Ragnar Klavan could be on his way out of Liverpool this month.
Estonian centre-back Klavan, who arrived at Anfield in 2016, has fallen down the pecking order at Liverpool.
And, according to the Liverpool Echo, Jurgen Klopp is willing to listen to offers for the 32-year-old defender.
Newcastle had attempted to sign Klavan before the Premier League’s transfer window closed on Thursday.
But Klopp was concerned about a lack of options in the middle of his defence.
Since then, Joel Matip has returned to training and Dejan Lovren, who has a pelvic problem, is only expected to be out for a few weeks.

That has seen Klavan become surplus to requirement in Klopp’s eyes.
The Estonia international will need to return to fitness himself, though, having recently struggled with a hamstring problem.
In his two years at Anfield, he has made 53 appearances for Liverpool and has only one year left on his contract.
Klopp’s team, meanwhile, had a flying start to the new Premier League season.
They thumped West Ham 4-0 with Mohamed Salah off the mark already, Sadio Mane grabbing two goals and Daniel Sturridge adding a fourth.
