Pundit issues Liverpool January signings claim after source's takeover update
Alan Hutton has insisted Liverpool owners can avoid problems with Jurgen Klopp by giving him enough money for the January and summer windows.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Tottenham and Aston Villa right-back said Klopp will be happy to stay even if the team is acquired by new owners as long as he is made aware of the transfer plans.
Fenway Sports Group has put Liverpool up for sale, but, as relayed by Sky Sports (8 November), the group insisted that while it receives frequent “expressions of interest” from potential investors, it will only accept new shareholders if it is in the best interest of the club.
An industry source has told Football Insider today that the Boston-based owners are only willing to entertain full sale offers of at least £3billion.
However, the chance of new owners being in place for the start of the January transfer window are seen as very slim at this stage.
Hutton insisted as long as Klopp is kept in the loop with new owners, he will be happy to stay at the club.

“I think he would probably want to know the plan moving forward,” he told Football Insider.
“What will be the long term goal of the people who are coming in? He has obviously had a good relationship at this moment in time with the owners for players and recruitment.
“I think he would want to know that moving forward. If that marries up with his goals then I am sure it will be fine. I think it all boils down to whether he gets the money he needs to spend to improve the squad.
“If the answer is ‘yes’ I do not see why there would be a problem.”
