The Reds boss is almost certainly going to strengthen his squad in the summer transfer window, with a number of players already linked with a switch to Anfield.

Questioned on who he would sign for the club should money not be an issue, Klopp responded with admiration for a number of European players.

“Busquets is only 28, right?" Klopp said to Marca. "What a player! And it seems that he’s been playing 16 years in that position.

“Toni Kroos is an exceptional player, a genius. He’s so subtle with the ball."

Quizzed on his favourite Spanish players, the Liverpool boss replied: “In my time in Germany, I admired Thiago Alcantara, for example.

"And what about David Silva? There are others - Pedro is playing well. But yeah, it‘s a coincidence that I have not signed many Spaniards.

"Dortmund had no money to buy them. Gonzalo Castro was, but only half Spanish. A fantastic player, by the way.”
