With the month-long World Cup being played smack bang in the middle of summer, it’s been very difficult for many clubs to get their transfer business done.

However, Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool seem to be coping just fine.

They had already agreed a deal for Naby Keita 12 months ago with the Guinean international finally arriving on July 1.

By then, they had also wrapped up the signing of Fabinho - who was announced just days after they had lost to Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

And now, they’ve added Xherdan Shaqiri to their ranks for just £13 million.

Meanwhile, it looks as though the Reds will not lose any of their key players this summer with Mohamed Salah recently signing a new contract, while Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino aren’t being linked with moves away.

But Klopp wants more.


Liverpool may have already signed three players but he still wants to add two further additions to his squad following Shaqiri’s arrival.

According to the Telegraph, Klopp still wants to sign a No.10 and a goalkeeper in this window.

That will be very welcome news for Liverpool fans.

But who?

Well, Nabil Fekir appeared to be heading to Anfield before the World Cup but an issue with his medical saw the deal collapse.

Whether Klopp and co. will go back in for him remains to be seen but he would be the perfect candidate for that No.10 role.


As for the goalkeeper, Loris Karius made another awful mistake against Tranmere in midweek and the club have been heavily linked with Roma’s Alisson.

However, reports this week have suggested that Klopp could show faith in Danny Ward - last season’s third-choice ‘keeper.

But it seems that Klopp is still looking to sign a new No.1 with Karius and Simon Mignolet running out of chances, while Ward has very little Premier League experience.

A No.10 and a goalkeeper and this Liverpool side would be complete in Klopp’s eyes.
