Klopp not thinking about January transfer window amid injury crisis

Jurgen Klopp is not thinking about the January transfer window despite Liverpool's injury crisis worsening. 

Liverpool have been hit with an injury crisis with the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez set to be on the sidelines for the remainder of the season. It got worse for the Reds after Jordan Henderson suffered a thigh injury while on international break together with Trent Alexander-Arnold. 

Despite Klopp being left with Joel Matip as the only senior center-back, the Germany is not thinking about bringing in new players during the January transfer window. He is also waiting for the return of the likes of Fabinho, Thiago Alcantara, and Rhys Williams. 

"If we can do something in January I have no idea. If we want to do something in January I have no idea. We’ll just have to see," he said. 

"That we look for solutions and the transfer market – that is clear – but in the moment we have the situation we have. I don’t want to compare situations but when I came to Dortmund in 2008 my two center-halves were 19 and turned 20 that winter and we played with them for that entire time. Mats Hummels and Neven Subotic."

"We have talent here. They are young – 18, 19, 23 – and we have more experienced players, so we will see. Everybody has a chance. They can smell the chance and they step up. They want to show they are ready and we will see.

"We have midfielders – not in the moment but hopefully in a couple of weeks – who can play the more defensive role as well. For the moment we are fine. I’m really confident it will work out with the boys and then hopefully we can convince the rest of the world as well."

The Reds will miss the services of Mohamed Salah after the Egyptian tested positive for coronavirus while on international duty.
