Liverpool’s midfield harm record is piling up, however Jurgen Klopp says “it doesn’t appear to be” the membership will return into the market earlier than the tip of the switch window.
Thiago, Curtis Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all stay out, amid calls from some sections of Liverpool supporters to see a brand new midfielder added to the ranks within the coming weeks.
Nonetheless, Klopp stays relaxed with the choices at his disposal and insists a switch “solely is sensible” if the fitting participant is obtainable.
For now evidently participant just isn’t in the marketplace, and regardless of assessing their choices, the Liverpool boss has seemingly dominated out one other midfield addition this summer time.
“There are completely different options,” Klopp advised reporters in his press convention previewing Monday’s conflict with Crystal Palace.
“One in every of them is the switch market, which solely is sensible in the event you can herald the fitting participant.
“When you herald the fitting participant it could make sense. We’d have achieved that from the primary day of the switch window.
“If there could be the fitting participant and there could be a possibility, however I don’t see it as a result of we had a number of conversations already and it doesn’t appear to be one thing will occur.
“If there could be the fitting resolution for us we’d have achieved it already.”
One participant who seems to be set to learn from Liverpool’s determination to stay with what they’ve received is Harvey Elliott, who penned a brand new long-term contract with the membership on Thursday.
It was Elliott who changed Thiago after the Spaniard pulled up with a hamstring harm within the Reds’ Premier League opener at Fulham.
Yeah he’s at all times,” Klopp mentioned when requested if Elliott was in his ideas a few potential begin in opposition to Palace.
“He’s a implausible boy, tremendous participant. Got here on (in opposition to Fulham), had an actual influence and performed an excellent pre-season.”
