Despite signing Chelsea youngster Dominic Solanke on a free transfer, Liverpool have had it very difficult in the transfer market and their fans have become extremely worried about their lack of activity so far.
Their pursuit of Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk was fruitless and almost landed them in trouble after Southampton reported them to the FA.
Also, a £70million transfer for Naby Keita seems unlikely after RB Leipzig informed the Reds he was not for sale.
Despite fan’s anxiety, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp still believes the Anfield club are holding it down pretty well and brushed off comparisons with rivals Chelsea and Manchester United.
“We also bought players,” said Klopp.
“Yes and they [Liverpool’s rivals] lost a lot of players.
“I heard Man United lost players, got new players.
“Don’t know about Chelsea, I’ve not heard a lot.
“If any of our fans think about what the other teams are doing and why we aren’t doing anything,
“I can’t help, sorry. We cannot only buy players because other teams buy players.
“We do our business as good as we can do it and we are completely in it and we are convinced about the way that we are going so that’s all.
“Nervous fans? Sorry I cannot help, I don’t have to write a message for this.
“I’m not nervous – maybe that’s the right message for this.”
Although Chelsea haven’t had it really good in the transfer market, Liverpool seem to be struggling the most among the top six in the Premier League.
