Klopp satisfied with Liverpool defensive options

Virgil van Dijk wants to quit Southampton with Liverpool hoping to sign the defender

The Blues, along with Premier League rivals Liverpool, are thought to be the front-runners in the race to sign the 12-time capped global, though Southampton favour a sale to the former due to Liverpool's rumoured illegal approach for Van Dijk earlier this summer.

Klopp says improving on what he's already got isn't easy and he's prepared to push on with Ragnar Klavan and Joe Gomez providing back up for his first choice centre-back combination of Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip.

"Look out there and tell me five that would make us stronger", he demanded.

Southampton's position remains unchanged despite Van Dijk openly expressing his discontent - but it looks unlikely that we will see him line out for the Saints again, and it's quite possible Van Dijk could be lining out for one of the top six come September. We can not force the things and we would never get a centre-back just because [of the sake of it].

"What I said is the truth". "With Champions League football now secure, Klopp knows this is an opportunity his club simply can not ignore".

Klopp had maintained he is not desperate to bring in defensive recruits before kicking off the new league campaign against Watford on Saturday. You saw it. He has matured 100 per cent.
