That is despite Liverpool reportedly agreeing a fee for the centre-half.

Caleta-Car’s partner Adriana Durdevic, even hinted at the move on social media as she posted a video with Liverpool’s famous Beatles song ‘All You Need Is Love’.

Jurgen Klopp is in desperate need of cover at the back, with Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez still out injured.

Joel Matip briefly returned, but picked up an ankle knock which forced him out of Liverpool’s 3-1 win at West Ham.

Midfielders Jordan Henderson and Fabinho have both been forced to cover at centre-back.

Despite Caleta-Car’s move facing concerns, Liverpool have signed Ben Davis in a shock £2million move from Preston.
