Liverpool have 'two stars in crosshairs' after Jurgen Klopp's transfer admission

Liverpool are considering moves for AC Milan’s Ismael Bennacer and Inter Milan’s Marcelo Brozovic according to reports in Italy, as Jurgen Klopp contemplates dipping into the market for midfield reinforcements. The Reds boss previously hinted that his side had concluded their transfer business this summer, however, a worrying hamstring injury to Thiago Alcantaraon Saturday has only added to the club’s injury crisis and seen Klopp forced to re-evaluate.

Already without midfield options Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones and the unwell Naby Keita for the trip to Fulham on Saturday, Liverpool’s woes worsened shortly into the second half at Craven Cottage as the influential Thiago pulled up injured. Following the setback, Klopp admitted the Reds could well seek to sign reinforcements before the transfer window closes in just over three weeks’ time, but insisted that a move must “make sense” in order for that to happen.

“We actually have enough (midfielders),” said the Reds boss. “The problem is we are now punished for something that isn’t our responsibility. Things like this can happen. We will see. A transfer must make sense now and in the long term.

“We have eight midfielders. We still have enough midfielders. It’s not that we lack midfielders, it’s just some of them are injured. This isn’t a good situation, I don’t like it at all. We have to see how we react on that, but for sure not panic.”
