Liverpool could reportedly still sign Timo Werner from RB Leipzig, despite Chelsea supposedly reaching an agreement for the striker.
The Reds had been considered the strong favourites to land Germany international Werner, only for their Premier League rivals to pounce earlier this week.
Chelsea are rumoured to have triggered the 24-year-old's €60m (£53.8m) release clause and agreed personal terms with the player.
However, the transfer is not yet official and it has been suggested by transfer expert Ian McGarry that Liverpool may hijack the deal.
Speaking to the Transfer Window podcast, McGarry said: "It will be interesting to see how Jurgen Klopp responds to this setback, if indeed that is the case.
"Obviously Werner's yet to actually sign for Chelsea despite the clause being met.
"It is expected in some quarters that Liverpool may well make another bid having failed with an initial one around 16 days ago of €30m plus €15m in add-ons, which clearly is well below the rescission clause in Werner's contract.
"But certainly is potentially open to being upped and therefore giving Chelsea some competition."
Werner has been directly involved in 32 Bundesliga goals this season - second only to Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.
