern.

Philippe Coutinho is not for sale.

It was a similar story with Leipzig's Naby Keita, who was courted recently by Liverpool, only for the Bundesliga club to turn down what the Sun says was a £70m offer from the Merseysiders.

Since rejecting a £72 million offer for Coutinho from the Catalan side last month, Liverpool have remained adamant that the Brazil worldwide will not be sold for any price.

Also, Lionel Messi reportedly told "close friends" that the Liverpool magician has already agreed to terms with Barcelona.

With reports suggesting it is increasingly likely Coutinho's compatriot Neymar is set to join Paris St Germain, Barcelona will have a hole to fill and, having identified the Reds playmaker as the ideal replacement, another bid can not be ruled out.

Dybala has a close relationship with Lionel Messi, who he texts and plays computer games with regularly, but 20-year-old Dembele is now seen as much easier to purchase, and likely cheaper at around £70m.
