Jurgen Klopp does not expect a busy transfer window for Liverpool.
Klopp spent big during 2018, with new recruits Virgil van Dijk, Alisson and Fabinho making key contributions to their 2018-19 Champions League triumph.
A 97-point haul as runners-up to Manchester City in the Premier League underlined Liverpool’s remarkable consistency, while players returning from injury provide additional options that mean involvement in an increasingly inflated market does not feel like a necessity to the manager.
“We brought [new players] in already, only you don’t realise it,” he told reporters after Thursday’s 6-0 friendly win at Tranmere Rovers.
“Rhian Brewster, [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain [who] didn’t play last year, all the young boys. They are all new players for us, that’s all good.
“The transfer market is open until August 8. The whole of Europe had the idea to close the transfer window early and the only country that did it was then England, so we close it now three weeks before all the others.
“We will see what we do but I don’t think it will be the biggest transfer window of all time.”
