Klopp has already ‘identified’ area for new signings this summer – Gillespie

Jurgen Klopp has already been able to identify which area he needs to strengthen in the summer transfer window and that is based on the claim of Gary Gillespie.

Indeed, the former Liverpool player has suggested that the Reds’ midfield is the position which might require a great deal of attention from the manager in the summer.

Liverpool still have very serious hopes of lifting the Premier League title this season after snatching a very late win, courtesy of an own goal against Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Sunday.

Even if Klopp’s men go on to lift the title this season, no team is perfect, and the Liverpool boss might look to add a few new signings to his side in order to maintain the club’s status for next season.

That is why Gillespie believes the Reds are likely to have already laid out their plans to secure new players in midfield in the summer.

“Any time you’re in a situation like this when you’re neck and neck with Manchester City, it’s vital that you’re in the game right until the end,” Gillespie was quoted as saying by Love Sport Radio.

“Liverpool have got these sorts of players but [Sadio] Mane was a bit quiet yesterday.

“You had flashes but he has been the one inspiration this season that has taken up the mantle.

“There’s always that little bit of brilliance within him or the likes of Firmino, just that one turn or little pass, which can be the difference. We have got players there.

“I would just like to see them have a couple more players in the middle of the park with that sort of ability to change a game.

“I’m sure Jurgen has identified that and come the summer, that might be where you strengthen, that area of the pitch.”
