Klopp patient on new arrivals

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah in action for previous club Roma.

Jurgen Klopp remains unconcerned by Liverpool's lack of transfer activity so far this summer.

The Reds have brought in just two new faces during the transfer window so far having snared Mohamed Salah from Roma and youngster Dominic Solanke from Chelsea.

Salah will be a member of the first-team squad next season but Solanke is more likely to be a peripheral player as he continues his development.

Some of the Reds' main rivals have been busy already, with both Manchester United and Arsenal making big statements with some high-profile deals, but manager Klopp insists he still has plenty of time to bring in his own targets.

He said: "If any fans of us think what the other teams are doing and why we don't do anything, then I can't help.

"We cannot buy players only because other teams buy players. We do business as good as we can do it.

"We are completely in it and we are convinced about the way we are doing it. Nervous fans, I don't have to write a message for this.

"We have [until] the 31st of August. We have time and some things need time.

"If we make transfers, it's because we want to do it. If not, then it's because we don't want to do it. That's how it is and we have to wait a little bit."

Liverpool begin the new Premier League campaign with a trip to Watford and they are 8/15 to pick up all three points.

The Anfield side are 12/1 to win the Premier League 2017-18 title.
