Fabrizio Romano has provided his latest update regarding Liverpool and their plans for the rest of the transfer window.
The winter window is now past the half-way mark, with the Anfield club seemingly content to let this period pass.
Despite the injuries and the lack of cover at centre-back, Jurgen Klopp and co. feel no need bolster the ranks this month.
The Reds will hope the decision does not come back to bite them at a critical juncture in the season.
In truth, Liverpool are two or three injuries away from serious trouble, so a healthy dose of luck is also needed to sustain the title challenge.
Now Fabrizio Romano has confirmed this notion in his latest transfer update.
What did Fabrizio Romano say about Liverpool?
Speaking on The Debrief, the Italian transfer guru suggested that the rest of January will be quiet.
The summer transfer window is likely when the Reds will act to replenish and rearm their squad.
Romano said: “It’s mostly looking quiet for Liverpool at the moment this January.”
“The only thing I heard in the last few weeks was that they were looking at some opportunities at centre-back.”
“Maybe if there are some players available on that position, but they are not desperate to make a signing,” the journalist explained.
“They are looking at the market, but there is no hurry because I think Liverpool are very happy with their current squad.”
“They usually prefer to focus on the summer transfer window, and I think that will be the same again here, it looks like this will continue to be their strategy.”
Liverpool should make a January signing
Fabrizio Romano’s update will likely not impress Liverpool fans.
The Reds are currently top of the Premier League table, with Manchester City hot on their trail.
The Cityzens reestablished their title credentials with a come-from-behind win against Newcastle United last weekend.
If Liverpool end up losing out to Man City due to injuries or a lack of options available to Klopp, it will leave behind a bitter taste for Reds fans.
Jurgen Klopp and co. will have to ensure that no further injuries negatively impact the squad as the title race heats up.
The Anfield hierarchy may look back at the winter transfer window with regret if they leave the German to work with a skeleton squad in the second half of the season.
