Jurgen Klopp is adamant Liverpool won’t sell Naby Keita before the transfer window closes

Jurgen Klopp thinks it’s impossible Liverpool could sell Naby Keita in this transfer window without replacing him.

The midfielder has entered the final year of his contract and Liverpool risk losing a £52m purchase on a free transfer next summer.

But Klopp, who has reiterated that he believes Liverpool won’t be making any more signings this year, also thinks it will be difficult to sign someone of similar quality in the next fortnight.

He said: ‘Naby sell now? And not replace him? Yes, sure, it would be very difficult to replace him – no, that’s not possible; of course not. But it’s not the plan.

“We’re done [in the transfer market]; It’s not like we think a player can leave and we’re not replacing him. No chance. no Naby won’t go, but if he would – but he won’t – then of course a replacement is needed, that’s clear.”

Liverpool were plagued by injuries in midfield, with Thiago Alcantara, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Curtis Jones all absent from Monday’s game against Manchester United.

Klopp has long insisted he’s happy with his options in the center of the pitch, reiterating he won’t settle for second best in the transfer market and his budget is limited.

“Yes, [we have what we need], if they’re all fit, 100 per cent, but even then we’re always looking for reinforcements and we’ve always done that, but we have to. It has to be the right player and if the right player isn’t available then we tend to say, ‘Okay, let’s take care of what we have before we sign a player who isn’t 100 percent the right player is.’

“So this situation has never changed. Now we have more injuries than we imagined and of course it would be cool to have a new midfielder now. But we don’t know when the boys will come back. So you just can’t do that.

“And then there is another fact: We are not responsible [the time] I’m here what we pretend we’re not. But that’s the situation, we’re told things and then we deal with them. It was always the same.”
