Jurgen Klopp has had his final say on any such transfer at Liverpool, saying the club will be signing no one.
Liverpool were poised to sign Shakhtar Donetsk’s Alex Teixeira, but after their initial approach was rebuffed they’re yet to make another.
And with Shakhtar pricing Teixeira at £53 million, Klopp does not intend to sign anyone.
And Klopp has admitted the Reds will not be making any signings on the final day of the transfer window.
“I am not sure what would be best for the journalists out here,” Klopp said at a news conference when asked about incoming transfers.
“I could say that something might happen or I can say the truth, which is that there will not be any incoming transfers. You can finish work for the day.
“The players returning from injury are our new signings.”
However, Klopp suggested there could still be some outgoing transfers, adding: “I am not 100 per cent sure about outgoing transfers.”
