Jurgen Klopp: Set to make a move in January

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted that the club’s lack of goals could force him into the January transfer market.

The Reds have only scored 25 goals in 22 matches – with only Stoke and Crystal Palace scoring fewer in the top 12 of the Premier League this season.

Klopp’s options have also been limited with injuries to Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi and Danny Ings and the German has said he could make an addition to the attacking ranks this month.

Liverpool have been heavily linked with Shakhtar Donetsk attacking midfielder Alex Teixeira and are believed to have lodged a £24.5million bid for the 26-year-old after chief executive Ian Ayre flew to Florida for talks this week.

Klopp though has refused to commit himself on the propsect of Brazilian signing for the Anfield club.

“There’s nothing to say about this,” said Klopp at Friday’s press conference.

“We can talk about any player in the world if we had time for it.

“I think I always said if our situation changed then we would have to change.

“It’s not perfect time to buy but we have to watch the market. If we find a solution and a player who can help us then we’ll try.

“Nothing has changed in my opinion. If there’s a good player who can help us then we think about it.”
