Because of injuries to Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, and Fabinho, the side of Jurgen Klopp is keen to sign a centre-back before the trade deadline of Monday.
And Liverpool was very keen to sign Caleta-Car.
They evem reached a deal with the French club over a transfer, the Daily Mirror notes.
This weekend, in fact, the 24-year-old was then set to travel to England to put pen to paper on a deal with the Anfield club.
