Jurgen Klopp told the Liverpool Echo that he and his transfer team are still assessing whether or not to make new signings before the transfer window slams shut.

After back to back defeats in pre-season, it seems as though Klopp might be shifting on his attitude to making signings this summer even if only marginally.

The German has now twice admitted that he is looking at making a signing or two and it bodes well for supporters that are desperate to see Klopp add to his ranks.

He told the Echo: “We are still looking, but it will not be the (biggest) transfer window of LFC. It just will be a transfer window. We will see what we do, and if we haven’t done anything by the end it will be for different reasons.

“It’s about using this team. In the transfer window, you have to build a team that you think you want to go into the season with. But I have that team already.


“If we can bring somebody else in that makes it even better, we will see. But if not, this team is already there. And again we will have to find solutions at different moments.”

While Klopp is hardly committing himself to anything, he certainly seems to be hinting that he is looking at adding a name or two to his side even if the Reds aren’t set to match the £177m spent last summer.

The two areas of the squad that could use a fresh face is at left-back and in attack after Alberto Moreno and Daniel Sturridge were released after the expiry of their contracts at the start of the summer.

They weren’t exactly key figures last season but they did provide Klopp with peace of mind as it meant that if Andy Robertson or Roberto Firmino were injured, he had options in reserve to consider.

The next two weeks will certainly be interesting and even if no new signings are made then at least Premier League football is back at the start of August!
