One of Liverpool’s owners has poured cold water on the Anfield side going on a signing spree in the January transfer window.
Speaking to journalist Rafael Honigstein and as reported by the Liverpool Echo, Mike Gordon – the president of Liverpool’s ownership group FSG – has suggested that signing players in January is far more difficult than trying to do business in the summer transfer window.
Gordon said “I would regret it if we hadn’t tried to bring in additional players. But we clearly did try.
“The availability of players in the January window is continuing to diminish, it’s now an anomaly if you’re able to do something….we tried. And the same goes for all windows.
“We look for any advantage and opportunity to improve.”
Gordon’s words will be of no comfort to Liverpool fans, or manager Jurgen Klopp.
The Anfield faithful will be hoping that signings are made in January, particularly in defence as Liverpool have conceded 17 goals in only 11 league games.
Klopp will be wanting additions to his squad as Liverpool attempt to progress in the Champions League whist trying to secure a top four finish in the Premier League.
The Reds return to Premier League action this Saturday, with a game against Southampton at Anfield, as the battle for top four football continues.
