Coady, a Liverpool fan who came through their youth ranks, was teased by Carragher following Wolves' 1-0 win at Leeds United on Monday.
The Sky Sports pundit joked that Klopp is eyeing the England international as a replacement for Van Dijk, who suffered an ACL injury during the Merseyside derby.
From the studio, Carragher told Coady: "You won't be aware but Jurgen Klopp tonight has done his Champions League press conference ahead of the game with Ajax.
"He's actually mentioned you and two other players who he thinks could actually be replacements for Virgil van Dijk, would that come into your thinking?"
Coady brilliantly batted away his transfer claim: "I can't believe you've just put this on me here, no!
"I can't believe it. Not at all, I love playing for this football club every single day.
"We've just beat Leeds in an amazing, amazing game."
Carragher then added: "You must be honoured though, with Klopp saying that?"
Coady replied: "Listen, you know what I'm like mate!"
Monday Night Football host Dave Jones weighed in: "Conor, don't believe a word he is saying. Don't get dragged into that honestly!"

He helped his side win promotion to the Premier League in 2018 and has been an ever present at the back, starting every single game in the top flight.
