Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool are ‘constantly working’ to find the ‘right player’ in the transfer market amid calls for the club to sign reinforcements.
Liverpool are winless in their opening three fixtures of the campaign with the Reds having struggled in the absence of a number of names currently on the treatment table.
Midfield has been a particular issue, with Jordan Henderson and James Milner criticised for their performances during the club’s 2-1 defeat at Manchester United on Monday evening.
Thiago, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones and Naby Keita are all sidelined at present, leaving the Reds short of depth in central areas.
Liverpool take on Bournemouth in the Premier League this weekend and ahead of the clash Klopp discussed the prospect of new arrivals. The German admits he is unsure whether a deal will be done before the transfer deadline next week, but insists his side are alway looking for the ‘right player’.
“I don’t know,” Klopp said at his pre-match press conference. “We are actually working constantly on these kind of things.
“One thing stays important – it needs to be the right player. We are working but we will see if something will happen or not. I don’t know.”
