Klopp will instead look to promote from within and he is confident the current champions won’t get lazy now they’re on top.
The Kop boss insists the current squad will stick together and doesn’t need huge investment.
Liverpool look set for a quiet summer in the transfer market as Jurgen Klopp is not desperate to make big changes to his squad following their Premier League title triumph
“If you are a football supporter, you want a backup for him and him, even if you are completely happy with everyone, you want backups.
Jurgen Klopp insists it won’t be a big summer of spending at Liverpool to boost their first Premier League title defence.
“We don’t have a first XI, I say we have a first 16 or 17, they can all play to the same level. But we have to use this, 100 per cent.
He said: “It is not a squad you have to change now and say ‘OK, we need this position and this position’.
“We cannot spend millions and millions and millions because we want to or we think it is nice to do. We never wanted that.
“And what we want to create are our transfers internally.
“We want to strengthen this squad and this squad is strong. The problem with a strong squad is how do you improve a strong squad on the transfer market?
“It works with money, obviously, that is possible. But it never works only with money. You have to be creative and we try to be creative. We try to find solutions internally.
“And there is still a lot to come. We have three or four players who can make big, big steps. All players can make steps and that is the pressure we make as well, internally.”
Klopp doesn’t know what the long-term ramifications from the coronavirus crisis will have on football spending but accepts “it’s just not likely that it will be the most busy summer in the world.”
The Kop boss is “very confident” none of his big names will be leaving and is in no doubt about their hunger to retain the title and win more trophies.
“People will be afraid that these boys will get lazy,” added Klopp.
Liverpool will be hoping the likes of Curtis Jones, Neco Williams, Rhian Brewster, Harvey Elliott and more can make progress.
