Klopp warns Liverpool fans not to expect much transfer activity

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has warned the club’s fans not to expect much transfer activity at Anfield this summer.

Liverpool have made just one addition in the transfer window so far, signing 17-year-old centre-back Sepp van den Berg from Dutch side PEC Zwolle, while Fulham youngster Harvey Elliott is also expected to join the European Champions.

Having spent around £170m on the likes of Alisson and Fabinho in 2018, Klopp is anticipating minimal incomings at the club this summer.

The 52-year-old is happy with the squad currently at his disposal, whilst suggesting returning long-term absentees Rhian Brewster and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain can provide fresh options this season.

“We brought them (new players) in already, only you don’t realise it. Rhian Brewster; Oxlade-Chamberlain didn’t play last year; all the young boys today. They are all new players for us, that’s all good,” Klopp said following Liverpool’s 6-0 win over Tranmere.

“The transfer market is open until August 8. The whole of Europe had the idea to close the transfer window early and the only country that did it was then England, so we close it now three weeks before all the others.

“We will see what we do but I don’t think it will be the biggest transfer window of all time.”
