Jurgen Klopp has downplayed rumours linking Liverpool with a
move for Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho, RB Leipzig's Timo Werner and Paris
Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe.
A report at the end of April claimed that Klopp had been on
the phone to Mbappe’s dad as he looked to persuade the PSG forward to make a
switch to Liverpool, while Sancho has also been linked – but Manchester United
seem to be the main suitors.
When asked about the recent speculation linking Liverpool
with a host of names, Klopp told beIN Sports (via Goal): "Sadio Mane is young
enough and Mo Salah is young enough to be in that group for the next few years.
"I am completely happy with the boys that I have, but I
never thought about the others.
"When I am at a club then I work with the players I have, I
don't dream about other players. If we can get one of them in the future, we
will see, but we will make the best of the situation we have."
When pushed further, Klopp added: "Look, I cannot answer
those kinds of questions without creating headlines the next day, I know that’s
what I don't want to do. I love them all and there are a few more players out
"They are all exceptional players. The players they are now
because of their own attitude, because of their skills and all that stuff and I
love watching them, but I have no problem that I never trained one of them."
