Liverpool will not get drawn into transfer battles for overpriced players: Juergen Klopp | Football News

Liverpool will be looking to sign new signings in the approaching season transfer window, but the premier league the club will not be drawn into bidding wars against players they deem too expensive, the manager Jurgen Klopp said.
Klopp has often spoken of the need for a rebuild at Anfield, but the club’s American owner John Henry said in March that Liverpool would not fall into the trap of spending beyond their means in pursuit of success.
British media reported last month that Liverpool had ended their pursuit of England international Jude Bellingham, who had been the club’s top transfer target ahead of an overhaul next season after a disappointing campaign.
Athletic have reported that Borussia Dortmund are demanding a £130m ($164.33m) transfer fee for the 19-year-old midfielder, who is now being linked with a move to Spanish heavyweights Real Madrid .
Asked what Liverpool’s approach would be if clubs demanded an inflated transfer fee for targets, Klopp told reporters: “We can’t buy the player then.”
“We’ll bring in players. I’m pretty sure we’ll bring in the players we want and those who will help us. I’m pretty confident about that,” added the German coach.
“Let me put it like this: you identify a position and you don’t have just one option on the position. That means they should all be good.
“You may have a favourite, but if the other club doesn’t want to sell or someone else pays the price, we can’t accept it, but we usually have the players we want. “

Liverpool, who are fifth in the Premier League table, host Brentford later on Saturday.
