‘It will not be a busy summer’ – Liverpool boss Klopp on transfers ahead of the transfer window
Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool already have a squad capable of building on their remarkable recent success.
Liverpool are now the Champions League and Premier League Champions after a remarkable 12 months which has seen them become one of the best sides in the game right now, but there has been talk that a number of players could be signed.
It is believed that Klopp was keen to improve on a number of areas on the pitch, as he looks to stay ahead of Manchester City in the Premier League next season, but that could all change this summer.
Klopp, speaking to reporters on Monday afternoon, admitted it was unlikely that there would be a major spending spree from the newly-crowned champions, insisting that they would instead look to work with what they already have, including a hugely-talented crop of youngsters.
He said: “Covid has of course influenced both sides with ins and outs, that is completely normal.
“It’s just not likely that it will be the most busy summer in the world. But maybe at a later point in the year, if the transfer window is still open and we know more, then maybe something could happen.
“I am very confident that we can keep the team together, but all the rest of the planning is ongoing without knowing. We have no idea at the moment. I don’t know when the new season will start. Nobody knows how the future will be, which is very strange.
“Three months ago nobody knew anything about how it would be and now we act a little bit like everything will be fine again. It is a little bit early to guess that.
“And in football now we get confronted with how much do you want to spend? How much can you spend if you don’t know how much you can have? That is exactly the situation.
“We all will pay a bill in the end. It’s not only football. Hopefully it is over soon but nobody knows exactly how big the bill will be.
“I think it’s completely normal that this is a moment we wait a little bit longer with some decisions or just say ‘we pause and try it again like this’. We should not start taking for granted it all will be fine.”
