Jurgen Klopp admit Liverpool missed out on transfer target
Jurgen Klopp has admitted that Liverpool’s midfielder target opted to join a different team.
Klopp also confirmed that Liverpool will be looking forward to bringing in another midfielder before the end of the transfer window.
The Reds midfielder target in the window was Aurelien Tchouameni who joined Real Madrid ahead of Liverpool.
Speaking to the media on Tuesday, the German gaffer had this to say:
“We were going for midfielder but that midfielder decided to go to another club. That can happen,” he said.
“Some players are not available now but for us really interesting. That’s how it is – so we can make that decision”.
Klopp also insisted that since he would need a new midfielder, the decision does not lie with him alone
“Let me say it like this, from time to time, I would like to risk a bit more [in the market] but I don’t decide that. We have a great team and we will really try to squeeze everything out of this season,” he said.
“I am not careful [with how much Liverpool spend], we get told what is possible and what isn’t. That’s it. In this range we try to work it. There’s no criticism, we became champions in a season when we didn’t sign anyone. We have an existing team as well. All the players we have here we want to be here.”
