Jurgen Klopp drops hint about Liverpool FC summer signings
Jurgen Klopp suggests that Liverpool FC will not necessarily be spending big this summer
Jurgen Klopp has suggested that Liverpool FC will not be spending big on new signings in the summer transfer window.
The Reds have been in superb form this season and have established themselves as one of the main challengers for the Premier League title alongside Manchester City as they chase their first trophy under Klopp.
The Merseyside outfit did not bring in any new players in the January transfer window and the Reds are bound to be linked with a number of new signings when the summer transfer window opens.
Liverpool FC have spent big on a number of players in recent years to support Klopp in his bid to guide the Reds to their first ever Premier League title.
The club announced record financial results last week, but Klopp has suggested that the positive figures will not necessarily lead to more spending on transfers this summer.
Speaking at a news conference at Melwood on Friday, Klopp – whose side beat Bournemouth 3-0 on Saturday – hinted that the £125m profit before tax last year may not affect their transfer spending at all.
Klopp said: “I’m not a massive numbers guy. [Liverpool FC director] Mike Gordon didn’t jump on me this morning and say the numbers are outstanding and let’s spend all the money.
“We didn’t just earn a lot, we spent some too in the last couple of years.
“It was always clear we had to change things for the better, and that’s what we did.
“We built a really strong squad for the future, unfortunately they are not all available at the moment. It’s a pretty strong squad built for the future an not only for the season.
“I hope we don’t need too much money [for signings] in the next few years. If you have the right players in, you work with them and make the best of it.”
Liverpool FC have a week off before their crunch Champions League showdown against Bayern Munich in the last 16 on Tuesday 19 February.
