Jürgen Klopp admits Liverpool will only do business before the close of the January transfer window on Monday if it ‘makes real sense’ for the club.

The manager was asked by reporters at Melwood on Friday afternoon about the possibility of there being additions to the Reds’ squad prior to the deadline.

Klopp responded: “As I’ve said, we are always busy, we are always working and we always check the possibilities. 

“That’s what we’ve done since I’ve been here. Now it’s close to the closing of the window, so if something happens, we will see. 

“But there is nothing to say at this moment. If we were to be close to something, everything I could say now would disturb this – and if not, it’s the same situation, so we have nothing to say. 

“You’ll have to wait, like I have to wait maybe. I have no problem with this, it is like it is. I am fine with the squad. Everybody can see the squad was never a problem, not for one second, it’s all about injuries and the number of games – that doesn’t fit too good. 

“That’s the reason why we’ve thought about a few things but only if it makes real sense for us.”
