Report: Liverpool may make one more signing before end of transfer window

Liverpool have made a series of signings this summer but are still a little short in the left-back area.

Liverpool may well enter the transfer market to make another signing before the end of the transfer window, the Liverpool Echo suggests.

Injuries have struck during the club's pre-season schedule and there could be room for one more signing before the deadline at the end of the month, as they report that other options are being considered when it comes to a new left-back.

Alberto Moreno is the only recognised player in that position, although it has been suggested that James Milner could act as cover there throughout the season.

Klopp is quoted saying: “Is the activity all over? I have no idea. I don’t think so. We will see what happens."

The Echo's report suggests that Liverpool find the £20 million price tag for Cologne's Jonas Hector too steep and that is one option that will not be pursued for now.

It will be interesting to see if Liverpool do move for another player having made seven signings this summer already, but it is obvious things are a little thin on the ground in the left-back area, and it would be a case of the Reds relying on one player not getting injured for a sustained period when some would say Moreno's performances have not been too reliable to keep him in the left-back role. 

Klopp also mentioned that they simply cannot sign players for just a few weeks and that certain situations, when they are short of players in particular positions, have to be managed but there is certainly a need for some decent competition in the left-back area, even if the Reds are a little short of games in the season ahead.
