LONDON, October 12- New Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has allayed fears he will move to sign several players from former club Borussia Dortmund.

The enigmatic German was announced as the new Reds manager at the end of last week, sparking rumours of potential transfer moves for Marco Reus and Ilkay Gundogan amongst others.

However, Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke dismissed suggestions over the weekend Klopp would approach players without the club’s consent.

Klopp has now too dismissed speculation he could raid his former club, claiming he needs time to assess the players already at Liverpool.

“I have no intention whatsoever to lure Dortmund’s stars to Liverpool,” Klopp told German publication Bild. “I am not interested in how much money I will be allowed to spend in January.

“It is only October and I don’t even know how many games there are left until the winter.

“But we clearly have plenty of games left and we will be taking a look at our own players first.”
