Klopp reveals plans to strengthen Liverpool midfield

Jurgen Klopp admits Liverpool are still looking for further additions to their squad, but says his squad is already in fine shape. 

Specifically, Klopp believes that their summer transfer business has already delivered them a new midfielder – James Milner.

Milner was pushed into left-back service last season as his famed versatility was fully utilised by Klopp.

However, with Alberto Moreno now fit again after injury and Andy Robertson signed from Hull, Klopp insists his midfield has been indirectly strengthened.

“Until August 31, we run through the world with eyes open,” he said. “It’s not that we decide on our own – it’s also about other teams.

“This pre-season has brought us new players. Alberto Moreno is 100 per cent back, which is really nice after a difficult year.

“Andy Robertson has shown all the skills he’s got. He’s still adapting to our kind of football but you can see what a threat he can be offensively.

“That means James Milner is free to play in midfield. Without going into the transfer market, we’ve got a new midfielder, which is nice.”
