Along with the arrival of the New Year 2020, also opened a transfer market for European teams to buy or sell players. Liverpool itself has bought new players some time ago and was only officially introduced since Wednesday (01/01). Then, will there be another new player coming?
The defending champion of the European Champions League has indeed hooked one of the attacking midfielders from Japan, Takumi Minamino. The Minamino transfer from Red Bull Salzburg was inaugurated before January. However, the 24-year-old figure was only officially introduced by the Marseyside Team since January 1.
However, Minamino could not be deployed in the match against Sheffield United, at dawn later (03/01), and most likely only be able to play when Liverpool face city rivals, Everton in the FA Cup. Minamino’s arrival was clearly a good injection for Jurgen Klopp’s team.
However, if only Minamino was bought by Liverpool on the stock exchange this winter? In fact, the Reds are being hit by a hurricane of injury. A number of pillar players had to pull over, starting from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Xherdan Shaqiri, Fabinho, Joel Matip, to Dejan Lovren. However, coach Jurgen Klopp hinted that his club might not be recruiting new players again.
The reason is because the transfer market in the middle of the season is always difficult, because only a handful of players are willing to move in the midst of competition.
“Every year we experience the same situation. Always difficult, we might not be too busy. We will see what happens, but apparently not, “Klopp was quoted as saying by BBC Sport.
In fact, besides the goalkeeper, Liverpool now only have 13 players to play in the match against Sheffield United. Takumi Minamino is included, it’s just that the Japanese player can’t be dropped in the party later.
“At the moment we have 13 players besides goalkeepers plus Takumi, but not for this match,” Klopp said.
Meanwhile, Klopp seems quite calm with the current situation of Liverpool. His troops are currently standing firmly at the top of the standings with 55 points or 8 ahead of nearest rivals, Leicester City, who have played 21st week earlier this morning.
