The Reds have made just two signings in this window in the form of Sepp van den Berg from PEC Zwolle and Harvey Elliott from Fulham, neither of which are likely to feature in the starting XI this campaign.

And, after winning the Champions League and pushing Manchester City extremely close in the Premier League title race, there are obvious arguments for not needing to strengthen this summer.

"That's actually our transfers, but nobody’s interested in hearing that really because that’s how it is," Klopp told ESPN FC why Liverpool’s contract extensions of key players are their transfers this summer.

"You have a player, he's good, you want to keep him, if he signs a new contract then for a few people, it means only that he will be more expensive when we sell him or whatever, or that it doesn't mean anything nowadays.

"In our case, these are our transfers. The new contracts and keeping these boys here is a strong, strong signal for the outside world.

"It's wonderful sign, to be honest. I like the fact that these boys are really at a good football age.

"They won the European Cup, which is good and helps of course because it increases your base."
