Liverpool have had a successful transfer window so far having recruited four new players.
Naby Keita arrived from RB Leipzig after agreeing to join the Reds a year ago, while defensive midfielder Fabinho signed from Monaco.
The Reds scooped up Xherdan Shaqiri following Stoke City’s relegation to the Championship, and on Thursday, the club smashed the world-record fee for a goalkeeper by landing Alisson’s signature from Roma.
According to BBC Sport, the Reds spent around £66.8m on the Brazilian international, who will take Loris Karius’s place in the team following the German’s blunders in the Champions League final.
Understandably, Liverpool fans are very excited by the new arrivals, but they continue to push for Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir.
The France international was on the verge of joining the Reds before the Premier League club pulled out of a deal due to concerns over an underlying knee problem.
Rumours have persisted about a deal potentially being reignited, but while speaking to reporters after Liverpool’s pre-season match against Blackburn Rovers, Klopp suggested that the club will not be bringing in any more players.
Liverpool Echo journalist James Pearce posted the manager’s quote on Twitter.
Klopp: "We have everything we need for the next season because I don’t think we will do anything more [in the market]." #LFC

In response, some fans refused to take the comments for face value, suggesting that a deal for Fekir is still on.
He’s played the media all summer and he’s doing it again 😎

Klopp thinks but if he was certain he’d say for sure

Mind games, Lyon needs to respond by dropping Fekir’s price as requested. And we’ll be back😉
