Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he is not a huge fan of the January transfer window but has his eyes set on any possible deal that may be available. The Reds are going through a bad patch, having failed to win any of their last four games in all competitions, losing two and drawing the rest.
Injuries to Daniel Sturridge and Danny Ings have seriously depleted their attack, with Christian Benteke having also fallen out of favour with Klopp. The big money signing from Aston Villa has already been linked with a move out of the club, with the player ostensibly not fitting into Klopp's philosophy.
There has been talk of Klopp being given the money to pursue players in the upcoming transfer window, but the former Borussia Dortmund manager insists that they will have to shell out an insane amount of money to get them midway through the season, which makes it difficult for them to negotiate a deal. However, the spate of injuries in defence may force his hand, with the Reds currently without four defenders following the unavailability of Martin Skrtel, who went off against Watford with a hamstring problem.
"There's nothing to tell about [transfers]," he told Liverpool's official website. "It's how I've said all the time, we try to be prepared but this window in January is not the easiest one. There are big prices in the market and things like this.
"I'm not the biggest friend of the January transfer window but, like I always said, if we have to react we will react. I'm not long enough here... maybe a player will leave, I don't know. If he comes to me and says, 'it's not a situation I want', then maybe we have to react.
"Or another injury. We have a lot of games in the transfer window so that's what I always try to say. We are not planning only to get more players and more players and more players. That's not how I think we should work. But if we have to react, we will react."
