Amid Coutinho shock, Klopp admits he is looking to sign new midfielder

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that his club are still looking to sign another midfielder before the close of the current transfer window.

The Reds could be short of quality midfield options ahead of the start of the new Premier League season as Philippe Coutinho is strongly linked with a move to Barcelona, having handed in a transfer request while Adam Lallana is set to miss the start of the season through injury.

Klopp has now said of his plans to sign a new midfielder, “We don’t have too many midfield players in the moment who have experience.

“Are we looking still for players? Yes. That is the truth. But we were looking for players before Adam was injured. Now he is injured and Phil is injured so we have two less.

“It doesn’t make the situation more comfortable. You cannot be really prepared for situations like this but we have time.”

The Reds have added the likes of Mohamed Salah, Dominic Solanke and Andy Robertson to their ranks as they attempt to bolster their squad ahead of the new season.

After finishing fourth in the Premier League last season, they will be attempting to win major silverware during the upcoming season.
