Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish says the club will not publicly talk about players they are looking to sign. Dalglish is expected to make some changes to the squad he inherited from Roy Hodgson early this year but insists that they will go about their business in a quieter fashion.
"Pre-season has not started. We don't begin until Monday, but obviously transfers are part of football. You get people moving in and moving out," Dalglish told Sky Sports News.
"We are not going to speculate on any players we have or any players anyone else has. There has been plenty of talk in the newspapers and if you read them and believed them, we'd have a squad of about 300 next year.
"We've just got to get on with what we've got to do. We do our business and we try to do it properly, with respect to other people, and we will continue to do it.
"The names they conjure up in the newspapers, sometimes they will be accurate and sometimes they will inaccurate.
"There's no point asking about anybody because we're not going to talk about them, and we never have done.
"Managers don't talk about individuals and I think that's the right way to be."
