Juve are currently on the search for a new manager after Massimiliano Allegri was sacked – despite winning five successive Serie A titles at the Allianz Stadium.
Klopp, Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino and Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola have all been linked with the vacancy in Turin.
And ahead of Liverpool’s Champions League final against Tottenham on Saturday, which is LIVE on talkSPORT, Klopp said: “Yes, of course Serie A is very attractive as a championship.
“There is nothing true, however, in the rumours that would tie me to Juventus.
“I hear some journalists talking about it but it’s bull****. Italy is beautiful, I do not know the atmosphere of the games, however, because I have only seen the matches on television.

“Sometimes even without sound because I am only interested in the game and other aspects. Certainly Serie A is an attractive league.”
Klopp is not the first Premier League manager to rule himself out of a move to Italy.
Guardiola, who won a historic domestic treble with City in the 2018/19 season, committed his future to the Etihad amid reported Juventus interest.
