Cape Town - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has quashed reports that they have agreed a deal for Lyon forward Nabil Fekir and are keen on Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele.

Reports in France on Sunday claimed Liverpool were ready to pay £63 million to sign Fekir.

But Reds boss Klopp insists the France international is not on his radar.

Klopp's comments came after Lyon owner Jean-Michel Aulas denied that Fekir was set to move to Anfield.

"During the game we agreed a deal? I would be surprised about that," Klopp said.

Meanwhile, Dembele only joined Barca from Borussia Dortmund last year and Klopp admitted he would be surprised if the France star was available to sign.

"Who was the second name? Ousmane Dembele. He's on the market? Now I'm interested," Klopp joked.

"You know I never comment on transfer rumours."

Liverpool were lethargic over the weekend against Chelsea as the London side held on for a 1-0 victory at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
