Klopp relaxed on transfer plans

Jurgen Klopp is refusing to panic despite the lack of new signings by Liverpool since the end of last season.

The Reds have only snapped up Mohamed Salah and Dominic Solanke so far this summer but Klopp remains hopeful that he can complete the signings of RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita, Southampton centre-back Virgil van Dijk and Hull City left-back Andy Robertson before the end of next month.

"If I could decide alone, we would be complete from the last day of last season. Done, shoot, there's the new team," he said.

"Thank-you very much and all the rest. But that is dreamland and I am used to doing all the things.

"We really feel good that we can keep the team together that played last season. What we do from now will help us to improve."

The Reds hope to sign Robertson for £8million and are set to increase their offer for Guinea international midfielder Keita after having an initial bid of £57million rejected.

"It is always complicated, if you want to buy," Klopp added. "If the (selling) club needs the money or has another solution then the chances are higher, especially in England.

"It's all possible. It's more likely doing that than doing nothing."

Meanwhile, Lucas Leiva is on the verge of leaving Anfield and signing for Lazio.

Liverpool  are 80/1 to win the Premier League title in 2017/18 and 4/7 to beat Watford at Vicarage Road on the opening weekend of the campaign.
