Klopp reveals January transfer thinking

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has stated that his side will look to bring in new players in the January transfer window if needs be, despite it not being an ideal time to add to his squad.

The former Borussia Dortmund trainer took over at Anfield following the dismissal of Brendan Rodgers and is charged with getting the Merseyside club back to their glory days.

The German coach has made a relatively positive start to life at Liverpool, with every chance that the Reds could push for a top-four spot this season.

Klopp has stated that he is still assessing the squad that he has inherited, but that there is a chance that he could add to his contingent when the market reopens in the new year.

“The January transfer window is not the perfect one because you have no time to train,” Klopp told Sky Sports.

“You pick a player, put him on the pitch and say, ‘Come on, show your best performance’. But if we need, we will do [transfers]. No problem.

“I don’t know what will happen in January, if we have more injuries it will be important, of course. But at this moment, there’s no decision.”

Liverpool are set to be tested later today as they travel to face league leaders Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, which will be a challenge to see just how far the side have progressed under Klopp.
