Jurgen Klopp has told Liverpool FC fans that he will “keep the door open” for potential signings in January, but says the Reds are only likely to make additions if they suffer a serious injury crisis.

The Merseyside outfit have established themselves as the team to beat in the Premier League this season and they are currently four points clear at the top of the table.

Liverpool FC sealed a 2-0 win over Wolves on Friday night to extend their lead at the top, and Manchester City’s surprise 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace kept the Reds four points ahead of their title rivals.

There is bound to be plenty of speculation linking Liverpool FC with a number of signings in the coming weeks as the January transfer window gives Klopp the chance to add to his squad and prepare his side for the second half of the campaign.

However, Klopp has now appeared to indicate that the Reds will only probably look to bring in some new players if they suffer injury problems in the coming weeks.

Speaking in an interview quoted by The Sun, Klopp said: “I’m very happy with what I’ve got but I’ve always said, you don’t know.

“I’ll keep the door open. If some things happen then we need to have a look.

“A monstrous number of games are coming up. It is really important that we can react.

“If something dramatically changes we will need to have a look, but if nothing happens then we will not do anything.”

Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action on Boxing Day when they host Newcastle United in the top flight.

The Reds will take on Manchester City at The Etihad on 3 January in what could prove a pivotal clash in the Premier League title race.
