Jurgen Klopp drops transfer hint as Liverpool summer plans take shape – Liverpool Echo

Jurgen Klopp has stated he is ready for a “pretty busy period” as Liverpool turn their attention to strengthening their squad in the summer.

The Reds ended a roller coaster campaign in fitting fashion with a remarkable 4-4 draw at relegated Southampton on Sunday afternoon to finish the season unbeaten in 11 games.

Liverpool already knew they would finish in fifth place, having failed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in seven years.

With Roberto Firmino and James Milner both having played their last games for the club before leaving alongside Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita and loanee Arthur Melo, the Reds are expected to sign several new players in the upcoming transfer window.

At least two new midfielders are expected, and Liverpool are now preparing to ramp up their efforts to sign Brighton’s World Cup winner Alexis Mac Allister, who dropped a major hint that he would tearfully leave the Seagulls after their last game at Aston Villa.

And Klopp is eager to continue with transfer matters, saying: “I don’t feel like I need a break, not at all. Honestly, I’m totally fine. If you had asked me 11 games ago if you’d wanted to get away, I honestly would have thought about that!But I’m totally fine, full of energy.

“I’m on a break – I don’t have training and stuff like that – but a pretty busy period is hopefully starting in another part of the game now and I’m more than happy to do that. I’ll find time to re-energize and then we start again in July.”

Diogo Jota scored twice, while Firmino scored a farewell goal and substitute Cody Gakpo also found goal as Liverpool went from 2-0 to 4-2 before saving a point.

“You all need a bit of luck and we were actually the opposite (this season),” said the Liverpool boss. “Today you could see the influence of Diogo Jota, who is unavailable for most of the season. Luis Diaz, unavailable for most of the season. Cody Gakpo only came in winter. Bobby Firmino, large parts of the season not available Darwin Nunez completely new.

“We had to be a dominant team and there were teams waiting for us when we got there, and we couldn’t sort it out as well as we wanted to. That’s how it started and from then on we never calmed it down properly.” to start early enough.”

No Premier League team has taken more points than Liverpool’s 25 of the 33 points available in the closing weeks of the season.

And Klopp said: “Had we started this series (results) four or five weeks earlier, we could still have qualified for the Champions League, which wouldn’t have been great, but would have been excellent.

“We know the reasons why it happened. We expect ourselves to settle it faster, but we work with people and sometimes it takes a little longer.”
