beIn Sports USA claimed that the Reds were close to signing Gonzalo Higuaín, largely due to a photograph which spotted Jurgen Klopp supposedly sitting next to Nicolas Higuaín.
Nicolas is the brother and agent of Gonzalo, and it was reported that they sat together during the Copa America match between Chile and Argentina.
However later reports indicated that the man next to Klopp was instead his own son Marc Klopp, who bares a striking resemblance to Nicolas Higuaín.
The Liverpool manager is on a summer break in the United States where he is enjoying watching the Copa.
Liverpool have Daniel Sturridge, Danny Ings, Divock Origi and Robert Firmino to fill the striking positions, while Christian Benteke is expected to be sold along with Mario Balotelli.
