Jurgen Klopp confirms talks are underway for huge Liverpool reshuffle in massive transfer boost for summer

, Jurgen Klopp confirms talks are underway for huge Liverpool reshuffle in massive transfer boost for summer

JURGEN KLOPP has confirmed Liverpool are in talks to appoint a new sporting director.

The news will come as a boost to the club’s transfer ambitions in the summer, with Klopp feeling they should be able to navigate the window more effectively as a result.

Jurgen Klopp has revealed Liverpool are in talks for a new director of football

On the talks, Klopp told reporters: “I am not involved in the ‘talks’ but maybe in the talks around, yes.

“I am not the person in the club who can give (a) real answer about where it stands. That’s in the hands of other people. What I heard is it’s all going in the right direction.”

Julian Ward, who is the current incumbent of the position, will be stepping down from the role at the end of the season.

Ward himself only took the role 12 months ago after Michael Edwards left following a 10-year stay at the club.

Klopp continued: “How many clubs are there out there without a sporting director now?

“Is there any club without a sporting director or a guy in the role of the sporting director? [Manchester] City, Arsenal, no. [Manchester] United, they have a sporting director?

“Pretty much everybody has a sporting director. That’s because it makes sense. With the decisions, how the manager is involved with decision-making, that is not a thing.

“But the process. If a manager has to do that, I don’t know how the guys did that in the past!

“Around that, talking to all the agents and all these kind of things. And constantly talking about a pound here and a pound there. You need people for that, there is no chance.

“And that’s why, yes, I’m happy with the structure. The guy or lady we get will be absolutely right. But nothing to say in the moment.”

Liverpool are set for a massive summer where it will be imperative for them to bring in the right players to return to fighting for the Premier League title, rather than scrapping away in a top-four chase.

And this is set to see the Reds prioritise midfielders despite pulling out of the race to sign £130million-rated Jude Bellingham.

This came as they reportedly chose to focus their resources across multiple targets rather than splashing it all on one player.
