Reminded boys about Istanbul win: Liverpool coach Klopp

After being just steps away from bringing Alex Teixeira to Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp has now ruled out any transfer activity from Liverpool this transfer window.

The Brazilian attacking midfielder has been chased by Klopp and the club are believed to have had bids of £24.6million and £28million for the player rejected after chief executive Ian Ayre travelled to Florida to open talks with the Ukrainian side two weeks ago.

However, with the Shakhtar manager quoting a £53m release clause, Liverpool have now withdrawn from the chase, Klopp confirmed.

In the press conference on the eve of the game against Leicester, with just hours to go for the window to close, Klopp said, “I’m not sure what’s better for your job. So I can say maybe something happens or I can say the truth,”

“I don’t think something will happen in terms of incomings.

“No, you can finish work for the day.

“The outgoing side I’m not 100 percent sure.”

Premier League club Chelsea were also understood to be tracking the player but the asking price is too high for any team in this transfer window and the 26 goals superstar is set to stay in Ukraine for the rest of the season.

Dennis Cheryshev was also linked with the Merseyside club but Klopp’s statement will now see no additions to Liverpool’s current squad except the loan signing of QPR defender Steven Caulker.
