Liverpool boss Klopp reveals striker signing plans

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits they could buy a new striker in January.

The German says it will all depend on whether Rhian Brewster leaves on-loan next month.

Aston Villa and Swansea are reported to be interested in Brewster - but a loan move for the striker would leave a gap in Liverpool's squad.

And asked if he would sign more attacking cover in such an event, Klopp told the Liverpool Echo: "Yes, we have to see. We can't just give the boys [away] on loan because we have built this squad.

"We have three long-term injuries and four with Paul Glatzel, two of them were pre-season. Two came later with Joel [Matip] and Fabinho.

"That gives us a 16-player squad and I count the kids, but we cannot only give players on loan and think it is good for him, we always have to consider both situations, the boys' and ours.

"And in the end, we try to make the perfect solution. Sometimes it works out, others it does not."
