Liverpool will not have a busy transition window on the eve of the new Premier League season, and fitness again Alex Oxley-Chamberlain and teenager Ryan Bruster intend to compete for starting places, said manager Jurgen Klopp.
Midfielder Oxley-Chamberlain has only spent two games last season because of a serious knee injury when Liverpool ranked second in Manchester City in the league, but continued to win the Champions League, winning the Tottenham Hotspur finale.
Brewster has not yet made his competitive debut, but the 19-year-old boy reminded Klopp of his talent with a curly brace in a friendly victory of 6: 6 before a friendly victory at the Tranmer Rovers on Thursday.
"We have already brought them, only you do not understand it," Klof told reporters when he was asked about a potential signing.
"Brewster, Oxlade-Chamberlain did not play last year. All the young guys are today … they are all new players for us."
Liverpool signed 17-year-old defender Sepp van den Berg from the Dutch first division of PEC Zwolle last month, and Danny Ingi, Daniel Sturring and Alberto Moreno left the club.
"The transfer market is open until August 8 … we'll see what we do, but I do not think it will be the largest window of transmission of all time," added Clopp.
Klopp has reserved a special praise for Brewster after the match at Prenton Park, stating that the boy played an important role in the new campaign that starts with a home match against the advanced Norwich City on August 9.
"Rhian Brewster is the main striker … I am very happy. He plays an important role this year, but how important? It's up to him, and we'll see," added the German.
"He must play in different positions, because the center is in order, the wing is possible, and then we will see how we can build. There will be opportunities for him, I'm really sure."
