Manchester City, Manchester United and Inter Milan, among others, have reportedly expressed an interest in snapping up the six-time Ballon d'Or winner.

But don't expect the Premier League champions to make an offer for the superstar forward as Klopp has ruled out the transfer.

He states the numbers "are not for us" with the German stating that Messi moving to England would be a great addition to the league.

"It will obviously help Man City and make it more difficult to beat them," he explained.

"For the Premier League, it would be great that would help but I am not sure the Premier League needs that boost.

"He's never played in another league. Football is different here. I'd like to see it. Not sure I will."

When asked if Liverpool are interested, Klopp replied: "Interest from Liverpool? Who doesn't want him? But no chance. The numbers are not for us. It is all clear. But a good player, to be honest."

Liverpool's rivals Man City are thought to be in pole position to secure his services.

The Blues have so far signed Nathan Ake and Ferran Torres as they look to close the gap on Liverpool.

The Reds, on the other hand, have signed just one player in the shape of Kostas Tsimikas who arrived at Anfield for £11.75 million from Olympiacos.

Meanwhile, Liverpool face Arsenal in the Community Shield on Saturday.
