Jurgen Klopp ‘happy’ with his Liverpool squad… but doesn’t rule out further transfer activity before the deadline

Posted by

Jurgen Klopp has refused to rule out the possibility of Liverpool adding to their squad before the transfer deadline.

Liverpool have been relatively inactive in the transfer market this summer, with the acquisition of Ibrahima Konate, signing from RB Leipzig before the window even opener, their sole arrival to date.

Considering the Reds lost Gini Wijnaldum on a free transfer, with the Dutch international being such a key figure under Klopp’s stewardship, you’d expect them to sign a new midfielder before the end of the month.

While Klopp can give no guarantees, and insists he is content with his squad as it is, he has refused to rule out Liverpool dipping into the transfer market again before the deadline.

He’s quoted by the Daily Mail saying:

“I am very happy with the squad, but it doesn’t mean that we don’t look at the market. But as long as nothing happens, I am more than happy with the squad I have. I am more than happy with the players I have.”

“We have so many things that you cannot sign. You cannot sign our counter-pressing, you cannot sign our atmosphere that we create in the stadium, you cannot sign Anfield, you cannot sign our anthem.”

Jurgen Klopp is doing a good job of pretending he’s happy with Liverpool’s squad

“You cannot sign a lot of things and that’s what we have to use. There are other approaches out there, obviously, and we have influence on that. Our situation is like it is.”

“We have a big squad and there might be something happening until the end of the transfer window, but I cannot say anything about that at the moment.”

There have been suggestions that Liverpool will have to sell before they buy again. Any further additions could depend on whether they can shift the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi.
