After completely dominating throughout the entire season, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool squad is going to look almost entirely the same for the upcoming campaign.
The Reds have already secured the signings of Sepp Van der Berg and Harvey Elliott and extended Divock Origi’s contract, but it doesn’t look like the club is ready to make some big moves this summer.
Naturally, several Liverpool fans have been extremely worried about the club’s lack of signings this summer, however, Klopp isn’t worried at all, and made the most of the opportunity to take a slight shot at other big clubs that don’t always find success after spending a lot of cash:
“We are pretty relaxed in that, we will see what’s coming up,” he told Liverpool’s official website when quizzed on the club’s transfer plans. How I said, it will not be the biggest transfer window of LFC; we invested a lot in the team in the last two years, I would say. We cannot spend every year in the same manner.
People talk about it like, ‘Now another £300m or £200m’. There are maybe only two clubs in the world – it looks in the moment like Barcelona and (Real) Madrid can do the same – City and PSG that can do it every year.
But we are fine. I’m happy with the team, we are really happy. We have to see if we find maybe one position if we find something for it, but there’s no real pressure because it’s not about signing a player. We have solutions for all situations,” Klopp told Liverpool’s official website.
Liverpool had already made a lot of noise by bringing Alisson, Naby Keita, Virgil van Dijk, Xherdan Shaqiri, and Fabinho, but Klopp believes the team has more than enough depth to face the upcoming season without having to change its squad that much.
“I’m really looking forward to the season, it will be really exciting again,” he concluded.
