Liverpool were quick to land their three summer targets in the transfer window and outgoings have since been the focus, and Jurgen Klopp had a clear message for any fan hoping for some more action.
A midfielder had briefly looked on the agenda with the Reds a known admirer of Aurelien Tchouameni, but a prohibitive price tag and his desire to move to Real Madrid put a stop to any further interest.
Klopp has since been a vocal supporter of his current midfield group, which is now expected to be added to next summer, with Jude Bellingham the name on everyone’s lips.
But that is a possibility for then, current day sees Klopp share a pretty clear message for the remainder of the transfer window, with only two unlikely factors to change the club’s stance.
“If nobody wants to leave, we are done. Or if a bad injury comes in…I don’t hope so! Liverpool fans can start focusing on other things,” Klopp told Sky Sports in Austria.
When pressed about potential outgoings, Klopp said: “Have I ever spoken in situations like this about it? You get the results – not the process, don’t forget!”
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, currently in Liverpool as he works back to fitness, has seen his name linked to West Ham but he would need to push through a move with Klopp no doubt content to have him as an option.
The transfer window closes on September 1, but as Klopp clearly noted, fireworks are not expected from Liverpool between now and then.
