Whilst we’re always keen to see Liverpool Football Club being active in the transfer market, signings only become feasible if they’re beneficial on a long-term basis.
The January transfer window is often seen as a window in which clubs panic buy or end up paying over the odds for individuals they could have gotten cheaper in the summer transfer window.
Most January transfer window activity. I believe, sees clubs involved in a relegation battle looking for inspiration to avoid the drop and appeasing the supporters who have endured a disappointing season so far.
With Liverpool top of the Premier League table, that particular point, thankfully, isn’t applicable.
But, with Liverpool suffering something of a crisis when it comes to injuries, a case could, supposedly, be made out for Jurgen Klopp to look to bring in some cover.
However, according to the local media, the Liverpool Echo, our boss isn’t ready to do any such thing, hinting that the club will not be involved in bringing in any signings this month.
Now whether Jurgen is taking a calculated risk or not remains to be seen.
Liverpool have a four-point gap at the top of the Premier League table, ahead of Manchester City, but as we’ve found out in previous seasons, that gap can soon disappear, courtesy of a couple of poor results.
But, then again, you have to applaud Jurgen for having the belief to stick with those he currently has in the squad instead of bringing in something that could be labelled a panic buy.
Only time will tell as to whether it is the correct course of action.
