After being linked repeatedly with Timo Werner for much of the year, the Reds chose to avoid a move last month while the German international made a change from RB Leipzig to Chelsea for around 50 million of pounds sterling.
And after a three-month period that saw sources of income take a major hit during the suspension of Premier League football, Klopp should not head to the window armed with a massive transfer kitty.
Given that the recently crowned champions are 23 points ahead and have only lost three top games in their last 71 games, Klopp refuses to panic about the impact of coronavirus on his club’s ability to attract players.
The situation surrounding COVID-19 is expected to lead to a more low-key window into football this summer, but Klopp says he and the Liverpool recruiting team are still looking for potential solutions for his team.
“Are there players on the market who could also help us? Probably, yes, “said Klopp.
“It is a challenge for us to improve a very good football team. But time is also a challenge. Nobody knows what the future holds for all of us, so how do we make decisions, really expensive decisions, about how we deal with this?
“This team is what it is. This does not mean that we do not want to strengthen it if we have the opportunity or if we have the financial resources. It will always happen. We will always try.
“But at the moment, it’s a difficult period and this team is putting pressure on each other, by itself, internally in training, the quality is high.
“It is a difficult year for all the football clubs in the world and it is not just a time when we are talking about transfers as if the rest around us had not happened. It is not possible. At least, not for us. We can’t do this like this.
“Other clubs may be able to, but this club is run in a specific way. This is our way and here we are. Is this the best way? I don’t know, but we will stick to it. ”
Another Liverpool player has been strongly linked recently: Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara, with the Reds supposed to want to bring the Spanish international to Anfield this summer.
Anfield sources said Thiago was not on the Liverpool shortlist this summer, but reports continue to quote the 29-year-old in connection with the Reds.
Klopp was shy when asked about his apparent interest after Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Aston Villa, where the champions struggled to create something notable until late.
Liverpool is Premier League champion
And the German says that such a performance was understandable given “the most difficult circumstances” of Anfield’s very first Premier League match to be held in July.
He added, “You can be critical and you will be critical in the future. It is not so pleasant in life but it is normal that people forget. We saw a match against Aston Villa under the most difficult circumstances in a difficult period of our lives on difficult terrain.
“We played against Barcelona, for example (in May 2019), with a lot of changes and we played an exceptional match. One of the best matches of this team. Whatever your first 11, and I have an idea, these [other] the boys did the job.
“One day when the team is not performing at the highest level, when the ground is dry like the Sahara and the wind is blowing like madness and you are on a ship over there on the sea, it is really difficult to make an impression.

“So if you have a lack of rhythm or if you change position, that’s how it is. Now we are talking about these players are not putting enough pressure on the top 11? Or are they not close enough?
“Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, if he is not in your first XI, he has played incredible games for this club. He won the single game almost against City a year or two ago. He is not the worst footballer since then. It is not easy.
“I cannot judge people on a match where the whole team is not performing very well. I see them in training and I know these are more than options for me, and that’s really good. “
