Some Liverpool fans have been mocking Stan Collymore’s claim that the Reds are eyeing up a summer move for Aston Villa star Jack Grealish.
The former Liverpool striker took to Twitter on Sunday to state that Grealish is one of four top players Jurgen Klopp could be looking to bring in at the end of the season.
The 25-year-old was joined on the shortlist by Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland, Barcelona wonderkid Ansu Fati and AZ Alkmaar youngster Myron Boadu, with Collymore claiming the quartet were of interest to the Reds.
LFC front 3 have won the lot and may fancy Madrid, Bayern or Juve for a new challenge
So don't discount an overhaul being at least being whispered at LFC.
Haaland, Grealish, Fati ( Barca completely skint) Boadu ( couple of Dutch coaches i know love this kid) all on a list.

With regards to Grealish, the 25-year-old is having an exceptional season for Villa, scoring six goals and registering 10 assists in the Premier League to date.
He is a hugely talented player who has dragged his side through some matches, possessing great dribbling ability, an underrated turn of pace and quality in the final third.
A number of Liverpool fans aren’t convinced that a bid is on the way for Grealish, however, playing down Collymore’s comments on Twitter.
Liverpool are not signing Jack Grealish. For starters he’d cost too much. Villa don’t need the money and Liverpool have little of it.
Secondly, didn’t Klopp struggle to find a fixed role for Coutinho? And Grealish is essentially a lesser Phil. https://t.co/2rDEGf12FF

Even if we could afford him, I reckon he wouldn’t want to leave villa
