Barca on Thursday completed the signing of Paulinho from Guangzhou Evergrande Taboao, while Dembele and Coutinho have been identified as targets following Neymar's world-record move to Paris Saint-Germain.

"You can imagine, in general, I think for each player Liverpool is a very good club, a very good team in the moment".

But Klopp said: "I don't see a lot of reasons for each player to leave the club at the moment, and that's just in general".

Barcelona may have been beaten by Real Madrid in Wednesday night's Spanish Super Cup but the Daily Mail reports that the Catalan club are increasingly confident of success in their pursuit of Philippe Coutinho.

"You can not change a natural footballing side that goes forward, but we know we have to mix that with a good defensive, aggressive spirit to make sure they don't score the goals".

After drawing their opening game of the Premier League campaign, Liverpool will be hoping to register their first win of the season at home to the Eagles, who suffered a heavy defeat to newly-promoted Huddersfield last weekend.

"I don't know why other people are saying what they are saying; I don't even know them - especially this guy, I've never even met him".

"Sergio Aguero is another player that might be interested if he's not happy at Manchester City, but it comes back to being late in the window and that is the hard situation Liverpool find themselves in".

Spanish pundit says no talks planned between Liverpool and Barcelona.

"Why? Because the market is where clubs like us want to sign top quality players".

At 24, Rafinha needs to be on the pitch as much as possible, getting consistent minutes in his best position.

"Coutinho and Dembele are both close", Segura told TV3. We came back yesterday and had a little session, and it was an intense game in Hoffenheim so we have one or two little things with players which we have to see.
