Not Making Champions League Wouldn't Damage Liverpool Transfer Plans - Jurgen Klopp

"But of course if we are in the Champions League then it would have an influence".

"If you're not in the Champions League, you will get players that will say: 'I love Liverpool but I'm not going there because they're not in the Champions League".

At Christmas the Reds were sitting in second spot in the Premier League table and were competing in two Cups but, in the space of a few weeks, they find themselves out of the running for any silverware this season.

"We don't have to talk about the Champions League now because we are not even qualified". We would need a deeper squad and you have to be prepared for that.

Klopp said: 'Arsenal is coming and we all know how good they are, so it's hard yes, but it's possible to win and that's what I always say - as long as it's possible, let's try to do it, let's really try to do it.

"If they finish fifth, sixth, seventh or even eighth like they did a year ago, it will be a bit of a disaster because they went out of the two cup competitions in January and they went out rather meekly". We didn't qualify this season.

"This is a long-term project but that doesn't mean we are not ambitious in this season". We want to be part of it. We had some wonderful games in that competition. "To get there we have to win a few games". Nothing has been decided until now.

"It's probably easier to go through to the next round from the group stage of the Champions League than it is to qualify in the first place in England".

"I am sure that England has to be the most hard league in order to qualify for the Champions League, 100%". We know it. It's all good. Our position is absolutely okay.

Our form last month ruined our chances of league or cup glory, but we performed sensationally against Spurs last time out which will hopefully put us on track for a top four finish.
