Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that the club is ‘always’ ready to spend as the January transfer window approaches
This season, the Reds have been plagued by injuries, with players such as Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota missing time.
The January transfer window will provide them the opportunity to strengthen for the remainder of the season, with Liverpool already stating that they are ‘working on’ resolving their concerns.
Speaking in his press conference on Friday, Klopp said: “I’m not against investing but we will see what the future holds, nobody knows at the moment. I’m still optimistic about the future.
“We have to deal with the present, and that’s what we’re doing.
“January in our scenario is a window from a sports side we are always prepared, it’s always apparent what type of ideas we have or how the necessity is from our point of view.
“The remainder is not entirely in our hands, and we always work with what we have, and that will not change.”
Liverpool is one of three clubs connected with a deal for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.
While a January move is improbable, the club could be ready to sign the 19-year-old next summer, with Real Madrid and Manchester City also keen.
Bellingham is also expected to inform Dortmund of his desire to leave the club.
Many of their current midfield choices are either approaching 30 or are older, so a younger acquisition might be beneficial in the long run.
Liverpool returned to action following the World Cup with a 3-2 loss to City in the Carabao Cup on Thursday night.
On Boxing Day, they travel to Aston Villa, where they are currently sixth and seven points off the Premier League top four.
