Jurgen Klopp says he isn’t in a rush to make Liverpool signings ahead of the January transfer window.

The 48-year-old masterminded his first win as Reds manager after a 3-1 victory over defending Premier League champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

Klopp has been linked with a raid on his former club Borussia Dortmund since he took over the reins at Liverpool last month.

Germany internationals Marco Reus and Mats Hummels have been touted as potential targets, whilst Neven Subotic is another name being linked with Liverpool.

However, the Liverpool manager attempted to play down talk of the Reds entering the January transfer market despite the incessant speculation surrounding the Merseyside club.

“I can’t believe that England is so impatient! It is much more difficult. I have been here three weeks,” Klopp is quoted as saying by Daily Mail.

“Everyone tells me ‘you want to buy this player, this player, this player’.

“But development is to work with the players you have. It’s like if you have a problem with your wife, you don’t want to change every day!”

“That is the thing, you just work and work and get better. You don’t think about the summer of 2016. I don’t know what will be there.

“We have to try and work, and get closer and see what we can achieve.”

Klopp’s predecessor Brendan Rodgers spent almost £200m on new players over the past two summer transfer windows.
