Liverpool boss Klopp reveals surprise transfer window plans

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has shocked fans by claiming he will not be bringing in another striker in the coming window, the DailyStar reports.

The Reds have struggled heavily with injuries to his attacking options this term, with Danny Ings out for the season, Sturridge having suffered his fourth set-back, and Christian Benteke also having been sidelined during the campaign.

Despite the regular changes been forced on his line-up, Liverpool boss Klopp is denying that he is looking to bolster his forwards in January.

He said: “We have Christian Benteke, Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino,” he said.

“Of course, we also have [Danny] Ingsy but he’s not available at the moment. It’s a situation I can work with.

“If you take a new player, a striker, who can help you immediately, when the day comes and Daniel is back in the race and maybe better than before – more confident and fitter than before – then we will sit here and talk about all the problems we have with all of these players and how they didn’t play and so on.

“I am not like this, sorry!”

Liverpool had been linked with potential moves to sign Mauro Icardi from Inter Milan, as well as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Klopp’s former side Borussia Dortmund, with the Gabon international having been in exceptional goalscoring form in the Bundesliga this term.

The German has also been linked with a possible raid on his former club with captain Mats Hummels said to be unsettled at present.

  1. Everyone has an Achilles’s heel and Jurgen appears no exception – his seems to be Mignolet. I am afraid that yesterday’s showing will have been a delight to future visitors. They must realize that they simply need to play for corner after corner to get the Anfield result they want. I fervently hope that Klop’s statement on signings is simply a subterfuge and we will get a proper goalkeeper in January. We need one and that is more and more obvious as excuse after excuse is trotted out for shambolic appearances by Mignolet.

  2. I sincerely hope that Klopp will change his mind about not signing new players in January. We can do with Hummels in defense and one more as a backup. Somehow the manager will have to get Benteke hungrier for goals. He comes across as too lax when he should concentrate on scoring.

  3. We need a striker, defender & a central midfielder who’ll doing the running to get goals for our strikers.
