German manager Jürgen Klopp held a press conference at the AXA Training Centre on Friday afternoon, where he gave an update on Liverpool's injury and transfer status ahead of his side's Premier League matchday 4 clash with AFC Bournemouth at Anfield.

Klopp spoke about the status of out-of-favour players and the club's strategy ahead of the transfer window closing on 1 September. According to the Reds boss, this weekend none of the 10 players who were ruled out days ago will return, but Joel, Curtis, Thiago is not far away, and Diogo is getting closer, plus Caoimhin will be in training early next week as well.

For the Liverpool manager this is positive news, but no one will be ready for tomorrow. In the case of transfers, reporters asked him if there would be any last minute deals before the transfer window closes, to which he replied that he is not sure, because sometimes it is too expensive or not the right player for the squad, but for him the important thing is that he is the right one.

Naby Keita

Before he was asked, Klopp didn't mention Naby Keita during this list of possible returns next week, so he was asked if he was close to returning or if there was any new news, in the face of rumours that he was one foot out of the team, in the face of a niggle over his contract which runs out in 2023.

"Some players are not available, that's how it is. If we can do something or if we are going to do something, then we are 100% convinced about it. If we are not convinced, we don't do it. So that's the situation. Naby will not be ready for the weekend, of course not. We still have to see exactly how long it will take. It's a muscle and it's not 100 per cent clear, but he won't be for next week," Klopp said.
