Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says his players have until the end of the year to make an impression before wielding the axe at Anfield.
His current squad have been the focus since Klopp’s arrival last month and has always said he will give his men the chance to impress before he contemplates making changes.
But now with the January transfer window six weeks the German coach has admitted that there could be some transfer activity as he looks to shape his squad.
Klopp said: “We will have the possibility to change some things in January and in the summer but at this moment we have made no decisions because we don’t have to make them yet.
“The players know this. It is always the same that at one point in the season you have to make a decision about them.
“We are at a time when they can collect positive arguments and say: ‘okay, we want to work together’.
“I don’t need to say this to them, they know it. In this moment we have made no decisions so I have time to judge.
“To make a final judgement on them I need more time. I know about the business of course.
“We have time and we will see what is possible and what is not possible.
“We will see what’s necessary and what’s not necessary, that’s how we work.”
