Jürgen Klopp is very excited to see what comes of his Liverpool squad next season and sees only the positives of the progress so far.
Five wins from the Red’s last seven league outings ensured fourth place by a single point ahead of Arsenal, and Klopp is already looking to add to his squad for what could be a much busier 2017-18 campaign.
The new CEO Peter Moore insists he’s aware of the club’s plans in the summer transfer window and understands the requirements that need to be met this Summer.
In his season review on the Liverpool official website, Klopp said: “I know that we are good already but we have so much space to improve – I love it.
“Being really good and feeling there’s not a lot more possible – that’s still okay but you think how can you keep this? We can really improve. That’s what I’m really looking forward to.
“We have to, obviously, because around us we have a lot but we will really be a challenger, we will fight.
“We will play good football on the good days, on the less good days we will still fight for the result. I really feel positive.
“I’m really optimistic for our future, not because I’m crazy but only because I know what we have, I know what we will get, I know what we can get, and I know that we really have a super bunch of people – knowledge, character – not just the players, all around.”
More recently, rumours have emerged that Virgil Van Dijk is still on the cards and Salah has agreed personal terms with Liverpool. We have also seen Klopp bolster his young attacking force with a £3m plus add ons move for Dominic Solanke who recently put England U20’s into the next round of the World Cup after his goal finalised the 1-0 result in England’s favour.
With these rumoured signings who would clearly make a huge impact on how Liverpool lineup and play next season, could Klopp mount a serious title challenge next season or will the focus be more so on the Champions League? We’ll find out soon enough.
