Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has a number of things he needs to address before the second half of this season resumes in full swing to ensure the club’s success this season and their long-term future. The Reds face Leicester City next before this year ends and the January transfer window commences, so they’ll need to prioritise three things that are necessary in order to compete for the Premier League title.

Jurgen Klopp Will Have To Get Liverpool Performing Consistently

The Merseyside club have had a dismal start this season as they’ve only grabbed seven wins from their fifteen league matches so far, which has seen them sit at the sixth position of the league table. In terms of their performance on the pitch, they have largely been inconsistent with their form and seem to lack the confidence that they had last season. Jurgen Klopp will need to find a way to help them become consistent on the pitch if they wish to compete for the league title this season.

If things were to remain as they are then the Reds would not only lose out on the title but will also be robbed of a Champions League place next season which would be more than disappointing.

Bringing Reinforcements In The Midfield Department

Bringing reinforcements in the midfield has been a matter of debate for quite a while after injuries disrupted their performances earlier this season. Klopp will only have a few midfielders at his disposal at the end of this season as three of them go out of contract next summer. The January transfer window could be the perfect time to bring in quality players that can help them resolve the issue.

The Merseysiders have been heavily linked to Jude Bellingham and Enzo Fernandes in recent weeks but to bring in even one of them they’d have to pay in the excess of £100 million and splashing huge money has not been Liverpool’s transfer policy unless they are in dire need of doing so.

Sorting The Situation Regarding Out Of Contract Players

As mentioned earlier and reported in Liverpool Echo, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita are the three midfielders who will go out of contract at the end of this season including Roberto Firmino. But the latter is most likely to sign a contract extension in the following weeks being the most productive out of the four. However, the former three have their future hanging in the balance and Klopp has yet to decide whether to sanction their exit or keep them at Anfield in the foreseeable future.

Regardless of that decision, the Reds will need to bring in more quality players into the squad in order to save themselves from a necessary overhaul in the club’s long-term future. So the German tactician will have to get busy in the transfer market and soon. Just signing Cody Gakpo won’t do at this stage.
