Jurgen Klopp has discussed why Liverpool is now a more appealing project for players to get on board with than it perhaps was last year.
The German has turned a more detailed focus towards the club’s transfer plans than he usually does, not only confirming talks with key targets but also explaining why there is now a better chance of players wanting to make the move to Anfield.
“I think that Liverpool at this moment is a really interesting project for players. We cannot say 100 per cent we will play Champions League football next year, but it’s a young team, it’s a fantastic club, it’s a good situation where we really can see the progress of the team,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.
“So I would say together with Tottenham, the average age of the team is such that there’s still a lot to come. They are obviously a few steps ahead, but they have played longer together maybe. We feel in a good way, and if a player wants to be part of this way, then it’s easier to make this decision this year than last year.”
After a mix of memorable moments and disappointing setbacks during Klopp’s time on Merseyside so far, there is the feeling that the club could be reaching a crucial stage in the German’s long-term project.
Securing a top four spot would mark significant progress and set the tone for what is expected from an already highly-talented squad that looks set to be improved this summer.
Klopp recently reaffirmed his determination to deliver silverware which comes as a realistic objective players have every reason to be attracted to. He is dedicated to ensuring this club experiences success once again and has players, yet to play their best football, capable of cementing Liverpool’s position as top four and title contenders for years to come.
