Liverpool could yet make moves in the summer transfer window - and indeed have around 10 weeks in order to bring in additions, by which time the new season will be well underway - but big-money signings appear unlikely.

That might not stop links to the likes of Bayern Munich’s Thiago Alcantara from appearing in gossip columns, but the Premier League champions will not care.

The desire to see a signing come through the door at Melwood - or Liverpool’s new training ground in Kirkby, as will soon be the case - comes back to one thing.

Fans want to see investment in order to make sure that the success of the past two seasons is built on - that Liverpool do not stand still, or even regress.

The club, though, will not take risks by spending money that they do not have, and have shown in the past that even when the finances are there, it has to be a very specific player for them to make a commitment.

But not bringing in a new face to the squad does not necessarily mean that Liverpool will not improve further next season.

On the Liverpool.com podcast, Dan Morgan said: "The current squad have a taste for trophies, they really do - and that often gets overlooked. When you are a great team, there is a semblance that you just have to win, all of the time.

"They really enjoy a moment when they win a trophy and it is addictive - what greater let-off is there than celebrating with your mates who you have gone through the trenches with for the last nine months?

"When you see how they reacted to the Champions League and Premier League wins, it shows that they are all [ready to kick on again].

"They miss Anfield being full but you could see they were just happy to be around each other [when the Premier League trophy was being presented] and that reassures me that if Liverpool don’t sign a player, they are going to be there again.

"They push each other and people just think that it’s down to transfers - it isn’t. This is a team that pushes each other to their absolute limits and it will do so again next season."

Added to the squad will be the likes of Curtis Jones and Neco Williams, who will no doubt get more minutes next season.

Other more established stars like Virgil van Dijk and Jordan Henderson, stand-out performers this season, will have plenty left to prove.

A signing or two might yet arrive but if they don’t, Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp will not be panicking.
