Lallana: Klopp key to Liverpool making big name signings

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana is confident the presence of manager Jurgen Klopp will help them land top names in the summer market.

Lallana is convinced that the manager's pulling power will prove decisive in negotiations.

“Getting in the top four certainly enhances our chances of attracting top names," Lallana told the Liverpool Echo.

“There's a really good core in the squad here so it's about building around it. We trust the boss, the recruitment staff and the owners. I am sure the funds are there and the manager will have his targets.

“I'm convinced that if the manager meets a player then he'll have a great chance of getting him. He's got that ability to charm a player and makes you feel that you want to play for him. It's a good asset for Liverpool to have going into the summer.

"A bit of extra competition never hurt anyone. I think it will improve all of us. No disrespect, but strength in depth this season has possibly been an area which can be improved on."
