Liverpool boss Klopp working with record £200M transfer kitty

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has a club record transfer kitty to work with this summer.

The Mirror says Klopp has been handed a £200 million transfer kitty this summer after taking the Reds back into the Champions League, but his only recruits so far have been £36.9m Mohamed Salah from Roma and Chelsea's out-of-contract youngster Dominic Solanke.

Liverpool have backed off from Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk but will revive their interest if the centre-back's “circumstances change".

Liverpool's pursuit of Naby Keita is similarly complex. The 22-year-old has made it clear to RB Leipzig that he wants to move to Anfield. However, Leipzig sporting director Ralf Rangnick, a close friend of Klopp's, is adamant that a deal will not be struck at any price.

Once again, it will be left to the player to force the issue. Keita made his feelings clear at a meeting with Rangnick last week.
