Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has no plans to enter the January transfer window, but could swoop if an outstanding buy becomes available.
This has been reported by the Mirror, who claim that the Reds chief is reluctant to add to his squad and still hasn't requested a meeting with the club's hierarchy about potential targets.
The report goes on to claim, however, that the charismatic coach could yet act next month if an outstanding player becomes available. The Mirror claim that Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic would fit the bill, but it's far from certain as to whether he'd be interested in being reunited with his former boss on English soil.

Subotic has endured a tricky time under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel this season. In fact, the defender has only featured in two Bundesliga games for the German side, so he may well be considering his options ahead of the January window.
But Liverpool fans won't be getting their hopes up at this stage. It appears that signings aren't on the forefront of Klopp's mind right now, so the current crop of stars at Anfield may well be handed until the end of the season to make an impression on their new boss.
In truth, it's difficult to really assess Klopp's start as Liverpool manager. The German coach has most definitely lifted the spirits on Merseyside, but he will be well aware that his job has only just begun.
There have already been some wonderful results for Klopp; away victories at Manchester City, Chelsea and Southampton standout, of course, but he's yet to secure the winning formula at Anfield.
That may well come in time, but he certainly won't be resting on his laurels in pursuit of success. A top four finish remains in reach for Liverpool, who must show signs of consistency over the coming weeks and months.
