Graeme Souness makes prediction about Liverpool transfers

Graeme Souness says it will take Jurgen Klopp as many as four transfer windows to get the Liverpool squad he wants

Graeme Souness believes that it will take Jurgen Klopp as many as four transfer windows for him to stamp his authority on his Liverpool squad.

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.”
