The Reds squared off against Sevilla at St. Jacob-Park in Basel yesterday evening, with the Europa League trophy and Champions League qualification for the 2016/17 campaign on the line.
They opened the scoring courtesy of a Daniel Sturridge curler but a Sevilla comeback eventually saw the Merseyside outfit suffer a 3-1 defeat in Switzerland.
However, The Telegraph claim Jurgen Klopp remains convinced failure to qualify for Europe’s top tournament won’t affect the club’s transfer plans, particularly in regards to priority target Mario Gotze.
The Liverpool boss is confident the German international will join him at Anfield next season, with his troubled Bayern Munich spell seemingly certain to come to an end this summer.
The attacking midfielder was deemed one of the most exciting youngsters in world football whilst playing under Klopp at Borussia Dortmund, winning two Bundesliga titles and reaching the 2013 Champions League final together.
