Liverpool are unlikely to spend heavily during the summer transfer window because Jurgen Klopp feels his squad is in a good place at the moment.
There will be several faces that move on, with the likes of Alberto Moreno out of contract and others like Daniel Sturridge potentially wanting more game-time, but Klopp says fans should not expect big amounts to be invested in new arrivals.
Jurgen Klopp says his belief Liverpool’s players can continue to improve means unlikely to spend heavily in summer: “I dont think this is a team at the moment where we have to spend the big money.” @TimesSport

It’s true that the Reds are doing very well at the moment – you don’t beat Bayern Munich in the Champions League if that is not the case – but whatever happens between now and May, the team can always be improved.
A creative midfielder is likely to be near the top of the list of priorities among Reds fans, with the failed signing of Nabil Fekir last summer still fresh in the memory.
Long-term absentee Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, though, will hopefully be back to his best next season, while Klopp has high hopes for the likes of Rhian Brewster and Adam Lewis who are coming through the youth ranks.
Perhaps the most important thing is that the likes of Sadio Mane and Mo Salah have been tied down to long-term deals and there is no risk of big players leaving the club for the likes of Barcelona or Real Madrid.
Whatever the club end up doing, the Reds will end the window stronger than they started it, which has not always been the case.
