Liverpool boss rules out striker move amid £35m Inter links

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is not planning to move for a striker during next month’s transfer window, report the Daily Star.

The Reds have been linked to a raft of forwards over recent months, including the likes of Inter Milan captain Mauro Icardi and Bayer Leverkusen star Stefan Kiessling.

However, the 46-year old head coach has poured cold water over suggestions he is after another marksman in order to boost the ranks at Liverpool.

They already boast the likes of Divock Origi and £32m summer signing Christian Benteke as forward options.

England international forwards Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge are also options when available, while £16m striker Mario Balotelli is due to return from AC Milan at the end of the season.

Despite Sturridge’s injury issues, the 26-year old is not expected to miss out too much longer after his hamstring issue, though Ings is a long term casualty.

‘We have Christian Benteke, Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino’, replied the former Borussia Dortmund manager when asked about his New Year shopping plans.

‘It’s a situation I can work with.’
