Manager Jurgen Klopp’s attitude towards strengthening his side this summer has left a number of fans at Anfield with mixed opinions after he claimed they wouldn’t have the “biggest transfer window of all time.”

The Reds thumped Tranmere Rovers 6-0 in their opening pre-season friendly last night including a brace and assist from youngster Rhian Brewster in an impressive 45-minute cameo. The performances from the likes of Brewster and his fellow youth prospects as well as returning stars such as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana has left plenty of food for thought in the mind of the lovable German.

Klopp is yet to make a major signing this summer with only 17-year-old Sepp van den Berg joining from PEC Zwolle for £1.3m. Following last night’s match, the boss was asked about potential new signings – he said: “We brought them in already, only you don’t realise it. Rhian Brewster; Oxlade-Chamberlain didn’t play last year; all the young boys today. They are all new players for us, that’s all good. We will see what we do but I don’t think it will be the biggest transfer window of all time.”

His revelation has split the Liverpool fanbase, some suggesting they have faith in Klopp whilst others worry about the lack of squad depth at their disposal going into next season – especially with Manchester City, who beat The Reds to the title by one point, strengthening their side already this summer.
