Liverpool opinion: Jurgen Klopp’s statement about not spending much in the summer is the right one at the right time

Liverpool were one of the more busier teams in the previous summer window landing four star players.

Fabinho and Alisson has been excellent this season while we have seen glimpses of what Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita can do on the pitch.

The Reds spent a world record sum for a defender when they signed Virgil van Dijk in January last year, and the Dutchman has been the best player for the team this season.

Jurgen Klopp was recently speaking about our summer plans ahead of the clash against Fulham, and claimed we would not be spending much in the window (h/t Sky Sports):

“I don’t want to talk exactly what we will do, but I don’t think this is a team at the moment where we have to spend the big money or whatever.”

The German claimed that he wants to develop the players in the current side, and doesn’t believe we would lose any names too.

The Reds were big spenders for the first time in a long while last summer but Klopp’s statement is the right one given our current scenario.

A boost for the players

The last thing any player would need is for the manager to come out and say he wants to strengthen certain areas of the team.

The current crop of players have taken us this far in the Premier League race and the Champions League, and Klopp backing them will give them that little extra in the final games of the season.

The German has been a fantastic man manager at Liverpool and we need no distractions regarding transfer speculation during the final two months of the season or so.

Further, we have some quality youngster in the team such as Rhian Brewster, and away on loan, such as Harry Wilson who could get some minutes next season.

Klopp believes the players will stay

Liverpool have done well to extend the deals of several top players this season with Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane all penning new deals.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Andy Robertson also signed new deals which keeps our young players at the club for longer.

The German added that in the past Liverpool lost one of their top players which affected the development of the team, but he has made us one of the best in the world.

It would be difficult seeing any of them leave given we are on the up, and a title this season would certainly entice them to stay at Liverpool for longer.

Liverpool will spend in the window

Klopp didn’t claim outright that the Reds would not spend in the window, he just suggested we would not spend big.

However, the German’s statement has to be taken with a pinch of salt. Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno are out of contract in the summer, and the Reds might need to replace them.

The German also provided his backing to Loris Karius throughout the summer claiming we would not move for another keeper and we signed Alisson.

Similarly, Fabinho was a surprise signing just a day or so after our Champions League final defeat.

The Reds are on the up and there should be some signings, such as cover for Andy Robertson or another attacker to give a rest to the likes of Salah and Mane.

However, it would be unlikely we splash the cash as we did in the previous summer.

Klopp wants to keep experienced star at Liverpool despite interest from European giants



Liverpool FC transfer news: Jurgen Klopp does not want to lose Dejan Lovren in the summer

Calciomercato claims that AC Milan will find it difficult to sign Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren.

The Croatian defender recently returned to the Reds for pre-season training, and report claims that the Reds value Lovren at €25million.

The 30-year-old was not a regular starter for us last season due to injuries and the form shown by Joel Matip and Joe Gomez.

However, the Croatian is one of the most experienced defenders in the Premier League, and the report adds that Jurgen Klopp admires Lovren’s leadership at the back.

The report claims that this is one reason why Klopp wants to keep Lovren in the team for as long as possible.

Liverpool won’t let Lovren go on the cheap

The report adds that Liverpool are looking to get the complete €25m for Lovren and are not willing to reduce his price.

Milan would have to match the valuation for Liverpool to even consider selling the Croatian (h/t Calciomercato).

The Reds have signed Sepp van den Berg, a young centre-back, in the summer, however, Klopp’s thought process regarding Lovren makes a lot of sense.

The Croatian hasn’t made any noises of wanting to leave and did a decent job in most of his games last season.

Signing a senior defender for the upcoming season would not be easy, and the Croatian has a great relationship with most of the Liverpool players, such as Mohamed Salah.

Lovren’s experience is certainly great for a young Liverpool team, and it will be interesting to see what our actions are in the summer window.

“I would say yes”: Klopp opens up on where Liverpool star’s future lies



Latest Liverpool transfer news: Klopp claims Mignolet’s future is with Reds

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Simon Mignolet would be staying despite the keeper being unsure about his playing time at the club (h/t Daily Mail).

Alisson was signed last summer, and the Brazilian has been excellent with the Reds.

The keeper won the Golden Glove in the Champions League and the Premier League, and won the Copa America this summer.

Alisson was also the Man of the Match in our 2-0 win over Tottenham in the Champions League final.

However, Klopp was certain that Mignolet would stay, and praised his professionalism last season (h/t Daily Mail):

“Yes, (it’s) how I’ve heard.

“I’ve had a lot of conversations in the last couple of years, months – not weeks. Before we left (for the summer break) we had talk. I would say yes (he stays).”

Klopp added that the Reds need quality players in all positions, and that was the situation with our goalkeepers:

“At a club like Liverpool you need two number ones in the club and we have that with Ali and Simon.

“It’s a good situation for the club and a situation you should have and that’s why everything is fine from my point of view.”

Mignolet needs more games at Liverpool

The Belgian only played two games for the first-team last season, with those appearances coming in the domestic cups.

Mignolet needs to play regularly as he is in the prime of his goalkeeping career, and the Reds should offer him the same next season.

Liverpool turn to veteran keeper to solve current injury crisis



Liverpool FC transfer news: Reds move for Andy Lonergan to solve keeper issue

The Liverpool Echo reports that the Reds have moved for former Preston North End goalkeeper Andy Lonergan to solve their problems between the sticks.

The report claims that Jurgen Klopp has brought in the 35-year-old keeper who last played for Middlesbrough.

Lonergan is set to travel to the US for our tour of North America, according to the report, as Simon Mignolet is the only fit senior keeper Liverpool have.

Andy Lonergan

Alisson is away on a break after winning the Copa America while the Reds have seen two young keepers pick up injuries.

Caoimhin Kelleher is out with a wrist injury, Vitezslav Jaros injured his ankle ligaments while Kamil Grabara is yet to report for duty after his U21 Euro exploits with Poland.

Mignolet had to play almost the entirety of our pre-season friendly against Bradford with Dan Atherton being given a few minutes last night.

Lonergan not signing a deal with Liverpool

The report adds that the 35-year-old keeper will not sign a contract with Liverpool, and is unlikely to play in the US games.

Liverpool play Sevilla, Borussia Dortmund and Sporting Lisbon in this part of the pre-season tour.

Lonergan is a well-travelled keeper, with stints at Rochdale, Leeds United, Bolton Wanderers and Wolves.
