At his pre-match press conference, the Liverpool manager was asked about potential business by the club before the deadline next Thursday.
“Until August 31, that’s how the business is – a lot of things are really possible, ins and outs. That’s how it is,” he replied.
“I’ve said it a few times, if the transfer window closed tomorrow, it is like it is and I’m happy with it.
“Just to say, in the Champions League game Divock Origi was not in the squad. He has nothing wrong, that just shows how big the quality already is. That’s just one example. Other players were also not in the squad.
“That’s the situation. We work on it, you can imagine. That’s all aside; I prepare [for] Arsenal. We are in talks. Will something happen? I don’t know.
“Obviously this transfer window is different to all other transfer windows.
“And I’ve also said it before, Andrew Robertson showed up against Crystal Palace. Before he showed up, I think everybody thought ‘Robertson from Hull?’ and now think ‘Oh my God, he’s really strong!’ I’m completely fine and happy with him. Dominic Solanke showed everything you want to see from a new player in a really short time. Mo Salah, we don’t have to talk about this.
“James Milner plays in midfield again, that’s like a transfer for us. Alberto Moreno plays left-back again in an outstanding [way]. If a few people would not still remember that a year ago he made a mistake, against Arsenal maybe, then everybody would say ‘What a performance!’ I can do it easily. Obviously I’m pretty much alone with this view. But that’s no problem.
“We will see what happens. I’m happy at the moment. Will I be happy on 31 still? Not sure. Will I be happier? Possible – we will see.”
