John Aldridge offers thoughts on what Jurgen Klopp might do in January

Klopp Scouse Lesson

Aldridge thinks there may be some business done at Liverpool this winter.

Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge has said that he does think manager Jurgen Klopp will look to make signings this January, and said people should not read too much into claims the Reds boss does not want to make any additions this season.

Aldridge feels that Klopp will look to make one or two changes in personnel rather than going on a spending spree, despite a report from the Liverpool Echo suggesting that he has made no representations to the club's owners Fenway Sports Group about bringing in new faces.

In his Liverpool Echo column, Aldridge wrote: "I wouldn’t read too much into Jurgen Klopp saying he won’t be splashing the cash in the January transfer window.

"I doubt he’ll go on a spending spree but I do think he’ll try and bring in maybe one player.

"With Ings out for the season and Sturridge’s problems, it may be a front man. Equally, he might be looking to add a creative spark in midfield.

"But he’s said what he said I think to rally his players and let them know they have his firm backing and belief."

Klopp has repeatedly stated his desire to give the squad he inherited from Brendan Rodgers a chance to prove themselves so one doesn't think that he will be letting anyone leave unless they really push for a move in the winter, and there have been no signs of that reported so far.

The Reds' boss has also seemingly dismissed claims of buying a new forward in the summer when he was asked about his striker situation, saying he can work with those currently at his disposal in comments published by the Mirror

Some would say he needs a new goalkeeper, although it seems he is prepared to stick with Simon Mignolet for the time being. But one part of the team that could see reinforcements is out wide, as Jordon Ibe seems to be the only natural winger that has featured for the Reds so far this season.

It is going to be interesting to see if Klopp does indeed move for anyone.

He has been at Anfield for two months now so he will have some idea of what players can bring to the side, but he has probably not had a look at some players that he would have liked to because of injuries to certain individuals.

As a result Klopp may use the rest of the season to see if he can improve the players at his disposal enough for the side to be able to kick on next season.
