Jurgen Klopp provides latest Liverpool transfer update
Jurgen Klopp has provided an update on Liverpool's transfer plans for the rest of the summer window
Jurgen Klopp has expressed his satisfaction at Liverpool’s transfer business so far this summer and has revealed that the Reds are still open to signing more players.
The Merseyside outfit agreed deals to sign Red Star Belgrade playmaker Marko Grujic and Schalke defender Joel Matip in the January transfer window before the pair linked up with Klopp’s Liverpool squad for pre-season training last week.
The Reds manager’s first deal of the summer was completed in May after the 18-time English champions snapped up Germany and Mainz shot stopper Loris Karius in a £4.7m deal.
Liverpool signed Southampton forward Sadio Mane earlier this month as Klopp added more flair and pace to his squad ahead of his first full season in charge at Anfield.
The 49-year-old former Borussia Dortmund manager discussed the prospect of Liverpool making some more additions to their squad ahead of the 2016/17 Premier League campaign.
“We are quite ambitious and we want to reach a lot,” Klopp is quoted as saying by Daily Star.
“We try to find our players, we try to find Liverpool players who want to play and we don’t have to convince with money.
“We want to convince them because of the club, because of the atmosphere in Liverpool, because of Anfield, because of the position of the club, because of the chance to create something special in the future. Now we will go on.
“I would be really happy if the transfer window was thinking and I could say ‘here is the squad’
“But it’s not a wish contest. Everything is good until now. We have finished the first week, now we look forward.”
The Reds finished in eighth place in the Premier League table in 2015/16 season.
Klopp led Liverpool to the League Cup and Europa League finals last term but the Merseyside outfit lost to Manchester City and Sevilla in the showpieces.
