Deals Close? Klopp drops massive Liverpool transfer hint; confirms he's 'in talks' to sign some 'good players'

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo on Friday, Klopp confirmed that Liverpool are already 'in talks with players and agents', but added:

“Not a lot of decisions have been already made at this point [but] we are on the way. We have a really good squad, and a few more good players will make it even better. There's a good base.”

It looks like Klopp is planning to get his transfer business done early again this year, which can only be a good thing, especially with no international tournaments in the summer to interfere with pre-season preparations. In my view, Liverpool's transfer priorities are (or should be) as follows (in order of urgency):

* Centre-back (Experienced, top-class performer; tough and vocal; leadership ability)

* Defensive-midfielder (Proven quality; rarely injured; strong personality; leadership ability).

* Striker (Finished article; proven quality; rarely injured)

* Goalkeeper (Proven quality; strong, Schmeichel-esque personality; unafraid to order defenders around, bark instructions, and lead from the back)

* Left-back (Defensively solid; pace; not prone to rash challenges like Moreno)

* 2x Attacking players (capable of providing genuine width).

On the subject of signing wide players, Liverpool legend Steve McManaman told ESPN this week:

"I’d love Liverpool to buy one or two wingers who can take players on".

I'm sure many Reds fans feels the same.
