Klopp insists Lazar Markovic could still feature in Liverpool’s future plans, saying he still has time to prove his worth to the club.
The 22-year-old spent last season on loan with Fenerbache, but a hamstring injury hampered his time at the club.
The Serbian winger was expected to be sold this summer, but, Klopp insists no decision has been made yet.
“Everyone knows that Lazar is a very quick player but he was not at 100 per cent [in pre-season training] and there was some doubt as to how it would be,” said the German manager.
“Since then he became better and better and he is in much better shape.
“He’s a good boy and works hard. At the end we will have to see how we will build our squad.
“We have time until August 31 or maybe something will happen earlier, or something will happen on the 31st or something will never happen.
“There is no final decision in this moment. We need all these players for the games and our training sessions and he is part of it.”
