Liverpool legend John Aldridge is convinced that there must be money available for Jurgen Klopp to spend on players given how much he has recouped through sales this summer.

The Reds have splashed out around £60m on new signings in the summer window, but they have brought in around £70m, meaning their transfer activities have seen a profit realised, a situation which could be considered strange for a side hoping to break into the top four.

Klopp is also having to play a midfielder in James Milner at left-back after deciding Alberto Moreno does not cut the mustard.

Aldridge is sure the German boss must have money available to use before Wednesday's deadline, however he stressed that unless Klopp can land the players he wants then there is no point in spending for the sake of it.

"To be honest there's got to be money there because he's recouped most of what he's spent – so that shouldn't be a problem", Aldridge said on LFC TV.


"But unless there are players there available that will fit in and are better than what we've got then it's not worth doing it for the sake of it."

Liverpool have been linked with putting in a bid of £11m for Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic, but there is no sign over whether the Bundesliga club are prepared to accept the offer.

The Reds could finish just eighth in the Premier League last season and as such have no European football on the agenda for the current campaign.

Klopp's men played out a 1-1 draw at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
