Liverpool are monitoring Leicester youngster Demarai Gray as Jürgen Klopp seeks to add more pace to his attack ahead of next season.

Gray interested Liverpool when he was at Birmingham City, but the Merseysiders opted not to compete for his signature last season as they were hoping Jordon Ibe would develop.

Now the 20-year-old is back on the radar having continued to impress with the champions since his £3.7 million move. However, he is thought to be one of several potential targets.

Klopp, meanwhile, is weighing up whether to recall Loris Karius for the visit of Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Simon Mignolet’s errors against Chelsea and Hull City have revived the debate about who should be the Anfield No 1.

Tottenham will be without defenders Danny Rose and Jan Vertonghen for Saturday's Premier League game against Liverpool.

Rose has injured his knee and Vertonghen is still recovering from an ankle problem, meaning Ben Davies and Eric Dier are expected to continue in defence.

Erik Lamela is still struggling with pain in his hip but Kieran Trippier is available again after overcoming an injury to his ankle.
