Jurgen Klopp said Liverpool are working “constantly” to try and bolster their squad before the end of the transfer window but he is unsure if he will be able to bring anyone in.
The Liverpool manager had initially intended to stick with his current squad but has admitted he would like another midfielder as injuries have hit them hard.

Antonio Conte believes the time to judge Tottenham will be during the upcoming busy period where the club will play once every three days.
Spurs have started the new Premier League season with seven points out of a possible nine but now embark on a two-and-a-half-month schedule where they will play 20 matches across domestic and European competitions.

Patrick Vieira accepts Crystal Palace will have to “suffer” to extend their impressive record against Premier League champions Manchester City on Saturday.
City have lost just two of their last 54 Premier League games played at 3pm on Saturdays, both times hosting Palace.
Despite that record, said the Eagles boss, his side still faces an uphill battle against Pep Guardiola’s men.
Palace have two wins and a draw from their last four visits to the Etihad Stadium
Newcastle United have signed Alexander Isak from Real Sociedad on a long-term deal, the Premier League club said on Friday, shattering their transfer record to recruit the Sweden striker.
The clubs did not disclose the fee but British media reported Newcastle paid around £59m to sign the 22-year-old.
The fee eclipses the £40m Newcastle paid for Bruno Guimaraes in January and Joelinton in 2019. Isak is Newcastle’s fourth major signing since the close season after Nick Pope, Matt Targett and Sven Botman.
The 22-year-old becomes the Magpies’ club record signing
Eddie Howe is hoping Alexander Isak will add “the X-factor” to his team after Newcastle smashed their club record transfer fee to land the Sweden international.
The 22-year-old Real Sociedad frontman completed a move understood to be worth around £58million on Friday afternoon when he put pen to paper on a long-term contract.
His fee comfortably beats the £40million the Magpies paid for Brazilian Joelinton during the summer of 2019 and takes the club’s spending in the two transfer windows since Amanda Staveley’s consortium took over to around £210m.
The 22-year-old has signed a long-term deal on Tyneside.
Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper says he would like to have signed even more players by now as the club’s summer recruitment drive looks set to continue in the final week of the transfer window.
Forest have brought in 16 players this summer and Cooper wants more in before next Thursday’s transfer deadline.
Everton defender Michael Keane is the latest name to be linked with a move, though Cooper would not address individual players at his press conference to preview the visit of Tottenham.
The newly-promoted club have already brought in 16 new players this summer.
Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks has reportedly agreed to join Serie A club Sampdoria on a season-long loan.
Fabrizio Romano says the deal will be done in the next few days after Winks changed his mind on a move abroad.
The 26-year-old had previously been keen to stay in the Premier League after being linked with a loan to Jose Mourinho’s Roma.
