Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has allayed fears that he is off the transfer market, claiming that he will not be swayed by the transfer activities of other Clubs but he will bolster his own squad.
The main signing made by Klopp for Liverpool this summer is Mohamed Salah who joined from Roma in a Club record fee. While he added England international from Dominic Solanke from Chelsea, he may not get into the first team of the Reds.
Liverpool ended last season in the first quartet of the Premier League log but they have failed to reinforce their squad like their capital rivals Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea have done, raising widespread speculation that they may not be able to compete for the title next season.
Liverpool trashed Tranmere Rovers 4-0 win over in their first pre-season game on Wednesday and Klopp was quizzed after the game about possible transfers.
“We cannot buy players because other teams buy players,”
“We do our business as good as we can do it and we are convinced about the way we are going.”
Liverpool next pre-season game is scheduled for this Friday against third-tier Wigan Athletic before they leave for Hong Kong.
However, Mohamed Salah is not eligible to play yet as he has not sorted his work permit issues but Solanke made his debut on Wednesday and Klopp was full of praise for the youngster.
Salah is expected to play as the lead attack and he will be flanked by Saido Mane and Adam Lallana in the upcoming season.
