Liverpool are looking to strengthen their squad with two more signings after three arrived at the youth academy.
Kostas Tsimikas has joined from Olympiacos this summer with Jurgen Klopp keen on bringing in competition.
Andy Robertson is first-choice at Anfield but the Greek will rival the ex-Hull star for the left-back position.
Three signings arrived on Thursday, who joined the academy.
They are Fabian Mrozek, Mateusz Musialowski and Melkamu Frauendorf, all 16, but Klopp has plans for two more.
The German wants to sign a centre-back and a right-winger or a midfielder – and there are three hotly touted targets already.
Celtic star Kristoffer Ajer is in Klopp's sights with the Reds taking a closer look at the Norweigan.
And Watford's Ismaila Sarr has been touted for a move to Merseyside.
Furthermore, Klopp has a plan for the Senegal international with his top trio already cemented in their spots.
And the one Liverpool fans are desperate for is Bayern Munich star Thiago Alcantara.
Though striking a deal for the Spain international looks difficult at the moment with the Reds not willing to meet Bayern's £27m price-tag.
Ian Doyle of the Liverpool Echo said: ""I'd expect two more signings, possibly three. Centre back for sure.
"Midfielder and wide forward for the other. There is a long way to go in this window"
However, Klopp failed to share confidence over any further arrivals at Anfield this summer.
The German said: “We brought already players in; Kostas, we brought in – not brought in, but they are coming closer and closer – the kids. They are coming closer. That looked really well in the pre-season.

“I don’t know what will happen, to be honest, but there’s a long time to go until October 6.
“It will be interesting to see what other teams are doing, but we are more or less in our situation and we will deal with our situation like we always did.
“I think the philosophy of this club is pretty clear, we always did that. We will see how much we can, or how much we want, to spend and all these kinds of things. So, nothing really to say about it.”
