Jürgen Klopp’s ‘honest’ statement prompts Liverpool to ‘accelerate’ a $86 million midfield transfer.
Liverpool is reportedly mulling a transfer for a player worth $86 million, while Jürgen Klopp was frank and honest following the Brighton setback.
“This is insufficient. We must improve, and we will “He said on Twitter, concisely summarizing the existing situation and what needs to be done next.
It remains to be seen whether Jürgen Klopp’s current group can perform better without additional transfers this month. The Reds are not expected to be active, but the demand for a new player is only going to grow.

Klopp’s open admission
Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp was candid and honest after his side’s defeat to Brighton, though he hardly had any other choice just a day after passionately explaining why his team could not make another signing this month. “I can’t remember a worse game. I honestly can’t,” Klopp told BBC Sport at the Amex Stadium. “Brighton played very well. They deserved to win. It was a very organized team against a not-very-organized team. “Of course, we’re very concerned. How can you not be after a game like this?”
Liverpool needs to make a shift. They can’t keep doing what they’re doing now if their form or results don’t improve after the World Cup.
Solution for possible transfer
Liverpool may openly say that they cannot buy a midfielder this month, but The Mirror claims that a deal for Wolves star Rben Neves might be on the cards.
Neves was a youth player at FC Porto under Pep Lijnders and has never made the step up since arriving in England while Wolves were still in the Championship.
Neves, who was formerly valued at $86 million (£70 million/€79 million), has only 18 months left on his contract and is also admired by Newcastle United, but they are thought to be reluctant to pay him till the summer before making an offer.
Meanwhile, the price may fall low enough to entice Liverpool to come to the table, according to the article. The 25-year-old isn’t the most mobile of footballers, but he can’t do much worse than the Reds’ existing midfield options.
