Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp refused to be drawn into discussions about the potential departure of Dejan Lovren from the club when speaking at his latest press conference.
Klopp faced the media at Melwood on Friday ahead of the crunch Premier League clash between the Reds and Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday, with both sides vying for the top spot early on in the season.
“No comment on Lovren,” Klopp said. “A potential transfer or not, I don’t want to talk about it.”
The German boss was also asked about whether he would like the Premier League to reconsider the closing date for English clubs to sign players, following the majority decision in September 2017 to close the English transfer window before the start of each season.
“I don’t care when the transfer window closes, so long as it’s at the same time,” Klopp said. “I agreed when the Premier League closed it early but if the rest keep it over, what is the advantage for the Premier League? Some top players are still kind of on the market.”
Liverpool were among the lowest spenders in the Premier League this summer, with only Norwich City spending less on new recruits.
