Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists his players will welcome the help from new signings rather than fear competition for places.
Midfield trio Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri have arrived during the transfer window and the Reds have signed Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker for a fee of €75m (£67m), subject to a medical, according to Sky in Italy.
A hectic end to last season and a number of injuries left Liverpool’s resources thinly stretched, and Klopp is ready to avoid that this season as they look to mount a serious title challenge.”Maybe it is the first year we don’t sell a key player. There was always a lot of change, but in both directions,” he said.”Now it is more in one direction. Big teams, successful teams, if you don’t buy it, you have to build it. That means stay together, bring additions in and make the next step.
