Despite many rumours linking the 24-year-old with a move to Anfield, the Reds have seemingly decided to pull out of the deal, with Chelsea now reportedly favourites to sign the clinical forward and take him to London.

Due to financial constraints amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the former Borussia Dortmund manager believes activating the forward's reported £49.4 million (R1 billion) release clause would be financially immoral.

"How do I discuss with the players about things like salary waivers and on the other hand buy a player for £50-60 million – we'd have to explain," Klopp said, as per the Metro.

"If you want to take it seriously and run a normal business, you depend on income.

"And we have no idea how much the club will earn – especially because we don't know when we can start playing in front of spectators again.

"At the moment, without spectators, we have to pay back on season tickets and probably sell none next year.
