Liverpool are unlikely to make further signings before the transfer window closes, Jürgen Klopp has explained.

The arrivals of Thiago Alcantara, Diogo Jota and Kostas Tsimikas since the end of the 2019-20 season have bolstered the champions’ ranks for the new campaign, but the boss is not anticipating more activity in terms of incomings prior to the October 5 deadline.

“I don’t expect a lot, to be honest,” Klopp replied, when asked about transfers and his options at centre-back specifically.

“The centre-half position - you think you are well covered, we have three absolutely top, top, top-class centre-halves, young players in behind, Fabinho in the back hand if you want, and then all of a sudden three players are out for a few days. 

“That’s not nice but you cannot, we cannot, sort that in the transfer market, to be honest, because that’s just not possible and we will not even try. I think if nothing more serious happens, I hope we don’t have to try that, but if the situation stays like it is in the moment then no, nothing will happen. 

“For all the rest, I think we are in quite a good place now squad-wise and what will happen in the outgoing side, I have no idea in the moment. We will see.”
