Danny Mills has tipped Liverpool to make a signing in January even though they threaten to run away with the Premier League title.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-England international does not expect Jurgen Klopp to recruit a senior star unless one of his fabled front three get injured.
But Mills would not be surprised if Liverpool sign a rising star who is capable of slotting into their team in two or three years’ time.
Klopp, sporting director Michael Edwards and the club’s recruitment team have overseen a string of outstanding signings in recent years that have propelled the club to the Champions League crown and put them well on course to end their three-decade title search.
Asked by Football Insider if Liverpool will make any signings in January, Mills replied: “They’ve got a settled side and enough strength in depth. Maybe if injury hits one of the front three, but to bring in someone who can slot in and play Champions League football, will be very expensive.
“Over the course of Klopp’s reign, they’ve got their recruitment spot on.
“So I don’t see anyone being brought in to make an instant impact in January, [apart from] a player to come in who will be in first team in two or three years time. But that’s it.”
Liverpool are eight points clear at the top of the Premier League after a remarkable start to the season.
Klopp’s side have followed up their outstanding 2018-19 campaign by winning 15 of their first 16 league matches and taking 46 points out of a possible 48.
