Jurgen Klopp press conference

Klopp admits he is ‘open’ to January signings

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has refused to rule out signing players during the January transfer market.

The Reds were the Premier League’s biggest spenders during the summer window, bringing in Alisson, Fabinho, Naby Kieta and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Liverpool’s summer outlay has clearly paid off with the Anfield outfit sitting atop the Premier League table heading into the busy festive period.

“I’m very happy with what I’ve got but I’ve always said, you don’t know,” Klopp told Sky Sports.

“I’ll keep the door open.

“If some things happen, then we need to have a look. A monstrous number of games are coming up. It is really important that we can react.

“If something dramatically changes, we will need to have a look but if nothing happens, then we will not do anything.”

“We don’t have that many options anymore because we have two injured centre-halves, so that immediately limits everything.

“We are not that versatile. Yes, [James] Milner can play five or six different positions, that is not a problem for him, but there are not a lot of players who can play that many positions.

“But the situation is OK.”

Liverpool face Newcastle at Anfield on Boxing Day.
