The Sunday Mirror claimed at the weekend that the versatile Wijnaldum, capable of being deployed in multiple roles in the middle of the park, will cost Barca around £15m.
If the player does move to Spain, Liverpool could look to launch a move for Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara to replace him.
Klopp has been widely linked with a move for the 29-year-old former Barca ace, whose contract with the German champions expires next summer.
Bayern’s price tag – which is just shy of £30m – has so far proven prohibitive even though Liverpool have only made one signing this summer in left-back Kostas Tsimikas, whose £11.75m arrival was offset by Dejan Lovren’s £10.9m move to Zenit St Petersburg.
Asked about Thiago in July, Klopp labelled the Spain international “a great player”.
And last month he added of the midfielder: “There are a lot of interesting players out there but if someone is interesting for us I can’t say right now.
“Due to Covid-19 you have to think five times about what you can and what you can’t do.
