Jurgen Klopp demands Liverpool won't sell Naby Keita before the exchange window closes, regardless of reports recommending the Guinea midfielder is disrupted at Anfield. Keita is into the last a year of his Reds contract, and keeping in mind that the club actually desire to concur an expansion with the 27-year-old, there have been claims in Germany that the player has become baffled with everything going on.

Ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Manchester United on Monday night, Klopp insists that:

“Selling Naby now and not replacing him? No, that is not possible. “But it is not the plan. We are done. Players go and we don’t replace him? No. “Naby will not go but if he would, which he will not do, there would be a replacement.”

Do you think Liverpool make any signings before the transfer window closes?

LLiverpool's beginning to the new Premier League season has been a bad one, with two disappointing draws against Fulham and Crystal Palace, a red card for new marking Darwin Nunez and a big injury list which will deny Klopp the service of some of important players, like, Thiago Alcantara, Diogo Jota, Ibrahima Konate, Joel Matip and Curtis Jones at Old Trafford.Their battles, moderately talking, have reinforced calls for them to dunk into the exchange market, however Klopp has reliably dismissed that thought, demanding that he is content with what he has, and that the circumstance will ease before long.

He continued that:

“Yes [I am happy] when they are all fit, 100 percent. “Even then we always look to strengthen but we always said that it must be the right player, and if the right player is not available then we deal with what we have rather than sign the wrong player. “This situation did not change. Now we have more injuries and it would be cool to have another midfielder. “There is also the situation that I am not in charge of what we spend. That is always the same, and didn’t change. You could say that is why we are here in a good understanding and a bad understanding.”

He added:

“I always have to accept and always did. That is it. It makes no sense to worry about something you cannot change. That is a waste of energy, a waste of positivity. 
“I love this group and not because they are so good looking, no, because they are incredible characters and they showed it again on Monday. If the facts are the facts [then] accept them and go from there.”
