Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel is interested in signing Liverpool star Roberto Firmino but the Reds hierarchy will refuse to sell the South American forward.

The South American has been lined up as a successor for Edinson Cavani, who could depart the French giants in summer.

The 27-year-old Firmino joined the Reds back in 2015 in a £30m deal from Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim but he is yet to win a title at Anfield.

Liverpool can of course end that wait in the UEFA Champions League final in the capital of Spain, Madrid against Tottenham Hotspur but that will not stop Paris Saint-Germain from making a move.

The German tactician is said to be a big admirer of Firmino and is prepared to move for him but the BBC state Liverpool won’t listen to offers.

Firmino is considered an integral component of Jurgen Klopp’s forward line and few strikers in world football can match his work-rate.

The technically gifted player signed a new five-year contract with the Reds in 2018 and is content at the club.

Liverpool are said to have a quiet transfer market after a record outlay the previous summer but Klopp will be handed the necessary funds to bring in long-term targets.

Meantime, Liverpool are tracking three stars from Lyon ahead of possible transfer moves, according to the Mirror.

Anfield scouts watched Les Gones’ 3-0 win versus Marseille at the Stade Velodrome, in which Moussa Dembele and Maxine Cornet (2) scored.

And reports have appeared suggesting Reds delegations were in attendance to oversee central midfielder Houssem Aouar, as well as Memphis Depay and Tanguy Ndombele.
