The Reds are set to finish fifth and miss out on Champions League football despite their late-season form.


The lack of Champions League football is likely to affect their budget ahead of a summer where they are expected to overhaul their midfield.



It could also affect their ability to bring in players early in the transfer window, but Klopp is not worried about it.


He stressed that signing good players will take time and the club are prepared for a long transfer window where not everything will go according to plan for them.



The Liverpool manager admitted that ideally, he would want every player signed early but insisted that he does not think that is a game-changer for Liverpool in the upcoming transfer window.


Asked if the lack of Champions League football will hamper Liverpool’s ability to bring in players early, Klopp said in a press conference: “I don’t think so but we will see.



“It’s always possible that things don’t go as well as you want and it’s not only possible, it’s probably likely.


“The better the players you want the lesser is the desire of the other clubs to let them go.


“That’s exactly what we have to prepare for and we are prepared for it as it is a long window, it’s a long break in-between.


“If we get a player in tomorrow or in six or seven weeks, it’s not a game changer for me.


“In an ideal world, they are all signed tomorrow and I can tell them when they have to be here and I can start giving them the plans for the summer break.


“But that will not happen.”
