Klopp reveals shock transfer decision?

English Premier League

With the 2021/22 Premier League season set to kick off this weekend, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has made a rather surprising statement about the club's transfer plans.  

The Anfield side has made just one signing in this window to date, bringing in Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig after triggering his £36 million (R733 million) release clause in May.

However, despite losing many of their stars through injury last season, that defensive reinforcement is the only new addition to the Reds squad so far in this window.

The club has also lost Georginio Wijnaldum, who has joined Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent, but it seems Klopp has no plans to find a replacement despite being linked with several midfielders including Florian Neuhaus, Youri Tielemans, Otavio, and Saul Niguez.   

"It is summer and the transfer window is open, then everyone expects some player signings. We will see what happens," the German told Norwegian broadcaster TV2. 

"Let's go through the squad. Do you want to buy a new fullback? A new goalkeeper? We already have good players there.

"In midfield, we have players with a lot of experience, such as Thiago, Fabinho, [Jordan] Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Naby Keita. In addition, we have exciting young boys in Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones. 

"In the attack, we have Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Xherdan Shaqiri, Takumi Minamino, and Divock Origi.

"I've definitely forgotten someone… If you want to buy such players, you have to spend a lot of money. We do not have to do that, because the players are already here.

"You have to make changes from time to time, but then there must be room to do it. We do not want more players. 

"If something happens somewhere, something can happen somewhere else, but it makes no sense to add more players."
