Jurgen Klopp rejects Jordan Henderson’s request to return to Liverpool training early


Klopp has already strengthened his squad with the signings of Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri, while Roma goalkeeper Alisson is reportedly close to making a move to Anfield.

Liverpool are on the verge of confirming the signing of Roma goalkeeper Alisson after agreeing a world record fee for a goalkeeper of €75 million, smashing the previous record held by Gianluigi Buffon. Alisson is in Liverpool and we're at a very advanced stage, but the deal is not done yet. If everything goes smoothly, it will be finalised soon.

When asked about whether or not more business will be conducted for the rest of the transfer window, Klopp said: "I am not 100% sure but maybe it is the first year we don't sell a key player". We continue to work hard to find players and build a great team.

'I will say that a club never acts to damage itself, as every move is made to improve the team overall. "I'm sorry but I can not say any more, I'll say everything later".

Liverpool are closing in on a deal to sign Brazil goalkeeper Alisson as the player has arrived in England. Last year people were saying the same thing about [Mohamad] Salah, [Toni] Rudiger and [Leandro] Paredes, but then we had our best season in ten years, finished third and got to the Champions League semi-finals.

Could Alisson be the final piece in the puzzle as Liverpool search for the holy grail that is the Premier League title?

Klopp said his squad understood additions were needed to create more depth, as they come off a campaign in which they finished fourth in the league.

Selling Alisson to Liverpool does not show "a lack of ambition", says Roma's director of football Monchi, who admits the transfer of the Brazilian is "tough" for fans to take. Evidently, despite the closeness of the high profile move, Liverpool have now moved on and Klopp is content with the midfield options at his disposal.

And fans might not be too fussed after video footage emerged of the shot-stopper on worldwide duty.
