Alan Hutton has claimed Liverpool will “definitely” re-enter the transfer market if they can find someone better than their “outstanding” current options.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Tottenham and Aston Villa defender said squad numbers “don’t matter” as the Reds are looking to add quality.
As quoted by the Mirror (26 August), Jurgen Klopp said his side are “working on things” in terms of transfers.

The Anfield club secured their first win of the season with a 9-0 victory over Bournemouth on Saturday (27 August).
The Merseyside club have been missing a number of key players due to injury.
Thiago Alcantara, Curtis Jones and Naby Keita are several of the players who were absent for the victory over the Cherries.
Hutton said Klopp will be looking at potential additions.
“Defensively they’ve not really been at it,” he told Football Insider.
“[Virgil] Van Dijk hasn’t started the season the best, they’ve been chopping and changing his partner. Is [Joe] Gomez up to speed? I know he’s not played a lot so it’s a bit harsh for me to really be critical of him. We’ve seen Trent Alexander-Arnold get exposed on numerous occasions this season.
“That happens, you have dips in form. He’s one of many outstanding players at the club and he’s proved that to everybody over the last few years.
“If there’s somebody that can come in and make that team better, I think he’ll definitely look at it. It’s not about the numbers it’s about the quality, they’re one of the best teams in the league, they don’t need numbers they need people that are going to make them better.“
