Liverpool Boss Jurgenn Klopp says, “Current squad is enough for rest of the season.”
Jurgenn Klopp has ruled out any possibilities for Liverpool to make any new signings before the end of January. He came out and said that the current crop of players that he has shall be enough for the remainder of the season.
After letting go of Philip Coutinho to Barcelona for British record fee 142 million €, Liverpool’s attempt to sign a replacement in Thomas Lemar hit a hard rock as AS Monaco’s chairman spoke out saying that they will not let go of their star man at any cost in the mid-season.
After beating the league leaders Manchester City 4-3, it seems that Liverpool can still do well after the departure of their Brazilian star. Alex Oxlade Chamberlain’s notable performance in his return to the starting line-up in the win against Manchester City seems to have made positive impact on Klopp’s mind. With this performance Chamberlian could be in line to directly replace Coutinho in the Liverpool starting eleven.
James Pearce also hinted that Liverpool had agreed personal terms with Riyad Mahrez and a medical could be in line. However, it has been now cleared that Klopp is happy with his current players and he shall look for reinforcements in the summer transfer window only. With Virgil Van Dijk already signed for Liverpool and Naby Keita arriving in the next summer, the next season can be something to look forward to for the Reds fans.
Liverpool are in a strong position to secure their place in the Champions League next season. However, the added pressure of competing in the Champions League knockout stage this season shall be something Klopp’s side will have to cope with. Rotation will be essential to keep the players fresh and injury-free. Klopp believes that his squad has enough depth to perform well until the end of the season.
