The Echo's report suggests that Liverpool find the £20 million price tag for Cologne's Jonas Hector too steep and that is one option that will not be pursued for now. What you might not know is that they're willing to offer Loïc Rémy to Everton as a sweetener to the £65m already on offer, and that Lukaku is reportedly on the verge of handing in an official transfer request.

Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell was Liverpool's initial target to challenge Moreno at left-back, but despite heavy Liverpool interest, the youngster signed a new five-year deal the King Power Stadium.

As noted in the report, Klopp had previously insisted that his work in the transfer market was done after what was a busy period for him with the arrival of several new players along with many heading in the opposite direction as he stamps his mark on the squad.

Southampton want to replace Victor Wanyama with Anderlecht's Steven Defour, who is keen to leave the Belgian runners-up after getting all manner of stick from his own fans. "I have no idea", Klopp said.

The former Spain international limped off in their 2-0 defeat against Roma during their pre-season tour of the USA, meaning that James Milner had to fulfil defensive duties.

"He added: "(Joe) Gomez, (Mamadou) Sakho and Lucas are all injured so of course we haven't got enough centre-backs at the moment.

Midfielder Lucas Leiva, who has been used as an auxiliary centre back by Klopp, is also currently sidelined by injury.

"I don't think so".

The position has been a problem for the club for some time, with few reassured by Alberto Moreno given his tendency to make costly mistakes.
