Klopp to focus on "solutions internally" rather than spending big this summer


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says the new Premier League champions won't be spending "millions and millions" on players in the upcoming transfer window. 

Adam Lallana and Xherdan Shaqiri are set to leave Anfield at the end of the campaign but the Liverpool boss is planning to promote fringe players rather than spend big.

"Covid has of course influenced both sides with ins and outs, that is completely normal, and it's just not likely that it will be the most busy summer in the world," Klopp said of his plans.

"But maybe at a later point in the year, if the transfer window is still open, we will know more. But this squad, look at it, It is not a squad you have to change now and say 'OK, we need this position and this position'.

"We don't have a first XI, I say we have a first 16 or 17, they can all play to the same level. But we have to use this, 100 per cent.

"We cannot spend millions and millions and millions because we want to or we think it is nice to do. We never wanted that.

"We want to strengthen this squad and this squad is strong. The problem with a strong squad is how do you improve a strong squad in the transfer market?

"It works with money, obviously, that is possible. But it never works only with money.

"You have to be creative and we try to be creative. We try to find solutions internally and there is still a lot to come: we have three or four players who can make big steps."
