Jurgen Klopp has told Liverpool supporters that he’ll happily delve into the January transfer window should he feel the need, the Echo reports.
“The January transfer window is not the perfect one because you have no time to train,” The German, who of course joined outside the summer window, began.
“You pick a player, put him on the pitch and say, ‘Come on, show your best performance’. But if we need, we will do [transfers]. No problem.
“I don’t know what will happen in January, if we have more injuries it will be important, of course. But at this moment, there’s no decision.
“I think six weeks is not enough to judge [the players]. I know in this world we judge after one second sometimes. If you want to develop things you have to wait for steps, that’s normal.”
Already since Klopp has arrived, Liverpool have been linked with a plethora of players, some believable, some farcical.
While the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Ilkay Gundogan seem unfathomable just yet, there’s a number of interesting transfer links circling.
The most serious seem our interest in Alex Pato from Corinthians, (cited by Globoesporte) and German international Leroy Sane, (cited here in the Telegraph, among others.) We made a bid for Sane in the summer according to Schalke director Horst Heldt (via the Mail) and it seems though Klopp has given the go ahead for us to try again.
The point Klopp makes regarding our injury situation is of course an interesting one. If Jordan Henderson, Daniel Sturridge and Jon Flanagan can return and stay healthy, he’ll have three new players to work with already – knowing that Danny Ings and Joe Gomez will eventually return from the sidelines as well.
