Konate may need to sit out for longer than a month while Jota, who just this week signed a new contract, is still not fully trained.
Due to Konate's injury, Klopp will not yet permit Nat Phillips to leave; Fulham is interested in the £12 million-rated centre defence.
The manager of Liverpool, however, does not think that bringing in new players can provide the answer to his difficulties.
It's true that we have too many injuries, Klopp added. "However, right now, nothing has changed" (in terms of new signings).
Caoimhin (Kelleher) and Diogo were the first to be hurt, and one of them afterwards had another injury.
With Diogo, it was a little too soon; they will return in a few weeks, but they missed preseason, and that's not cool.
Ibou (Konate) was injured after a challenge during the match versus Strasbourg; the severity of his injury and recovery time is unknown at this time. Additionally, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Kostas (Tsimikas) is currently on the field and could be fit to train the following week. We detected it early with Curtis Jones, but we still need to exercise caution.
Despite claims to the contrary, Klopp said: "We cannot address an issue we have for four weeks with a transfer for a year." However, the window is still open, so we can observe. However, that is not the intended course of action.
