‘I was wrong’ – The Reds manager Jurgen Klopp reveals major Liverpool transfer U-turn as new midfielder sought before deadline

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that the club is now actively looking for a new midfielder before the summer transfer deadline.

The German had previously stated that his team did not require midfield reinforcements despite missing the likes of Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita, Curtis Jones, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain due to an ongoing injury crisis.

Klopp, on the other hand, has now admitted that such a stance was incorrect, with Liverpool looking for one more signing before the window closes next Thursday night (September 1), to add to the earlier summer signings of Darwin Nunez, Fabio Carvalho, and Calvin Ramsay.

That need has been exacerbated by a dismal start to the season, which has left the Community Shield winners trailing in the Premier League title race with just two points and no wins from three games before Saturday’s visit of newly-promoted Bournemouth to Anfield.

“We are looking for it and if it is the right player we need him, and if it is not the right player we don’t need him,” Klopp told reporters on Friday.

“[Our need] changed, of course. I know we have had this discussion since it all started and I am the one who said we don’t need a midfielder, and you were all right and I was wrong. That’s the situation.

“But the specific point doesn’t change – we will do something but it has to be the right one.”

While it is unclear which midfielders are on Liverpool’s transfer shortlist with time running out before the deadline, the club has recently been heavily linked with Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham, Inter Milan’s Nicolo Barella, and Brighton’s Moises Caicedo, as well as long-term Manchester United and Chelsea target Frenkie de Jong, at Barcelona.
