LIVERPOOL will not be making any more signings until some non-homegrown players leave the club.

Jurgen Klopp has had his hands tied after bringing in defender Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig earlier this summer.

Jurgen Klopp is stuck due to Liverpool's odd transfer predicament

That acquisition, combined with the return of Takumi Minamino from his loan spell at Southampton, means The Reds have hit the capacity for non-homegrown players.

The restriction on non-homegrown players is set by both the Premier League and Uefa.

There are 17 players from overseas in the current squad, preventing the registration of any further additions.

And because he is homegrown, the impending sale of Harry Wilson to Fulham will not free up a spot in the squad for Klopp to fill.

However, Liverpool are reportedly actively looking to sell Xherdan Shaqiri, which would allow a new non-homegrown player to come into the squad.

Divock Origi is another player who could leave after spending much of his spell at Anfield on the fringes.

Inter Milan were said to have an interest in the striker earlier this year.

Saul Niguez is reportedly one target Liverpool would like to bring in

If one or both of those leave Liverpool could strengthen, with Saul Niguez being targeted as a possible replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum.

Franck Kessie is also amongst the candidates who could replace the now-PSG star.

And Liverpool have lined up a potential blockbuster move for Italy star Federico Chiesa, offering Juventus £77million for the winger.
