Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool willing and able to spend for 'right' players

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool will not hesitate to spend a lot of money in the transfer market, but only for the "right player" at the "right moment."

Liverpool have £142m to work with following the sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, and having already broken the club's transfer record to sign Virgil van Dijk for £75m, Klopp said the club will not be shy to spend their windfall.

However, Klopp cautioned that he will not only be looking in the pile of the most expensive players as he tries to find the correct fit for his squad.

"When the player is the right player it is not important how expensive he was. He needs to fit in the team, that's why we paid the price," Klopp told multiple English newspapers.

"This club will do what we have to do. The owners are ready for that. That was the sign for it but it doesn't mean we only spend in this [expensive] category.

"It's all about timing, doing the right thing at the right moment. If the player is the right player this club will pay big money. If it's not the right player, it's not the value of the player.

"The transfer fees only jumped in the last year. We cannot say the exact numbers but was it £40m for Mo Salah? I would say that's decent money but it looks like, 'what's that?' Everybody asks Roma, 'How can you do that?' That's strange."

And Klopp also said he must find a balance in bringing in new players and developing the players already under contract at Anfield.

"It still needs to be the mix of bringing in the new player and letting the group grow," he said. "That's how it is. If you always change four or five positions it's wrong. You don't make the team better. You can make it better in the long term but nobody is waiting for the long term."
