Liverpool captain Virgil van Dijk has urged supporters to keep faith with the board as they seek to bolster the squad.
The club is set to see Sunday’s opponents Chelsea beat them to the signing of Moises Caicedo.
“The thing is, whether we need to sign a player for a particular position, yes or no, any top club at the moment would love to improve their squad,” the Dutchman told a select group of reporters ahead of Sunday’s game.
“Why wouldn’t we as players want to improve our squad either? We all want quality signings and that’s what we’ve done so far. So we trust the club. I definitely trust the club. They did quite good business over the last years, so why not now as well?
“If you follow social media or anything you get dizzy with the names. So I think everyone is saying names just to be the first one to say names nowadays. It’s speculation and they try to guess names to put fuel on the fire and stuff and that’s how the internet works.
“And you know, so what I said already before, we trust the club, we play for the club, and we trust the club to do the right thing for the club, and we’ll see what happens in the next couple of weeks still.
“If you watch social media, if you watch all the other stuff and you see us linked with almost every midfielder in the world or any other player and everyone is a sporting director nowadays on social media then you know you get dizzy, so just wait and see.
“We have professionals working on it. And like I said, I trust the club. And that’s the most important thing.”
