Jurgen Klopp reveals ‘positive’ transfer talks during international break

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted the club have had “positive” talks about possible new signings during the international break.

The Reds are preparing for what could be an important summer transfer window, with a midfield rebuild on the agenda and potential centre-back reinforcements also on the wish list.

With some time to spare thanks to the international break, Klopp and the Liverpool transfer team have been hard at work defining their strategy for the summer and the boss has now admitted he’s happy with how those talks have turned out.

“That’s really all we do during the international break, apart from a few days off,” said Klopp. “I don’t plan training sessions because I don’t know who will be back, how and when”.

When specifically asked about his time discussing new signings and a new sporting director, Klopp continued: “It’s been good. As for the players, it was positive I would say.

“But these are discussions, not decisions. But we are busy, as you can imagine.

The Reds have a number of targets this summer, with Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham high on the wish list, although the German side are trying to complicate matters by offering a new contract and threatening a asking price of 150 million euros.

As a result, many alternative targets have been identified. Chelsea’s Mason Mount is under serious consideration, as are Wolves duo Matheus Nunes and Ruben Neves, while Ligue 1 youngsters Enzo Le Fee and Khephren Thuram are both being pursued. Defensively, Liverpool are also interested in RB Leipzig centre-back Josko Gvardiol – another who could cost more than €100m – and Eintracht Frankfurt free agent Evan Ndicka.

With a new sporting director also on the cards, 90min understand Liverpool have expressed interest in former Tottenham director Paul Mitchell, who will leave Monaco in the summer.
