Jurgen Klopp has revealed he is open to bringing in further reinforcements during this January transfer window.

The Liverpool manager has already brought in centre-back Steven Caulker on loan, along with 19-year-old Marko Grujic, who has been loaned back to Red Star Belgrade until the end of the season and seems open to further additions.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of Saturday's trip to face Norwich City, Klopp hinted that Liverpool may be involved between now and the end of the window on February 1.

He told reporters: “if you are under pressure people want prices which you think are crazy. It’s not perfect time to buy but we have to watch the market. If we find a solution and a player who can help us then we’ll try.

“I think I always said if our situation changed then we would have to change. If there’s a good player who can help us then we think about it.”

Who have they been linked with?

Shakhtar Donetsk forward Alex Teixeira has been rumoured to be on the verge of completing a move to Anfield. 

The club have allegedly made a £24.5 million bid for the Brazilian forward, with his pace, strength, trickery and goalscoring record all making him a highly promising prospect. 

When asked about the latest news concerning the 26-year-old, Klopp was typically amusing yet intentionally evasive: “No. Nothing to say about this. I could say a lot about a lot of players.”

With Daniel Sturridge continually absent through injury and summer signing Christian Benteke struggling for consistency, Liverpool have struggled for goals all season - they have scored just 25 in 22 league games. 

Having scored 26 goals in 25 games for Shakhtar this season, Teixeira would be a hugely exciting transfer for the red half of Liverpool and certainly more so than Southampton striker Shane Long - the Irishman was linked with a £8m move earlier this week

Team news

Liverpool face Norwich in Saturday's early kick-off with midfielder Adam Lallana doubtful due to a muscular injury whilst Klopp revealed that Sturridge will be out for another ten days.
