Liverpool legend Barnes predicts quiet transfer window for Klopp

Liverpool legend John Barnes is expecting a quiet summer transfer window for Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds are two wins away from clinching their first Premier League title in 30 years.

And Barnes expects Klopp to keep faith in his current squad.

"I don't think there are any young players ready to play in the first team," Barnes told BonusCodeBets. "Liverpool will be quiet in the transfer market, but they'll rely on the senior players that they have.

"There are a few young players who we see playing in the cup matches and, in the squads, but there aren't necessarily any Raheem Sterlings, or young Robbie Fowlers or Steven Gerrards."

He added: "I don't want to put them under pressure.

"So, while I expect Liverpool to be quiet in the transfer market – you've got the young boy, Curtis Jones, who obviously has made an impression in the first team every now and again.

"In terms of him forcing his way into the team ahead of the more senior players, I don't think that that's necessarily going to happen."
