The Boss says the squad is too big

Following Liverpool’s 5-0 win over Napoli on Saturday night, Jürgen Klopp told the media to expect a busy end to the transfer window before the season starts.

“We will see what happens. If any player from my team is available, then in every other situation in my life as a manager I would have bought all of them, to be honest.” Klopp said. “They are all fantastic boys, they are able to play fantastic football. In this moment, the squad would be too big, that’s true. But it’s not that that means for us that we give them for free or something like that, Liverpool is strong enough to keep all these players and then we deal with that. We are not there to make other teams stronger, that’s not our job.”

With just 5 days before the transfer window closes, Liverpool have a lot to work to do if they want to get some of the out-of-favor talent off the books. The Reds could realistically shed between 4-7 players by this time next week. The likes of Simon Mignolet, Danny Ings, Divock Origi, and Lazar Markovic could all leave the club permanently. Liverpool could also be looking to loan out some of their younger talent as well.

When asked whether there’d be anymore incoming transfers, Klopp wouldn’t rule that out. When a Sky reporter asked the question, he responded, ““I can’t kill your D-Day where people sit in front of the TV and watch.”

However, it is unlikely that Klopp adds to the squad this late in the window, but who knows. Stranger things have happened.
