Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp offered the “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it” argument for their lack of activity in the transfer market as he prepared for the Premier League opener at home to promoted Norwich City.
While Liverpool’s title rivals have strengthened, Klopp’s only purchase, with just hours left until the transfer window shuts on Thursday, was the £1.8 million paid for Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg.
“You should go to Everton, I think they are more busy!” Klopp told a reporter, referring to their big-spending rivals, when asked if there would be any last-minute deals at Anfield.
“Our transfer window was checking options and thinking about it and making decisions, that’s how we do it always. Then if nothing happens it’s because it was not the right option for us.
“We will not make signings just for the sake of signing someone. That makes no sense.”
