Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has hinted that Jurgen Klopp could have a busier end to the transfer window than he has so far.

Klopp has made just one signing so far in this window, bringing in left-back Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiakos for just under £12million. Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield but the €30m asking price has so far put the Reds off.

Souness has both played for and managed Liverpool and he believes the lack of signings so far is good news for the youngsters at Anfield. But the pundit reckons there could still be a big signing before the window shuts on October 5. Speaking to Sky Sports, he said:

“I think it’s telling you something. I think Jurgen must feel he’s got players coming through the system to fill the gaps when the current players get injured.

“Going back to my time as a player there, Liverpool always bought players when they were on top of the pile. You were buying players at that time where you don’t know if they’ll come in and be an instant hit.

“I think in recent history Fabinho and Andy Robertson were both that where they got them into the club, had a good look at what they had to offer, they fitted into the system nicely when they got introduced.

“So I think that would be a real vote of confidence to the young players at the football club if they don’t buy. But I have a sneaky feeling that they may still have a go at someone.”
