Liverpool boss Klopp: We want to buy - but they need the right CV

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits it will take something special to add to his squad this summer.

Klopp says pinpointing suitable targets will not be easy for the Reds' recruitment team, and will only green-light moves for the right player.

“The CV (we are looking for), it's not easy to fulfil," he said. “The age group of the team is good in the moment. In two or three years, maybe it'll be different but for the moment, it's good.

“It depends on what you want – is it a good age for selling? Probably not. But is it a good age for performing? Yes. So there's a lot of things we have to think about. It's an interesting period.

“Last summer, we did Sepp (van den Berg), Harvey (Elliott) and Adrian and people were not happy that we didn't do any more than that because they think we need this and that here and there.

“We will see if we can make the right decisions again. It doesn't depend on us alone, it's the market, it's the things around that will have an influence.

“It's not that we are going mad about what is out there – we want the right player, we don't just sign any."
