Warnock: LFC don't need any January signings

According to former Reds full-back, Stephen Warnock, Jurgen Klopp does not need to make any signings in the January transfer window.

With January just around the corner, the defensive injuries were beginning to pile up for Liverpool, and it looked as if a foray into the market would happen but Klopp, initially, decided to use some of his more versatile performers - namely James Milner and Fabinho - to plug the gaping holes left by Trent-Alexander Arnold, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren.

Following victory over Crystal Palace two weekends ago, Klopp found himself down a couple more senior players, with Milner receiving a couple of yellows against Palace, and Fabinho struggling to finish the match.

But former Red, Stephen Warnock, thinks that Liverpool will be fine without any signings. Particularly now that Gini Wijnaldum looks to be available for the match at Anfield against Leicester City.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: "I fully expect, if Georginio Wijnaldum is fit for the next game, for him to go in centre midfield and Fabinho to drop into that right-back position," said the former Liverpool full-back.

"He played there at Monaco before he started playing centre midfield for them.

"It's a position that he's accustomed to, he knows it inside out and he's stepped in the centre-back position quite comfortably when they had their problems there.

"Liverpool's problem is short term. For them to dip into the market and go and sign a player now, I don't think they really need to."

The Sky Sports pundit goes on to say that the 10 day break between games will have given the players a much needed boost. He's probably right in that regard, particularly considering that rivals Man City will have played 3 games before Liverpool are back in action on Wednesday night.

Gini should be back on Wednesday against Leicester
