Liverpool have no plans to make a move for £65million-rated Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt this summer.

However, the ECHO understands that is not the case and that Liverpool are not trying to secure the services of De Ligt.

Jürgen Klopp is happy with his centre-back options and isn't looking to strengthen his squad in that department.
