Jurgen Klopp claims to have no wantaway players on his books at Liverpool. The Reds are yet to sign any new players in the summer transfer window. Borussia Monchengladbach’s Florian Neuhaus, Leicester’s Youri Tielemans, and Brighton enforcer Yves Bissouma could all be linked with a move away from Anfield this summer. However, nobody currently at Anfield is looking for a way out.
WHAT HAS BEEN SAID?
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he is not in a rush to sign new players. Liverpool faces West Ham on Saturday. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita could leave Anfield.
“There was [Jadon] Sancho and maybe somebody else, OK, Konate we did that early, but it’s a really calm window.
“LET’S SEE WHAT HAPPENS AND ALL OF THESE THINGS, BUT IN THE MOMENT, EVERYBODY HAS THE CHANCE TO IMPRESS ME AND I HOPE THEY DO.”
ARE LIVERPOOL IN GOOD SHAPE?
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has given his players a much-needed break before reporting back for pre-season. The 2019-20 Premier League champions suffered a humbling tumble from the loftiest of perches last season, but a late rally secured a third-place finish and Champions League qualification. Injured stars Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez are now back in the fold and key men that have played almost continuously for the last three years have been given time off.
“THEN THEY HAVE NOT A LONG PRE-SEASON BUT THEY DIDN’T HAVE A LONG BREAK, SO THAT’S ABSOLUTELY OK. SO THEY GET AS LONG AS WE COULD; WE SQUEEZED EVERYTHING OUT AGAIN FOR THEM THAT THEY CAN REALLY HAVE THE PROPER REST THEY NEED.”
Liverpool will open their 2021-22 Premier League campaign away at newly-promoted Norwich on August 14.
