Liverpool have got a task on their hands in the coming months. The Reds have to scour the transfer market in order to bring in at least one defender in January, though two would be safer. It is an awkward truth for the owners but FSG need to adjust their Liverpool transfer policy due to the injury crisis.
Liverpool injury crisis
Have you ever seen anything like it?
The Reds have been utterly decimated by injuries in recent weeks and months.
Jürgen Klopp has seen 13 members of his squad resigned to the treatment table over the space of just a couple of months.
It has been an utter disaster for the boss. We started the season with just three centre backs and it looks like we’ve lost two of them for the remainder of the campaign.

Virgil van Dijk has been ruled out for the duration with a ruptured ACL and whilst we’re waiting for the prognosis of Joe Gomez’s knock, it doesn’t look good at all.
Now that we are down to just one centre back, one with an unreliable fitness record at that, we need to be looking towards the January transfer window.
FSG and Liverpool transfer policy
FSG don’t like to spend big, they like to sell before they buy, they like to be disciplined and patient with recruitment.
Unfortunately for our owners, FSG need to adjust Liverpool transfer policy pronto.
This January’s window is no time for us to be stubborn in sticking to our guns.
The owners are going to have to pull their finger out and spend big in order to paper over the cracks in defence.
We need reinforcements and urgently, we can’t afford to waste time. We need players ready to come through the door on New Year’s Day.
We’ve seen the owners go big when needed in the past, addressing problem areas with big spends such as the outlay on Van Dijk and Alisson.
They just need to do the same in a couple of months time. It is a crisis and should be treated as such.
