Jurgen Klopp hopes Nick Pope can answer Liverpool’s goalkeeping prayers.
The Kop boss wants competition for the job and will bid £15million for the Burnley ace.
Klopp axed Simon Mignolet last season while his successor Loris Karius endured a disaster in the Champions League final after he suffered concussion in the 3-1 loss to Real Madrid.
Pope — off to the World Cup with England — has two years left on his Clarets contract and would be far cheaper than the £70m touted for Brazil keeper Alisson at Roma.
And Burnley are unlikely to demand he stays given Tom Heaton has returned from shoulder surgery.
Lyon last night claimed to have ended negotiations with Liverpool over striker and skipper Nabil Fekir.
But said they “reserve the right” to hear offers from other European sides.
SunSport reported that Lyon have announced their star man will NOT be moving to Anfield after talks broke down.
The French star was on the brink of moving to the Champions League finalists, after a fee was agreed with the Ligue 1 club.
But the 24-year-old looks set to stay after Lyon released a statement claiming negotiations had collapsed.
It read: “Transfer negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil Fekir have not succeeded and Olympique Lyonnais has decided to put an end to this negotiation tonight.”
