After a record-breaking 2018/19 season, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that there are not too many holes to plug in his side and as a result, the Reds are unlikely to remain active in the ongoing transfer window.
Liverpool ended the 2018/19 campaign agonizingly short of top-spot, finishing just one point behind champions Manchester City.
They more than made amends for that by lifting the Champions League trophy in fine fashion, overcoming challenges posed by Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and Tottenham.
Jurgen Klopp confirms Liverpool will not make signings this summer
The Reds made a number of signings last season and Klopp feels that should hold them in good stead heading into the new campaign as well.
Moreover, the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Rhian Brewster among others are set to return, adding to their strength in depth.
“We brought them already. Oxlade-Chamberlain, Rhian Brewster, they didn’t play last year. All the young boys today, they’re all new players for us.
“The transfer market is open I don’t know exactly until when, when does it finish? [Interviewer: August 8]. August 8! This wonderful country, the whole of Europe had the idea to close the transfer window early and the only country who did it was England finally. So we close it three weeks before the others.
“We will see what we do, but I don’t think it will be the biggest transfer window of all time.”
The Reds have been linked with a move for Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho although that is unlikely to come to fruition.
Liverpool’s pre-season tour got off to the perfect start. Klopp’s side dismantled Tranmere Rovers 6-0 with Brewster scoring twice. Following the departure of Daniel Sturridge, Brewster could have a major role to play this coming season.
The Merseyside outfit will square off against Bradford and Borussia Dortmund in their next couple of pre-season matches.
