Liverpool’s lack of transfers not a problem, says Reds legend
Phil Thompson runs the rule on Liverpool's lack of transfer activity
Phil Thompson says Liverpool’s lack of activity in the January transfer window will not have a negative impact on their season.
The Reds are yet to sign a player in the current window and manager Brendan Rodgers insisted that they would be very quiet on deadline day.
But after a difficult start to the season following a summer spending spree, former Liverpool defender Thompson says the squad is finally coming together, adding that he feels there is no need for further additions or departures.
“Liverpool have looked at it and thought that the players they’ve bought in the summer are coming to fruition,” Thompson told Sky Sports.
“They’re getting a lot better performances from them. They’ve settled better.
“The club feel like they don’t need to force anyone out, they don’t need to bring anyone in.”
The Reds are just four points off the top four after a seven-match unbeaten run, winning their last three games without conceding a goal.
Liverpool have also been boosted by the return of star striker Daniel Sturridge after a five-month injury spell.
The 25-year-old’s fitness is still a concern after suffering from thigh and calf problems, and it has been difficult for the club to replace him.
But while the Reds lack a bit of depth up front, Thompson feels content with the current squad.
“I don’t think there are many Liverpool fans thinking why aren’t we doing anything,” Thompson added.
“We’d all like a striker in. I would’ve like an experienced striker to come in, but I’m quite happy at the moment.”
