Jurgen Klopp was happy with his Liverpool squad and had no plans to add players in the transfer market this January.

Then seemingly everyone got hurt.

Klopp has admitted that the club has to rethink its plans for January after Dejan Lovren, Philippe Coutinho and Kolo Toure joined the ranks of the walking wounded.

With Martin Skrtel out for weeks, this is not a good time for standing pat with his center backs at the very least.

From the BBC:

“Two weeks ago we had three centre-backs, which is a good situation, and the season started with five – but now it is zero,” Klopp added.

“It is a strange feeling because on one side it is very, very good then we have these injuries.”

Here’s where things get a little intriguing for Liverpool supporters. While a stud defender is never a bad thing and Liverpool still has Europa League concerns, it’s likely the Reds are just looking for cover. Yet at the same time, who’s going to turn down an upgrade?
