• Liverpool have completed the signing of Sadio Mane, Loris Karius and Joel Matip this summer.
  • Klopp expects players to leave this summer, while the academy players will not be allowed to leave on loan

Liverpool's transfer activity it yet to be completed and Jurgen Klopp has confirmed further additions will be made before the 31 August deadline. The Reds have already brought in three signings in the summer to add to one during the January transfer window and the German coach has indicated that there could be at least a couple of more additions to the squad.

Klopp has also made it clear that players, who are out of favour and unhappy with lack of game time will be allowed to leave for pastures new. Christian Benteke, Lucas Leiva and Joe Allen have been linked with moves away after failing to nail down a regular place in the starting XI last season. The former, who was brought in by former manager Brendan Rodgers for £32.5m ($43m) from Aston Villa is not in the ex-Borussia Dortmund manager's plans and is likely to be sold with a number of other Premier League clubs showing interest.

The Reds' boss, however, has reiterated his desire to keep the talented youngsters at the club and has made it clear that they will not be allowed to leave on loan. He is keen to retain them at the club and let them develop their team game with the coaches and players at Melwood rather than develop their individual talent at other clubs.

"That will happen [transfers] a few things will happen I am pretty sure. I don't know exactly what but on both sides, it makes no sense to stay in the squad and be in the squad when you don't have a real opportunity to play. When there's no chance to play, it makes absolutely no sense," Klopp said following Liverpool's pre-season win over Wigan, as quoted on the Reds' official site.

"The players are young. We will not give on loan our very young players, absolutely no chance. We have a few players, maybe who want to leave us and I am pretty sure it will happen – and one or two more players will join us from other clubs. It's a long time until the 31st of August and we have to work a little bit," he added.

The Reds have brought in Marko Grujic, Joel Matip, Loris Karius and Sadio Mane thus far and are linked with moves for other players. The manager is actively searching for a centre-back following the departures of Kolo Toure and Martin Skrtel and according to BBC Sport, is on the verge of signing FC Augsburg skipper Ragnar Klavan.
