Published on: 07 May 2017

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists he'll do anything he can to land his top transfer targets.

The Reds are eyeing the likes of Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk and RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita to strengthen their squad next season, with Champions League football imperative to bring them to Anfield.

And Klopp said: “In Germany we say we have to eat a lot of frogs. We have to wait for different reasons, we have to take it. Bite the bullet, yes.

“The better the players, the more other clubs want them and we cannot go for players saying only that Liverpool is a wonderful city. There are a few other things you have to bring in.

“We are in good talks and we'll see what happens but it would help to qualify, that's for sure."
