Jurgen Klopp has insisted that the club want to bring in new recruits this month, but are finding it “difficult” to get deals over the line.
Liverpool are now 10 points adrift of leaders Chelsea following a 3-2 defeat to relegation battlers Swansea City at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp has claimed that Liverpool are keen to make new additions before the window closes next week, but has suggested that there will be little in the way of transfers.
“I understand it is absolutely normal for people ask whether we should have brought players in,” Klopp told reporters. “It is not that we don’t want to bring players in – we do. The situation is yes, on the one side it is pretty simple, but on the other hand it is pretty difficult.
“If the right decision is not possible in signing the right player, then you cannot make the wrong transfer. It is not as if there are 20 players out there who could make this team stronger, who are running around and are available. That is why I say we know the situation, we are prepared to move, but for the right player. We are not the only side who can decide the outcome of that though, eh? The selling club makes the decision too.”
