Klopp details how Liverpool can keep Salah and Co. at Anfield
The Reds have seen star turns such as Philippe Coutinho head for the exits while Emre Can could be next, but they are working to retain prized assets
Jurgen Klopp has no intention of losing more key men at Liverpool, with the Reds aware of what it will take to keep Mohamed Salah and Co. happy.
Philippe Coutinho saw his head turned by Barcelona in January, leading to a £142 million move, while Emre Can is continuing to run down his contract at Anfield and could be next to head for the exits.
Salah is among the star turns to be generating transfer talk at present, amid strong links to Real Madrid, and Klopp is aware that sporting and financial factors have to be considered by the Reds as they seek to keep prized assets on Merseyside.
“We are in constant talks, but our first job is to create something that everybody wants to be part of.
“We cannot convince them with money, we have to do it with the football. I believe it is a really interesting project here at the moment.”
Adding to that project is the priority for Klopp heading forward, with Liverpool having opted to wait until the summer before reinvesting the cash generated from Coutinho’s sale back into their squad.
Klopp added on his transfer plans: “We want to keep this team together and strengthen it.”
He said: “Performance on the pitch and the reinvestment in our squad is always a priority and following the club’s record signing last month we will look to invest again in the summer.”
Liverpool made Virgil van Dijk their record signing in January, with £75m paid to Premier League rivals Southampton, and they already have a summer deal in place for RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita.
