Jurgen Klopp has hinted Liverpool will only splash the cash this month only if the funds are available

As the January transfer window officially opens, speculation has been rife about how Klopp and Liverpool intend to address the midfield problems that have hampered their season so far.

Links with European midfielders have been steady, with Jude Bellingham, Enzo Fernandez and Sofyan Amrabat all becoming household names on this transfer blog.

But Klopp, speaking ahead of today's trip to Brentford, reiterated his views on the current crop and urged caution over extra mid-season deals: "Honestly, we cannot play like Monopoly. We never did and I don't understand it," he said. 

"Of course we cannot just spend and never could. And we always sort our situations. It is a big part of my philosophy, really working full of faith and trust with the players we have and not constantly questioning them by telling them that we need another player in their position.

"But that somebody is surprised when I say we will not now start splashing the cash - is that the phrase? I never did it but I know it anyway! - that should be really clear.

"If there is something we can do, and that was always the case, and that means the right player and financial situation, we will do it. Then if not, then no."
