Spanish outlet Diario Gol (h/t Daily Star) reported Liverpool are keen on Ramos, who is reportedly free to leave Real Madrid. The official UEFA Euro account recently attested to the kind of experienced star the Reds might be getting their hands on:

Ramos’ stock is said to have fallen at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, and according to the latest reports, club president Florentino Perez would consider selling his star while he can still get a “substantial fee” for his signature.
The 30-year-old is currently on the treatment table after injuring his knee on international duty, although there is evidence to suggest Real are better off without their club captain, via Bleacher Report UK:

Klopp has already invested in his defence this past summer, bringing in Joel Matip on a free transfer and Augsburg’s Ragnar Klavan for a little more than £4.2 million, although Ramos would require a much heftier sum.
McIlroy’s report mentioned the Reds “value Ramos’ experience and character,” but with the likes of Bayern Munich and PSG also said to be in the hunt, the English outfit could find themselves priced out of a move.
