Jurgen Klopp told reporters in the post-Burnley press conference that the decision to bring in any signings during the January transfer window is not down to him.
Following the long-term injuries sustained by Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, the period beyond the New Year has been rife with speculation about the club’s transfer plans, with a score of defenders linked with an Anfield move.
It is becoming increasingly apparent, however, that no new faces will be arriving at Liverpool – a potential scenario that doesn’t seem to sit well with Klopp, based off of his frustrated response to a question over transfers.
We’d have to agree that, while a new signing couldn’t replicate Van Dijk’s presence at the back, it would arguably alleviate a great deal of our problems by allowing key players to return to midfield.
