Left-back Gael Clichy is not a target for Jurgen Klopp this summer following the expiration of his contract at Manchester City, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The local news outlet moved quick to quash rumours after the Sun reported on Tuesday evening that the Merseyside giants had offered the 31-year-old a two-year contract.

It is stated by the Echo in their live Wednesday blog (8.00am) that while Klopp is keen to add a new left-back to his squad this summer, Clichy is not thought to be one of his options.

The Reds have been linked with a number of left sided defenders this summer with the club playing out the majority of the season season with usual midfielder James Milner in the position due to the defensive frailties of Spaniard Alberto Moreno.

Now, 18-time capped France international Clichy certainly boasts a fine CV, having won the Premier League title three times with both Arsenal and Manchester City since moving across to England in 2003 from French side Cannes.

He has also made 325 Premier League appearances during his 14-year stay in the English top-flight, but he is now unlikely to add to those with Liverpool.

Klopp will currently be scouring the transfer market for players who he feels can push his side up the league table while also competing in the Champions League next season.
