But questions remain over their depth in the centre of defence with Fabinho forced to fill in in admirably in their 2-0 victory over Chelsea.

And Le Parisien (via Get Football News) are claiming the Reds are looking to hijack Man City’s move for Koulibaly from Napoli.

The Senegalese has reportedly agreed a provisional contract with Pep Guardiola’s side but Klopp is attempting a last gasp bid to change his mind.

The report claims Liverpool will use compatriot Sadio Mane to convince the £70m-rated star to move to Anfield over Man City.

Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with Koulibaly but do not have the required funds to meet Napoli’s demands.
