Liverpool boss discusses transfer plans for the summer

Klopp Scouse Lesson

Liverpool will be looking to strengthen their squad over the summer months.

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has told Sky Sports that does not mind if the players he brings in to the club over the summer are not better than what he already has. He claims if the players are of equal standard to his current crop, they can all push each other on to a higher level.

"If they players we bring in are better, then good, but if they are the same level that would be really good too," he said. "Then we can push each other onto another level."

There are mixed feelings among the Liverpool fans as to whether this season constitutes a success or not, but one thing is for sure, Klopp is an immensely popular figure at Anfield, and a victory in their upcoming Europa League final against Sevilla would ensure Champions League football next season for the red half of Merseyside.

The former Borussia Dortmund coach went on to say that whoever he does bring in to Anfield must understand the value of playing for a club such as Liverpool.

"In the end I hope I have a team together who likes working together and who likes working for Liverpool and who feels the responsibility about the club and the power of this club," Klopp said.

Klopp's influence has certainly started to show over the past few months, with his side looking tenacious out of possession, hunting down their opponents in packs. They also seem to have found their rhythm going forward, with the likes of Roberto Firmino beginning to justify his hefty price-tag.

It will be an interesting summer at Anfield, with obvious squad gaps to fill. There will surely be departures too, with the likes of Christian Benteke and Daniel Sturridge rumoured to be considering their futures with the Reds.
