Liverpool transfer news: Jurgen Klopp confirms Reds looking to bring in one or two players this summer

Liverpool manager confirmed there will be several players leaving the club in the summer transfer window.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed the Reds are looking to add two more new faces to the squad in the summer transfer window.

The Merseyside club have completed deals in bringing defender Joel Matip, German goalkeeper Loris Karius and former Southampton star Sadio Mane to Anfield. In addition to this, Marko Grujic returned to his parent club after completing a six month loan deal at Red Star Belgrade.

Klopp had earlier admitted that his Liverpool squad needs to be trimmed ahead of the new season. This came after the former Borussia Dortmund manager confirmed he had 38 players in his squad and was set to offload several of his first team players in the current transfer window.

He reiterated that there will be several of the first team players heading for the exit door as the 49-year-old manager claims that "it makes absolutely no sense" for a player to continue at Liverpool if he is not included in Klopp's plans for the next season.

"That will happen, a few things will happen I am pretty sure. I don't know exactly what but on both sides, it makes no sense to stay in the squad and be in the squad when you don't have a real opportunity to play," Klopp explained, as quoted by Liverpool's official website.

"When there's no chance to play, it makes absolutely no sense. The players are young. We will not give on loan our very young players, absolutely no chance.

"We have a few players, maybe who want to leave us and I am pretty sure it will happen – and one or two more players will join us from other clubs. It's a long time until the 31st of August and we have to work a little bit."
