It's fair to say that a report in today's Sunday Times has left Liverpool fans rather bemused.
Journalist Duncan Castles, as you can see by his tweet below, has suggested that defender Nathaniel Clyne is understood to be dissatisfied with his status at Liverpool under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp.
Clyne, 25, played a prominent role on Merseyside last term, but Castles claims that La Liga giants Barcelona were informally offered the opportunity to secure the England international's services.

Ultimately, though, the Catalans, who lost full-back Dani Alves to Juventus earlier on in this transfer window, turned down the opportunity to sign him.
As you can imagine, then, Liverpool fans have duly reacted to the report and suggested that the claim is, well, a load of rubbish.
First thing's first, here's the tweet from Castles:
And here's how fans have reacted:
After enduring a great deal of criticism from the Liverpool faithful, Castles once again took to Twitter to back up his claim.
Castles stated that Liverpool fans previously believed that ex-players Fernando Torres, Luis Suarez and Raheem Sterling were all happy on Merseyside.
It will certainly be interesting to see if this story develops, but Liverpool fans appear to be very confident that Clyne is happy at their club.
