Potential exits from Anfield before Thursday's transfer deadline could include Danny Ings, Simon Mignolet, Marko Grujic and Divock Origi, who have all been linked with moves away from the Merseyside club.

"Joel, we'll have to see".

"He looks cool and calm on the ball and that's what Klopp wants from his goalkeeper, but they were areas that had to be rectified and it looks like majority have been".

"We will see what happens".

And Klopp added: "I was not surprised to be honest but as a human being I was hoping for it and I loved it. I don't update each second".

Liverpool complete their pre-season preparations with a 3-1 win over Torino at Anfield, where Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge were among the scorers.

"Hopefully he will go on to be a great goalkeeper and be remembered for that but Liverpool had to make a change because I think there would be no belief in Liverpool actually, never mind winning a league but challenging for the league with the two goalkeepers they had".


Jurgen Klopp's men begin their Premier League campaign against West Ham on Sunday.

Klopp's side have suggested as much across a strong pre-season, having beaten Manchester United, City, Napoli and Torino in their four most recent friendlies with some eye-catching displays, scoring a combined 14 goals.

Klopp has not ruled out captain Jordan Henderson featuring on Sunday despite only returning to training at the weekend. In his first session he looked like he trained the whole three weeks completely, ' said the Reds boss.

"Is it possible being different in a really hard world?"

There was also another promising display from 21-year-old Nathaniel Phillips, who played nearly the full 90 minutes at centre-back, and a nice moment midway through the second half when Loris Karius, whose errors contributed to Liverpool's defeat in last season's Champions League final, replaced Alisson to huge cheers from the home crowd.

"The mood in the club at the moment is really good and we want to build on that, we want to come even closer".
