Jurgen Klopp teases a transfer before the market closes, saying, “Might be something.”

Since Ibrahima Konate joined Liverpool earlier this summer, the club has been quiet on the transfer front.

Jurgen Klopp has stated that he is “quite happy” with Liverpool’s existing team, but has hinted that the Reds may return to the trade market before the end of the month. The Merseyside club have only signed defender Ibrahima Konate since the start of the summer window, with the Frenchman signing from RB Leipzig in May. Liverpool used his £34 million release clause to bring Konate to Anfield and give some much-needed depth at the back.

The six-time European champions, on the other hand, are yet to make any further acquisitions.

When asked about his team’s transfer activity following Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao, Klopp stated that he is happy with the present crop but hinted that upgrades could be made in the remaining weeks of the summer window.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp remarked, “I am really delighted with the group I have.”

“You can’t sign counter-pressing, the environment, our national anthem… There are various techniques out there, but we have no control over them.

JUST IN: “There might yet be something happening before the transfer window closes,” Klopp said, praising young midfielder Harvey Elliot, who has impressed for Liverpool throughout preseason after a successful loan spell with Blackburn Rovers last season.

The Reds manager cited the teenager’s impressive performances as indication that big-money transfers aren’t always the best way to find new solutions.

“With Harvey Elliott, we have a new midfielder in our squad,” Klopp concluded.

“We have guys that have the potential to make a significant impact. We aren’t deaf. We observe what others do.

“All we have to do now is beat them.” We’ll make an effort to do so.

“Harvey has the ability to play a variety of positions. We wanted to see him in a bigger role during the preseason. He’s come a long way in the preseason.

“If he stays in shape, the football world will be quite excited. I was impressed with his preseason performance and attitude.” MORE TO COME We’ll keep you updated with the latest news, photos, and video on this developing story.
