Jurgen Klopp Claims That Liverpool Dont Want More Players Because He Is Confident In His Current Squad

Juergen Klopp has stated that Liverpool ‘does not want more players’ ahead of the new season, claiming that it ‘does not make sense’ because he believes in his present group.
Liverpool have been notoriously quiet in the transfer market this summer, only bringing in center-back Ibrahima Konate for PS36 million from RB Leipzig.
In that time, Klopp has also lost first-team regular Georginio Wijnaldum to PSG on a free transfer.
Klopp is particularly concerned about Andy Robertson’s ankle ligament damage suffered in the 1-1 friendly against Athletic Bilbao, which will keep him out for at least a few weeks.
Juergen Klopp has stated that Liverpool ‘do not want further players’ in the transfer season, claiming that more additions’makes no sense’ and that he is satisfied with his current team. However, the Reds have been connected with several potential new arrivals before the window closes, most notably midfielder Renato Sanches, who might be a like-for-like replacement for Wijnaldum.
‘When the transfer window opens in the summer, everyone anticipates certain player signings,’ Klopp said on TV2.
‘Let’s see what happens.’
‘Let’s have a look at the team.’
Are you in the market for a new full-back?
A new goalkeeper, perhaps?
There are already several good players on the team.
Liverpool’s only summer addition is former RB Leipzig centre-back Ibrahima Konate (centre). ‘In midfield, we have players with a lot of experience, such as Thiago, Fabinho, (Jordan) Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Naby Keita.
‘We also have two fascinating young boys in Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones,’ says the coach.
Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Xherdan Shaqiri, Takumi Minamino, and Divock Origi make up the attack.
I’m sure I’ve forgotten someone.’ Klopp went on to make a pointed remark about the massive sums being spent in the summer season, implying that signing quality players is a difficult ask.
The return of Virgil van Dijk (left) and Joe Gomez (right) has bolstered Liverpool. Given that Manchester City and Chelsea paid PS100 million and PS98 million for Jack Grealish and Romelu Lukaku, respectively, Klopp’s claim is scarcely controversial.
Yet, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers reiterated his belief that his roster already possesses sufficient talent.
‘You have to pay a lot of money to buy such (top-class) players.’
We don’t need to do that because all of the players have already arrived.
‘You have to make adjustments from time to time, but there must be room to do it,’ said Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson, who suffered an ankle injury against Athletic Bilbao.
We don’t want any more players in the game.
If anything occurs here, it can happen anywhere else, but adding more players makes no sense.’ Liverpool kick off their Premier League season against newly promoted Norwich City, with Klopp’s squad boosted by the return of long-term absentees Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is also back to full fitness after missing England’s Euro 2020 team due to a quad injury.
