But the Liverpool Echo claims he will now pursue Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain after the return of Champions League football to Anfield.

RB Leipzig ace Keita is valued at a whopping £70million and is believed to be angling for a move away from Germany, although his club do not want to sell under any circumstances.

While Arsenal contract rebel Oxlade-Chamberlain is also a target for Premier League champions Chelsea.

But if Liverpool get their way, they will end up signing both players this summer.

James Pearce, from the Liverpool Echo, said: “Oxlade-Chamberlain isn’t viewed as being the back-up option to Keita.

“Liverpool have interest in both and getting Keita wouldn’t necessarily mean they don’t pursue Oxlade-Chamberlain.

“The situation with Oxlade-Chamberlain is that Liverpool made an enquiry to Arsenal a while back and were told he wasn’t available. Clearly, a lot hinges on what happens over his contract.

“If the stand-off over a new deal continues then Arsenal will reluctantly sell. If they are listening to offers then I’d expect Liverpool to make one.

“What makes me doubt whether Oxlade-Chamberlain to Anfield will happen is guarantees over game time. I think he’d be an excellent squad player for Liverpool but I wouldn’t say he walked into the side.”
