Recent reports suggested that Liverpool have opened discussions with Ajax over the transfer of Matthijs de Ligt.
However, according to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds have no plans to make a move for the teenager over the summer.
Manchester City and Manchester United are both interested in the Dutch teenager, however, it appears as if Barcelona are the front runners to secure de Ligt’s services this summer.
The same story goes on to add that boss Jurgen Klopp is happy with his four central defensive options in Virgil van Dijk, Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez.
Klopp is hoping to add more defensive cover in the full-back areas, along with a versatile attacker, with both Alberto Moreno and Daniel Sturridge set for summer Anfield exits.
Both Moreno and Sturridge’s contracts expire next month and the pair are set to leave on a free transfer, however, it appears as if Klopp won’t be strengthening in the centre-back department following the latest news.
Reasons why signing a centre-back isn't a priority for Klopp
Joel Matip produced a series of consistent performances towards the end of the Premier League season as the Reds finished on a remarkable 97 points.
At the age of 21, Joe Gomez has a bright future in front of him. Klopp may be considering the Englishman as the Reds’ long-term partner for Virgil van Dijk.
Strengthen in other areas
As mentioned, Klopp could use the funds available to him over the summer in bringing in an attacking option, along with cover for both Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Not too many additions
One or two additions in the right areas could be the right mix for another Premier League title hunt next season for Klopp and his side.
