Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he cannot wait for the transfer window to close, dropping a hint he may be happy to conclude his summer business, despite the Reds making a profit on their dealings.

Klopp has brought in over £70m in player sales this summer, while only spending around £60m, handing Liverpool a profit of £10m.

The Reds boss has been linked with adding to his squad before the window shuts, but while he accepts that anything can happen until 31st August, he explained that he cannot wait for the window to close and believes he can improve the players he already has on the training pitch.

Asked about transfers at his press conference on Monday, Klopp replied: "I really wait for the day when finally the transfer window is closed because I can’t believe how obsessed you all are with this and that you don’t believe for a second in improving things on the training pitch.

"I understand after Arsenal, it was far away from being a perfect game and everybody said we scored four, so obviously we can score goals, but we conceded three, so obviously we have a defensive problem", the German tactician explained.


"That’s if you’re not very interested in us, then that’s a way you can see the game.

"Then we play at Burnley and have 81 per cent of ball possession, but didn’t score a goal, so now we could say we need another striker, if you want.

"I think it makes sense that we think about these things without watching the results we’ve had.

"That’s what I’ve said always, until 31st August everything is possible because a lot of things can happen, but in this moment it’s not that we have a main thing to do, that our feeling is in this position we have nobody or we have the feeling we cannot work with the player in the position or something like this."

The Liverpool boss insists that he does not have a specific position he is looking to strengthen, despite left-back Alberto Moreno seeing his performances criticised and Klopp even preferred to start a midfielder, James Milner, ahead of the Spaniard at Burnley.

"We are very professional, very clear and always working, but there is nothing more to say about this. What will happen, we will see.

"I don’t know in this moment 100 per cent what will happen, but it’s not that we have a preferred position where we are looking for players."

Liverpool have no European football on the agenda this season after Klopp led the Reds to a finish of eighth in the Premier League last term and fewer games may mean the German prefers a smaller squad.

Klopp took over at Anfield in October last year, succeeding Brendan Rodgers.
