Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp backed to make moves for TWO Tottenham stars | Football | Sport
They finished just one point behind Manchester City, though there don’t appear to be any areas that majorly need improving for the Reds.
Divock Origi proved his worth as a back-up striker with some important goals while Joe Gomez, Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip were capable partners of Virgil van Dijk in defence.
But with reported doubts over the futures of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, Liverpool hero John Aldridge wants Klopp to dip into the transfer market.
And he has suggested Tottenham stars Moura and Son as potential signings.
Aldridge wrote for The Sunday World: “Moura is a tricky forward who could slot into the team if any of the front three were out and the same could be said of his team-mate Son Heung-min, although I would be surprised if Spurs allowed the South Korean to leave after his outstanding season.
“It may be that Klopp and his excellent team of scouts have an ace up their sleeves as they look for an extra striker, with their signings over the last couple of years confirming they tend to get things right when they bring players to Anfield, so I’m confident they will get this one right.”
Liverpool are yet to make a signing this summer.
They have been linked with moves for attacking players Nabil Fekir and Nicolas Pepe.
But Klopp himself was recently tight-lipped on potential transfers.
He said: “It is always more difficult the better the team gets [to improve it], but that’s a good sign.
“Transfers, we are not there to excite the people out there and think, ‘Wow, a new player!’ and stuff like that.
“Actually, the job is to improve the team and there are different ways [to do that], we’ve said that always.
“It’s about training – actually, I think that’s the best way to do [it] and if you have to sign somebody, you sign somebody.
“Then, if you have him then you don’t think immediately about doing the same thing in the same position again.
“The team is pretty well balanced, so that’s how it is. For sure, our plans are not for the public, that’s how it is.
“But will it be the biggest transfer window of LFC? No, probably not, but I think it would have been a surprise if I said yes.
“Our eyes are always open, we always look, but what happens if and when, there is nothing to say about in the moment.”
