Gary Neville's reaction
"Jurgen Klopp wouldn't sign Lukaku in a million years. Neither would probably Pep Guardiola but Chelsea are the club that have had that type of striker.
"A Costa, a Drogba, a single point striker, that physical presence that wants to carry that line. They've had that in their armoury for 20 years. It suits Chelsea Football Club. He wouldn't press from the front so he'd never suit Jurgen Klopp.''
