Klopp not expecting Liverpool signings in January


Jurgen Klopp is not expecting any arrivals at Liverpool before the end of the January transfer window.

The Premier League champions have continued to be linked with moves for defenders amid their form slump and with Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez sidelined through injury.

But, asked if he expected anything to change before the transfer window closes on February 1, Liverpool manager Klopp told a news conference: "Not really. No, not really.

"I would not say absolutely 100 per cent no, but I don't expect anything to happen to be honest."

Ahead of a trip to Tottenham on Friday (AEDT), Liverpool are winless in five Premier League games, sitting fifth in the table and seven points behind Manchester City.

Klopp said his side would continue pushing to turn their season around and he believes they are capable.

"We talk about things, that's clear. We don't ignore the things," he said.

"We have meetings, of course, and speak about the things just to make sure that we understand the situation in the right way – as a challenge, and a challenge is absolutely fine.

"As always with a challenge, it's all about how you approach it. We are in it. We are not happy about the situation, but we can sort it, however you would say it, and that's what we do.

"And we will fight. We will fight the situation, we will fight tomorrow night [against Tottenham], these kinds of things. That's what we'll do. We will see what we get for it."
