Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been given the go-ahead to move forward with his summer transfer plans, with the club set to eclipse their previous spending totals.

However, according to The Sunday World, Klopp's budget for signings is partially dependent on Liverpool qualifying for the Champions League, with his side needing a win at home to relegated Middlesbrough this afternoon to confirm their place in the final playoff stage.

According to the paper, Klopp is to be given a £100m war chest by the club's owners, while there will also be money raised through the likely sale of Mamadou Sakho and Daniel Sturridge.

Liverpool have been linked with a host of players in recent weeks, with Klopp set to step up his pursuit of Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon, RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner and Southampton centre back Virgil van Dijk.

Liverpool occupy fourth spot in the Premier League table entering the final day, and need to match Arsenal's result to ensure Arsene Wenger's men don't overtake them in the Champions League qualification race.
