Klopp: Liverpool won't sign any defensive reinforcement

Liverpool will not make any defensive reinforcement this window this according to manager Jurgen Klopp.

There was a thought that The Reds would be in the market for a central defender following the departure of Dejan Lovren to Zenit St. Petersburg but according to Klopp, the club was well covered in the position.

"I don't expect a lot, to be honest. You think you are well covered, we have three absolutely top, top, top centre-halves, young players in line, Fabinho in the backhand if you want and then all of a sudden three players are out for a few days and that is not nice.

"But you cannot solve that in the transfer market. That is just not possible. We will not even try if nothing more serious happens. I hope we don't have to try that.

"If the situation stays like it is at the moment then no there will be nothing. All the rest we are in quite a good place squad wise and what the outcome (on outgoings) will be I have no idea at the moment. We will see," Klopp said ahead of their Monday clash with Arsenal.

The club has suffered injuries in the position with Joel Matip and Joel Gomez all out a move that has forced the German to use Fabinho in the position.
