Mohamed Salah, Dominic Solanke and… no one else. These are the two players Liverpool have signed so far in this transfer window, a number that some -if not many- Reds fans must be finding small, given how other Premier League greats are doing this summer.
If any fans of us think what the other teams are doing and why we don’t do anything, then I can’t help. We cannot buy players only because other teams buy players. We do business as good as we can do it
Jurgen Klopp said in a Press conference after Liverpool’s 4-0 friendly win over Tranmere Rovers.
We are completely in it and we are convinced about the way we are doing it. Nervous fans, I don’t have to write a message for this. We have until the 31st of August. We have time and some things need time
the Liverpool coach also said, before urging the fans to do what he does, “wait a bit”.
If we make transfers, it’s because we want to do it. If not, then it’s because we don’t want to do it. That’s how it is and we have to wait a little bit
Klopp said. The German was asked about Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk as well, but he avoided going into the subject, saying
Am I allowed to talk about this? No I’m not. Pretty much everything what I could say would be a mistake, I think
was his comment. Last month, Liverpool had to publicly apologize to Southampton, amid tapping-up allegations.
