Liverpool have already signed a £ 2million deal with Preston North End to sign defender Ben Davies, who is due to undergo medical treatment on Monday

However, according to RMC Sport, Liverpool also signed a deal for Caleta-Car before Marseille pulled the plug on Sunday night

According to the report, the 24-year-old was ready to hop on a private jet to travel to England on Sunday after Liverpool offered Marseille € 23m

However, the French club ended negotiations believing they cannot sign a replacement for the 24-year-old before the transfer window closes

Caleta-Car was on the verge of closing a £ 22m deal with West Ham last summer but chose to stay in Marseille as he wanted to play for a club in the Champions League

When asked about the transfer situation in Liverpool after the 3-1 win against West Ham on Sunday, Jürgen Klopp said: “There is nothing to be said until something is done, and that is when something is done”’

Liverpool moved up to third place after beating West Ham and are four points behind leaders Manchester City, who also have a game in their hands
