Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp doesn’t want to make any signings in the January transfer window despite being given enough funds to sign new players by club’s American owners.
According to Mirror, the German boss has not even talked about a meeting with his Fenway Sports Group chiefs to discuss about top priority targets.
Except an extraordinary buy, like his former Borussia Dortmund centre-half Neven Subotic, if available in January, Klopp has made it clear that he has full faith in his current batch of players.
The new Liverpool boss, who was in charge of Borussia Dortmund until last season, is a fan of Subotic’s abilities and, he is reportedly not satisfied with the defensive options he has in hand at Anfield.
In fact, Klopp has already hijacked Subotic once, bringing the centre-back to Dortmund with him from another German side Mainz in 2008.
However, He is ready to offer a new contract to under-fire goalkeeper Simon Mignolet before Christmas. Over the last few weeks rumours coming in that Liverpool will extend his current deal, which ends in 2018.
Meanwhile, the German boss was handed a swift return to his country, when the Europa League draw gifted Liverpool a round of 32 clash with Bavarian outfit Augsburg.
The German will have to wait for his dream return to Dortmund as an opposition manager, but he will be very much eager to face the Augsburg opponents. They beat his former Dortmund team 1-0 back in February and threw them at the bottom of the Bundesliga. The controversial defeat saw some Dortmund players climbing the fencing to apologise to their supporters pleading for patience. But Klopp will surely be looking for a happier outcome as he is manager of Liverpool now.
Jurgen Klopp will have to wait a further 24 hours to know just how serious the injury of Dejan Lovren is, as the medical staff decided to delay the scheduled scan on a knee injury to allow swelling to go down first. But Club doctors fear there could be ligament damage after the tough tackle by Craig Gardner, and if ligament in damaged, he would surely be ruled out for the Christmas period.
Earlier, Klopp also declared he will not go for any new striker also, despite Daniel Sturridge’s continuing injury nightmare. The English striker is yet again in the treatment room with a minor hamstring problem following his brief comeback from a knee injury a fortnight ago.
