BARCELONA’S ploy to lure Jurgen Klopp to the Nou Camp could spell bad news for Liverpool fans.

The fallen giants recently appointed Ronald Koeman on a two-year deal following their 8-2 Champions League humiliation to Bayern Munich.

But Koeman is regarded as a short-term solution after presidential candidate Jordi Farre confirmed he wants Klopp to become the future boss.

Farre will hope to take over from Josep Maria Bartomeu when Barca’s presidential elections are held next year.

It could wreak havoc among the Premier League champions with Klopp likely to raid the team that has delivered him so much success.

Three players who could follow him to the Nou Camp include Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson and Mohamed Salah.

Barca are in the market for a central defender, left-back, central midfielder and a right winger as they plot a rebuild on the pitch.

Only a group core of seven players are NOT for sale with everyone else up for grabs.

Messi was named amongst Bartomeu’s seven despite speculation that he wants to leave.

Elsewhere, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Clement Lenglet, Nelson Semedo, Frenkie De Jong, Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele have been deemed off-limits.

Barcelona are planning to target Jurgen Klopp

 

And Klopp could also be tempted to lure Champions League winner Thiago back to Barcelona.

The Spaniard left Barca for Bayern Munich in 2013 but is available for £30million as he enters the final year of his contract.

Klopp is known to be a huge admirer of the 29-year-old.

Obviously everything depends on whether the German will take up a seat in the dugout at Barcelona.

Farre had told told Sport: “If Koeman works and does well, I would, of course [keep him].

“Obviously, we have our roadmap and we had already had several conversations with Jurgen Klopp, because it seems to us that Barcelona needs such a coach.”

In fact, Klopp has announced his plans to leave Anfield but not until 2024.
