Liverpool will not bring in quantity this summer, but instead will focus on signing two or three players who can walk straight into the first-team.
Jurgen Klopp has told the club’s hierarchy that only a few players are needed, ready to complement the side that finished fourth in 2016/17, above both Arsenal and Manchester United.
“Jurgen is happy with how our transfer business is being conducted,” a high-level Liverpool source told The Mirror.
“This summer was always going to be about quality rather than quality and the manager understands that landing the kind of players he wants was always going to be about being patient.
“There is no sense of worry or panic. This window is about bringing in players who are better than the ones who are already here.”
We’ve brought in Mo Salah so far, who will add pace, directness and most importantly goals to the frontline.
His addition will allow Coutinho to drop deeper into midfield, which will in turn add creativity to an area which sometimes lacked it last term.
Klopp is keen to bring in a centre-back, a central midfielder and a left-back before the season starts, but so far the club is struggling to get deals over the line.
Naby Keita and Virgil van Dijk both want to sign, but convincing their clubs to do business has so far proven tricky.
Relegated Scot Andrew Robertson is the most likely left-back purchase.
