Jurgen Klopp has flatly admitted Liverpool made a serious mistake in January by not signing players and says it won’t happen again this summer…
The manager was speaking to a press-conference yesterday and was asked about plans for the end of the campaign, with the squad currently threadbare due to a mightily inconvenient injury-crisis which sees Adam Lallana, Sadio Mane and Jordan Henderson all sidelined.
In no uncertain terms, Klopp said ‘of course’ we’d be active in the window
Klopp asked about summer transfer plans: “We will show that we’ve learned from this year. Of course we will bring players in.”

Most Liverpool fans would suggest we need bolstering at centre-back, left-back, holding midfield, right-midfield and up top.
That’s five positions where we need experienced players capable of stepping into the squad and helping with a (potential) Champions League campaign.
Our starting XI, when everyone’s fit, is exceptional, but even without European football this season, we’ve seen that simply isn’t enough.
Klopp will have money to spend and we hope he’s ambitious in his targets. However, we saw last summer with the smart acquisitions of Mane, Gini Wijnaldum and Joel Matip that he knows what he’s doing in the transfer market.
