And it seems as though Klopp has his heart set on one signing in particular to help freshen up his options in the final third.
Kingsley Coman on Liverpool radar
Le 10 Sport claims that the Reds are in the hunt to sign the 34-capped France international.
Coman is out of contract in two years time. And he is allegedly refusing to sign a new one with Bayern Munich.
The 25-year-old is valued at around £60 million by Bayern (Goal).

Coman would be a truly brilliant signing for Liverpool.
He has bagged 41 goals and 50 assists in 203 games for Bayern. The Frenchman is incredibly quick, powerful and possesses truly outstanding technique.
He is an experienced winner as well with 10 league titles and a Champions League winner’s medal to his name.
Whether FSG will be prepared to pay £60 million in order to secure Coman’s signature remains to be seen.
The 25-year-old is undoubtedly a world-class player, however. He would certainly be worth that kind of money for Liverpool.
