The January 2020 winter transfer market has opened, but until now there has been no massive movement from European teams. Liverpool is one of them, even though they have been linked with a number of players.
Naturally, a lot of transfer gossip has linked some players to the Reds, given that the Premier League champions were unlucky in the first half of this season. The mainstay players took turns getting injured.
The most highlight is the defense, even all the mainstay players in the line have been absent in several matches due to injury, and there are still those who are sidelined like Van Dijk and Joel Matip.
No doubt, several names of reliable center-backs began to be linked with the Reds since last December. Moreover, the club seems to have shown an inconsistent performance since Van Dijk’s absence.
It’s understandable that Liverpool fans also hope so, but unfortunately coach Jurgen Klopp has given a strong signal that Liverpool will not buy players because of the club’s financial condition which is also affected by the pandemic.
“No, I can’t say for sure we won’t bring anyone in, that’s impossible because of the situation in the world,”
“We must not forget that the situation is difficult for everyone and also for the club. There may be, I don’t know, some clubs that have absolutely no funds. ” said Klopp on Liverpool’s official website.
Not wanting to close his eyes, Klopp also knows very well that his team currently needs new defender ammunition. The tactician will not hesitate to ask the management to recruit a new defender, but that is if the club’s financial condition is stable.
“So if the world is in a ‘normal’ place, let me put it this way, everything will be fine: we won the league, won the Champions League.”
“The club is in the best situation and then you have three senior center-backs plus Fabinho plus the kids, and the three senior center-backs are all injured – is that a situation where we would normally do something? Yes, of course, “he said.
