Speaking to the club’s official website, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted that this summer will not be the biggest transfer window in the club’s history and that he is “happy” with the team right now.
Despite winning the Champions League, the Reds narrowly missed out on clinching a famous double after rivals Manchester City pipped them to the Premier League title on the final day.
Even though the transfer deadline is approaching early next month, Klopp admitted that he was “relaxed” about the situation and dismissed any idea of them spending big again.

He said: “We are pretty relaxed in that, we will see what’s coming up. How I said, it will not be the biggest transfer window of LFC; we invested a lot in the team in the last two years, I would say. We cannot spend every year in the same manner.
“But we are fine. I’m happy with the team, we are really happy. We have to see if we find maybe one position, if we find something for it, but there’s no real pressure because it’s not about signing a player. We have solutions for all the situations. “
In this modern world of wanting big-money signings and not being happy unless a team spends out about £100m each window, Klopp’s steadfast approach this summer is a refreshing change.
If there was any team right now that could potentially be excused for having a relatively low-key transfer window, then it would be the champions of Europe. The Champions League is the holy grail in club football and the Reds achieved that in scintillating fashion last season.
Pep Guardiola’s City have understandably continued to strengthen their side with the purchase of Rodri, but the feeling for Klopp will surely be that some of his injured stars who missed large chunks of last season can stay healthy and eventually come good.

The likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Rhian Brewster will bring pace and energy with their first-team comebacks whilst last summer’s new signings Naby Keita and Fabinho should be better, after a season adjusting to English football.
The concerns are understandable; standing still can often be seen as moving backwards. But after the success of the last campaign, Liverpool should simply trust in Klopp’s process.
