Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that the club is ‘busy’ in talks with players for the summer transfer window
The Reds manager was speaking ahead of his team’s match against Manchester City, with Liverpool languishing at the bottom of the Premier League table.
Despite competing in all four competitions last season and winning two trophies, Liverpool will end the current season with only the Community Shield.
This is due to injuries in their aging squad, with former stalwarts Jordan Henderson and Fabinho struggling, as well as key injuries up front and in defence, with Diogo Jota and Luogo Diaz missing the majority of the season.
A summer rebuild appears to be on the cards, with ongoing speculation linking the club to a big-money move for Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham, as well as Chelsea star Mason Mount.
When asked if he had any time during the two-week international break to plan for 2023/24, Klopp said it was the only thing on his mind.
“That’s actually all we do during the international break,” he explained.
“Aside from a few days off, we don’t plan training sessions because I don’t know who is returning or when, so we do that.”
When asked if the club has made any progress in terms of signings or replacing departing sporting director Julian Ward, he said: “It was good, on the player side I’m positive.”
“However, these are discussions, not decisions.” But, as you can imagine, we’re very busy.”
