Liverpool are unlikely to bring in any new faces this summer following the signings of Sepp van den Berg and Harvey Elliott.
There is a strong possibility that Liverpool will do no more business before the transfer window shuts on August 8th.
Klopp is in no rush for a forward while Milner and Gomez are good enough backups at left-back. [Liverpool Echo]

The Liverpool Echo report that Jurgen Klopp is keen to keep together the nucleus of the squad for next season, and that plans to bring in a backup left-back as well as a versatile forward no longer appear to be on the agenda for the Reds this summer.
With Alberto Moreno now at Villarreal following his release from the club (per BBC Sport), Liverpool fans may have expected the club to bring in a new left-back this summer, with the likes of Junior Firpo linked. Still, as the report outlines, Klopp is eager to use Joe Gomez and James Milner as a backup to Andy Robertson next season, which raised some eyebrows from these supporters.
Here are how some Liverpool fans reacted to the news…
Guess we aren’t winning the league then.

If it’s true it’s going to be a long season and fans will start to turn especially if we start picking up injuries and our backup ant quite good enough. It’s a big mistake not to add players this summer

Just saying that time were we kept drawing games cause gomez, matip and trent were out and clyne was out on loan kinda left us flat at the game. We will regret this like how we should signed someone in jan

We won one trophy. We have 5 competitions to compete in this year, if the squad wasn’t good enough to compete on 4 fronts last year, why would it be good enough this year. I’m not satisfied with one cup in 7 years, maybe others are

Sounds like klopp didn’t learn from the mistake he did when he let Clyne go on loan last season, we will see what kind of excuses he will give this time

Stupid if true seems a little success has made us arrogant city just won the domestic treble and are still strengthening while we’re getting complacent

Pathetic Mentality By @LFC While Others Are Strengthening. Keita, Oxlade Chamberlain & Joe Gomez Injury Prone I Can’t Believe Klopp Thinks This Team Will Be Fit & Good Enough
