A look at the Premier League shows that Liverpool are not alone with transfers this winter. The Reds have a hard time, however.
It doesn’t look like Liverpool will sign anyone this month. That is certainly the impression that Jürgen Klopp makes.
“We have to improve football in key areas with this squad – it’s my job not to sit here and be disappointed or frustrated with some decisions,” he said, according to the Independent.
“I’m not. Of course we know what we would do in an ideal world, but the world is not ideal and not just for us. We have to deal with the situation and that is exactly what we do.”
Klopp talks about such things because the need to recruit is pretty obvious. After all, both first-choice defenders are injured in Liverpool.

Indeed, injuries across the squad seem to be finally taking their toll. The Reds have won five Premier League games and haven’t scored in four.
Unfortunately, Liverpool cannot or will not justify signing. But you are certainly not alone in this.
Take a look at the Premier League and you will see that virtually no one justifies transfers. The only big deal that had a transfer fee high enough to be disclosed was Amad Diallo of Manchester United.
And this deal was agreed in the previous window.
It is proving to be a very, very difficult market. However, Liverpool can feel particularly frustrated.
For one, their needs are different from everyone else. Because we’re making it clear – everyone in the league wants to make a big transfer.
Everyone can improve and there is certainly no perfect team in the Premier League right now.

Only Liverpool’s problems are entirely due to injuries. It’s unfair – massive – but it doesn’t change the bottom line of wanting new players.
If the deals were there, someone would do them. It just doesn’t seem feasible as no one is spending money trying to improve.
Liverpool are just bitterly unhappy that such a transfer window occurs exactly when players have to be signed.
