Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has insisted that it’s more than likely there will be more comings and goings at the club during the summer transfer window.
The German tactician has already welcomed four new faces to the club ahead of the upcoming campaign, with Loris Karius, Marko Grujic, Sadio Mane and Joel Matip all joining the Reds.
Further, Ragnar Klavan appears to be closing in on a move to Anfield, with Klopp also telling reporters on Sunday that youngsters at the club that he rates highly will not be sent out on loan.
“A few things will happen I am pretty sure,” Klopp said in his post-game press conference after his side’s 2-0 win over Wigan, as noted by ESPN FC. “I don’t know exactly what but on both sides, it makes no sense to stay in the squad and be in the squad when you don’t have a real opportunity to play. When there’s no chance to play, it makes absolutely no sense.”
“The players are young. We will not give on loan our very young players, absolutely no chance.
“We have a few players, maybe who want to leave us and I am pretty sure it will happen and one or two more players will join us from other clubs. It’s a long time until the 31st of August and we have to work a little bit.”
After guiding Liverpool to an eighth-place finish in the Premier League last season, as well as two cup finals, Klopp enjoyed a relatively successful first year in England.
However, ahead of his first full campaign in charge at Anfield, he is evidently keen on reshuffling his squad and bringing in players more suited to his system and style of play.
In turn, Liverpool fans will undoubtedly be confident that the club will continue to make strides in the right direction as of next season, although Klopp is also placing his faith in younger players and will need time and patience to see the best of them.
He’ll need to strike the right balance though, as ultimately he will be under pressure to deliver both short-term and long-term results and so he’ll hope to make a positive start to the new campaign next month.
