Lucas is again being linked with a move away from Paris as Liverpool continue in their attempts to strengthen their squad ahead of the start of the 2016/17 season and jumps into top spot for Thursday.

The Brazilian netted 13 times in 55 games for Paris Saint-Germain last season, but that impressive form has not stopped him climbing Liverpool's Football Whispers list.

The 22-year-old Netherlands international is a former team-mate of Liverpool's newest signing, Georginio Wijnaldum and his Football Whisper ranking is still strong.

Willems tweeted Wijnaldum wishing him all the best and said that he'll be seeing him soon, which has got tongues wagging about whether Klopp is about to make an offer for the player.

According to De Telegraaf, Monaco are also keeping tabs on Willems.

3. Joao Mario (Sporting) - 3.2

The 23-year-old moves into the top three with Portuguese newspaper Diario de Noticias claiming Liverpool have had a €40m bid rejected for the Sporting midfielder.

Mario caught the eye with his performances during Euro 2016, helping Portugal win the trophy.

Chelsea were reportedly interested but now it appears Jurgen Klopp will battle the Blues for the Portugal international's signature.
