Jamie Carragher doesn’t believe Jurgen Klopp will sign players to strengthen Liverpool in January, with the German instead looking to a summer of change.

Liverpool have been predictably linked to a list of players – mainly ones from Klopp’s former home in the Bundesliga – as speculation mounts as to whether the Liverpool manager will look to bring in fresh blood in his first transfer window at Anfield.

However club legend Carragher feels that Klopp will instead focus on the summer with regards to player recruitment.

“Now and again you see signings coming in January who make a big difference – Luis Suarez was huge for Liverpool. Daniel Agger came in January too and he did really well, but it’s not normally a time when you get the best players on offer,” Carragher told the London Evening Standard.

“I imagine the changes he [Klopp] will look to make and want to implement will come more in the summer.”

Liverpool are currently 10th in the Premier League after just four wins in their opening 12 games, and Carragher feels this is symptomatic of a squad that “isn’t quite good enough”.

The Sky Sports pundit added: “At present the team and the squad isn’t quite good enough to be where everyone wants Liverpool to be and that’s the whole point why you bring a new manager in.
