Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has lavished praise on his new signings as he looks to build a squad capable of finishing in the Premier League’s top four this coming season, the Telegraph reports.

The Reds have signed three new players this summer, starting with German goalkeeper Loris Karius, defender Joel Matip who arrived on a free plus big-money addition Sadio Mane from Southampton.

Neither player is what you would describe as a household name, yet Klopp’s additions are reminscent somewhat of his dealings with Borussia Dortmund where players arrived with great potential.

Speaking to reporters, Klopp assured his side can achieve success without so-called world stars in is side before lavishing praise on his new trio.

“(Loris) Karius is a wonderful goalkeeper, he is still a big talent, he is pretty young but has experience and from the German goalkeeper school which is not too bad,” Klopp told the Telegraph.

“Joel Matip has played five or six years in a row at the highest level, big development and is a free agent so it was a wonderful transfer. Sadio Mane? There is no doubt about him. He could fit in each Champions League team but he is here because he wanted to come here.”

Liverpool have needed to bolster their defensive ranks ahead of the new season, what with Kolo Toure leaving on a free, Martin Skrtel possibly heading to Turkey while Mamadou Sakho was suspended.

Going forward the club have plenty of options, though the potential sale of Christian Benteke could open the door for a new forward signing with many still hopeful of a possible Mario Gotze deal.

The Reds’ main aim this season will be to finish in the top four, but with the competition so strong they may need to add one or two more before the season starts to give them the best chance.
