Jamie Carragher: The signings Liverpool could make in January
Jamie Carragher discusses the forthcoming January transfer window and what it could bring for Liverpool
Jamie Carragher admits that it will be difficult for Jurgen Klopp to bring in quality players during the January transfer window.
The Reds have been linked with a host of players in recent weeks as the media speculation intensifies in the build-up to the winter window.
Former Liverpool defender Carragher feels that new manager Klopp will have to make “big changes” to his squad in the coming months.
However, the Sky Sports pundit feels that the January transfer window may not be the best time to bring in the players that he is looking for.
Carragher told the London Evening Standard: “Eventually, he will make big changes but I think in January it’s always difficult to make those kinds of changes.
“Now and again you see signings coming in January who make a big difference – Luis Suarez was huge for Liverpool.
“Daniel Agger came in January too and he did really well, but it’s not normally a time when you get the best players on offer.
“I imagine the changes he [Klopp] will look to make and want to implement will come more in the summer.
“At present the team and the squad isn’t quite good enough to be where everyone wants Liverpool to be and that’s the whole point why you bring a new manager in.”
Liverpool are looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League after their 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace earlier this month.
The Reds, who are currently in 10th place in the table and nine points behind the leaders, travel to Manchester City in the top flight on Saturday evening.
