Sherwood insists it would be ‘dangerous’ for Liverpool to buy in January

Former Spurs and Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood has said it would be dangerous for Liverpool to buy any new players in January.

Tactics Tim feels that it would be an unnecessary risk to the dynamics in the dressing room for Jurgen Klopp to add any new personnel during the transfer window.

“It’s really dangerous for people to think they need to add extra players. You can change the whole dynamic of your dressing room by doing that. They are in this position and I wouldn’t sign another player,” Sherwood told Sky Sports The Debate.

“Newcastle did it with Faustino Asprilla [in 1996] and it was a disaster. We know what a good player he was, he almost changed the dynamics of how they played, but it didn’t work out. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

“At the moment, I think the squad is strong enough, if they cope with injuries, to compete until the end.”

Klopp’s plans for the January transfer window are unclear but he has not ruled out the possibility of Liverpool adding to their ranks.

With recent injuries to Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Trent Alexander-Arnold, along with the possible exit of Alberto Moreno, The Reds might just have to recruit in order to cover any other possible injuries in defence.
