Liverpool's first choice is Oblak but the Spanish club have slapped a £80million price tag on their goalkeeper which the English club do not want to match.
The Reds have already signed another of his compatriots, Monaco midfielder Fabinho, in a £39 million deal, with the 24-year-old explaining how Firmino's influence was key. Loris Karius may never recover from his Champions League nightmare while Simon Mignolet simply isn't good enough. The Reds have always been linked with the Brazilian stopper.
"No progress with keeper search for Liverpool", reports the Mirror's David Maddock.
It sounds like Klopp faces quite the challenge to sign a world-class goalkeeper, but fortunately for him he has Roberto Firmino scouting the field on worldwide duty.

"Yes, he asked me about Liverpool", said Firmino.
"I hope he can come here but I know he has other proposals".
Firmino says he wishes Fred well at United, but said the rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester United precludes him from wishing Fred too well.
Alisson, if Roma are interested in letting him go, would be a very highly sought after player in the summer transfer market.
"From time to time I will give him a pinch to come to Liverpool and help us, but it's with his agents. His agent is sorting his future but it wouldn't be a bad thing to have him here at Liverpool", Firmino said while on global duty with one of the clubs considered to be a favorite at this year's tournament.
