There will be no more arrivals at Liverpool in this transfer window says manager Jurgen Klopp, unless they experience injuries or sell someone.
The Reds have already added Darwin Nunez, Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsey to the squad since the end of last season, and have been consistently linked with a move for a midfielder in recent weeks.
Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham and Sporting CP’s Matheus Nunes have been reported targets, but Klopp has appeared to rule out a move for either, or anyone else, in this window.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the German coach said when asked if there would be further signings: “Unless we have injuries or player sales, no, we have our squad [for the coming season].
“Hopefully, there won’t be any [injuries], so Liverpool supporters can focus on other things.”
Former Fulham youngster Carvalho has impressed in pre-season so far, while Darwin bagged four goals in a 5-0 rout of RB Leipzig on Thursday, with Carvalho providing the assist for the Uruguayan striker’s fourth at Red Bull Arena.

Liverpool came close to an unprecedented quadruple last season, winning the EFL Cup and FA Cup, before being pipped to the Premier League title by Manchester City and losing the Champions League final 1-0 to Real Madrid.
However, Klopp is determined not to let the last day denial in the league and defeat in Paris sour their achievements, and wants his players to use any negatives to their advantage in the new season.
“It ended how we liked it – it ended with a parade,” he said. “We would’ve loved to celebrate even more. If there’s anything good about losing it is that there’s always the next day.
“If you’re smart enough, you can pick up information about your defeat in order to do better and that’s the plan. There was obvious disappointment in losing but I was over it pretty quickly.
“The parade helped me massively and let’s try it again. Nothing would be different had we won the league or the Champions League. I’d still be sat here wearing the same shirt and the same shorts. We’ll try to use it and analyse it in the right way.”
