Jürgen Klopp of course has the luxury of having the options to slowly integrate the Uruguayan into the team.

Klopp comments on the possibility of new signings

Jürgen Klopp has admitted that Liverpool are not going to dip back into the transfer market despite their injuries.

The German manager did not rule out further signings, but his comments suggest the Merseyside club are unlikely to bring in new recruits.

Klopp said:

“We have too many injuries, that’s true, but at the moment nothing has changed.

“We can’t solve problems we have with a transfer.

“At the moment it makes no sense to us. But the transfer window is still open and we will see.”
