The Reds have been linked with a host of players in recent days as Klopp considers bolstering his squad ahead of the close of the January transfer window on Monday evening.
Klopp’s side have failed to find consistent form in the Premier League since his appointment as Brendan Rodgers’ successor at Anfield back in October.
Souness believes that the German will be out to add to his squad in the forthcoming transfer windows but says that it may take some time for him to get the players he wants.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Souness said: “It will take at least three or four transfer windows just to improve things.
“Klopp has got a huge job on his hands, possibly bigger than he first thought when he took over.”
“But the truth is that you don’t get a job like Liverpool, a really top job, is things are going well and at the moment they are a long way off.”
Klopp watched his Liverpool side book their place in the League Cup final against Manchester City after beating Stoke on penalties at Anfield on Tuesday night.
Liverpool travel to Leicester in the Premier League on Tuesday night.
