Jurgen Klopp has delivered a transfer update and explained why Liverpool are unlikely to sign any more players in this window.

The German explained that he is happy with the squad that won the Reds their sixth ever Champions League trophy at the beginning of June.

Klopp told Liverpool’s official club website: “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.”

“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 the situations.”

Liverpool have already completed the signing of PEC Zwolle central defender Sepp van den Berg this summer, with the 17-year-old expected to be followed through the Anfield door by Fulham youngster Harvey Elliot, with Goal reporting that the Reds have beaten Arsenal and Manchester City to his signature.

OPINION

Many Liverpool fans will have been hoping for better news on the transfer front, but the reality of the fact is, their club are European champions. Their current squad has more than proved themselves to be more than just competitors in the previous couple of years, finishing only a point behind Manchester City in the Premier League last season. Liverpool spent £167.9million last year, the only top-flight club to have a net spend over £100million, which is maybe one of the reasons Klopp would like a more relaxed summer [Sportskeeda]. Klopp is right to keep faith in his squad, who have more than proved themselves as capable in his quest to bring the first-ever Premier League title to the Anfield club. The only area they may need to improve is left-back, with Andrew Robertson the only recognised left-sided defender in the squad after Alberto Moreno’s release. The reality is, is that the Reds don’t need to strengthen much, with David Maddock reporting that the only senior move the club could make this summer is to bring in another winger. Any other move would be a surprise, with Klopp looking more than likely to back his squad which delivered so much success last term.
