Liverpool want Norwich City left-back and Tottenham Hotspur target Jamal Lewis

Klopp is reportedly impressed by Lewis' attitude and believes the player will be a great fit in his squad and has a great chance to develop alongside 21-year-old Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The Reds have identified Lewis as a target, but they have already had a bid worth £10m knocked back by Norwich, who value him at double that sum.

It has been reported that the Premier League champions have made an approach in regard to signing the 18-year-old forward.

Andy Robertson is the undisputed first choice to fill that role for the Reds, but there is little depth beyond him in that position on Merseyside.

"If the move goes through for Jamal it would be very exciting - it's a move that I wouldn't be able to turn down - going to the newly crowned Premier League champions".

"We need to be aware that we have the qualities to play this quarter-final, we need to give it our all, like we did tonight". Bartomeu though is not bothered by the speculations and believes that the Argentine knows that this is his club for life.

According to Sportime, meanwhile, Liverpool have approached Olympiakos about Tsimikas in case they can not sign Lewis from Norwich.

Baraclough also speaks to BBC Sport NI's Stephen Watson about the importance of Northern Ireland players playing at the highest possible club level, Oliver Norwood's continued absence from global football and the prospects for September's Nations League matches.

It is not expected that Liverpool will complete any blockbuster transfers this summer. "He's played to a standard that he's now a regular and they've been relegated", he added. There's a lot of interest in quite a few Norwich players following their relegation. It will be interesting to see if the club reaches Norwich's evaluation for Lewis who is valued at £20m.

Previously, Liverpool have abandoned deals if they can not do so, having snubbed Timo Werner earlier this year before Chelsea swooped in to sign the German striker. One thing that could help the deal would be if Yasser Larouchi was involved.

After playing the Championship for three straight seasons, Norwich City were promoted to the Premier League ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.
