Marc-Andre ter Stegen has been continually linked with a move to Liverpool since Klopp’s arrival, and there does appear to be genuine substance in the rumours.
The Barcelona goalkeeper is reportedly frustrated at only playing in the Champions League for the Catalan giants, and he would be a perfect upgrade on Simon Mignolet.

Although the 23-year-old is understandably a back-up for the incomparable Manuel Neuer for Germany, he may well be given some playing time in the next seven days.
The world champions face home games against England and Italy, on Saturday and Tuesday, respectively, and with Neuer the undisputed first-choice, Ter Stegen may want to be looked at by coach Joachim Low.
Reinforcements in midfield are something Klopp must address in the coming months, and Granit Xhaka is someone who fits the bill perfectly.
The Borussia Monchengladbach enforcer combines strength, intelligence, creativity and energy to great effect, and he would solve an issue that has hampered Liverpool even since Javier Mascherano’s exit in 2010.
Xhaka is arguably the first name on Switzerland’s team-sheet these days, and he comes up against Republic of Ireland and Bosnia during the international break.
It will provide Reds supporters with a good opportunity to see firsthand what the 23-year-old can bring to the table, should Klopp get his man.
