Klopp’s deals are ‘pretty much sorted’
Jurgen Klopp says that Liverpool’s transfer plans for this summer are ‘pretty much sorted’ after the Reds beat Middlesbrough to qualify for next season’s Champions League this afternoon.
Klopp had previously admitted that a finish in the top 4 this season would really help him in the transfer market this summer.
We thought the same, and have compiled a list of 10 players Liverpool might be able to sign with the help of Champions League football.
And speaking after Sunday’s triumph, the German suggested that much of his work was close to being finalised already, fuelling speculation of some big-name arrivals.
“We have already pretty much done [the work]. We have to see. Most of the work is already done, of course,” he said.
“[It’s not like] tomorrow with Michael Edwards we will sit together and speak about what we think we need!
“Now we have to make decisions. Negotiations need to be done. All that stuff. But it’s all good. We are prepared, we will see what works out or not.
“There’s no training in the next few weeks. We fly tomorrow night for Australia, play the game, fly back and the holiday starts for all of us.
“Yes, I have a little of work to do. But I’ve worked properly in my life when I was younger.
“So a few phone calls aren’t really work when you’re talking about wonderful things like football, Liverpool and other things.”
