Jan Molby says Klopp should look at signing Bundesliga players in January

Jürgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp is likely to raid the Bundesliga for transfers.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Jan Molby claimed that he would be pleased to see Jurgen Klopp sign players from the Bundesliga, as he already knows the league well enough to remove much of the risk of transfers.

Molby said: “For me there’s nothing wrong if he wants to go back to Germany, Jurgen should work in the market he knows best. There’s always a risk in signing any player but it always gives you a better feeling when you go back to something or someone you know.”

The Liverpool squad needs some major improvement if they are to fulfil their aim of finishing in the top four, and Klopp has surely already identified the positions in his team which need strengthening.

The defence is poor, and with current injury troubles a new striker would likely be a useful addition, and Molby has admitted that looking in the German market would be a wise move.

Rather than signing a player who has never been truly seen by Klopp before, if he searches the Bundesliga for a signing, the head coach will know as much as he can about any arrival.

Liverpool have suffered in the transfer markets in recent seasons, and the Merseyside club could do well to have a solid January window, with every player brought in having an impact at first-team level.

To reduce the risk of this not happening, Klopp should look in the Bundesliga for signings, and it would come as no surprise to see him bringing in three or four players from his homeland in January.
