Jurgen Klopp asks young Liverpool fans which players he should sign

Published 10 Comments

Jurgen Klopp has already made a few notable signings this summer and is close to adding the Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum to his ranks after Liverpool agreed a £25 million fee with Newcastle United earlier today.

But which players do the fans want Klopp to sign before the summer transfer window closes?

Well, the man himself posed this very question to four smart and knowledgeable Reds’ supporters - all of whom are around the age, and we’re guessing here, of about 10.

The four young fans got the opportunity to meet Klopp, courtesy of Subway, and answered some of the Liverpool boss’s questions.

The first of which was: “Who would be your dream player for me to sign?”

Marco Reus

“Marco Reus,” the first young fan responded.

“Even after the games we played [Borussia Dortmund]?” Klopp asked.

“Yep,” came the reply.


Cristiano Ronaldo

Another lad then chirped up with: “[Cristiano] Ronaldo”.

No reaction to Klopp from that one.

Luis Suarez

One of the other kids then says: “It has to be, the one and only, Luis Suarez. He’s already a legend here.”

The final fan, a young girl, then adds: “Neymar”.


Klopp responds

“Too bad,” Klopp responds, before adding: “The only player I know personally is Marco.”

The Reds’ boss then corrects himself by saying: “Oh no. I met Luis Suarez when he came to Melwood visiting his former teammates.”

Klopp continues: “Great players - all of them - but I think it will not happen. Not now in this next transfer window; it would be really difficult.”

Although disappointed, the four young fans took the news well.

Liverpool's transfer activity so far

As well as Wijnaldum - confirmation of that particular signing is imminent - Klopp has also completed deals for goalkeeper Loris Karius, defenders Ragnar Klavan and Joel Matip, and the former Southampton forward Sadio Mane this summer.

Liverpool have spent just over £40 million on those four deals - Matip was a free signing from Schalke - while the club recouped £15 million by selling Jordon Ibe to Bournemouth over the weekend.
