The Merseysiders were quick off the mark last summer, signing £30million Sadio Mane, £25million Georginio Wijnaldum, Ragnar Klavan, Loris Karius and Alex Manninger all by July 20.
And the German is hoping that he can similarly get his business done early this time around as well.
Klopp is keen to have potential signings working with the rest of his first-team squad as soon as they reconvene after their summer break, with the Champions League qualifiers in mind.
However, while most of his recruitment work has already been done, he isn’t confident that he’ll have all business done by the term his squad return.
“I wish tomorrow [to have all signings completed] but unfortunately that’s not really likely,” he told his post-match press conference after the 3-0 friendly win over Sydney FC in Australia.
“The best scenario is that you have them for the start of pre-season but I’m not sure if it will happen this time.
“It’s different with all different players so we will see. That’s not a big problem because we all know if they are fit and healthy we have a really strong squad and that means we could start with this squad.
“But that doesn’t mean that I would prefer this, I would love to have them in as soon as possible.”
Klopp has made his first ‘signing’ of the summer, taking Christopher Rohrbeck from former club Mainz.
The 38-year-old will join the Reds this summer after 14 years of service with the Bundesliga outfit, where he served as head physio.
Mainz sporting director Rouven Schroder said: “Christopher Rohrbeck has worked for us in a reliable fashion on a high level for many years and was now presented with a chance to switch jobs.
“Even though for us this means losing one of our long-time employees, we wanted to grant Christopher and his family their wish to take on a fresh challenge in Liverpool.”
