After a crazy week in the transfer window at Anfield, you get the impression we might just be nearing the end of our summer business.

Seven new players have been added to the squad, three of whom – Alex Manninger, Ragnar Klavan, and Gini Wijnaldum – were signed this week. They join Sadio Mane, Marko Grujic, Loris Karius, and Joel Matip on the new arrivals list.

Reliable Liverpool journalist Chris Bascombe has now said that Klopp’s main focus between now and September 1st will be adding another defender. Although he doesn’t specify the exact position, it’s widely thought it will be a left-back –  especially if local lad Jon Flanagan is allowed to leave on loan. (via Telegraph).

It doesn’t, however, look like that player will be Ben Chilwell. The Leicester City teenager is close to agreeing a new contract in the Midlands and thus snubbing Klopp’s advances (via Telegraph).

We’ve also been linked with Jonas Hector from Koln (via Express) and Hull’s Andy Robertson (Echo) – but neither have been officially commented on by the club or Klopp.

Who would you sign? Let us know…
