Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted he will “keep the door open” for January signings.
Klopp had previously been reluctant to make any moves in the upcoming transfer window.
But with centre-backs Joe Gomez and Joel Matip injured, and his side four points clear on top of the Premier League, Klopp knows he might have to bolster his squad.
“I’m very happy with what I’ve got but I’ve always said, you don’t know,” said Klopp. “I’ll keep the door open.
“If some things happen, then we need to have a look. A monstrous number of games are coming up. It is really important that we can react.
“If something dramatically changes, we will need to have a look but if nothing happens, then we will not do anything.”
James Milner has been filling in across the park for the Reds, and Klopp added that he can no longer rely solely on the veteran’s versatility.
“We don’t have that many options anymore because we have two injured centre-halves, so that immediately limits everything,” he added.
“We are not that versatile. Yes, [James] Milner can play five or six different positions, that is not a problem for him, but there are not a lot of players who can play that many positions.
“But the situation is OK.”
