Jurgen Klopp Admits Ings' Injury Could Change Liverpool Transfer Plans

Liverpool could be set for an unexpected invasion into the target market when the window opens in January, with Jurgen Klopp declaring this week that Danny Ings' season-ending knee injury has pushed him to re-evaluate his plans. 

The Reds were supposed to keep their transfer business to a least over the winter following a hectic summer, but Ings' knee problem indicates that Klopp will start to look tough in the attack in the next year; particularly when Sadio Mané departs for the African Cup of Nations.

"The Africa Cup of Nations we already knew about, so we don't need to be influenced or surprised about that, but it could be a moment when we approach the market," he continued.

Klopp: "It's not about how many strikers. Three strikers are enough, I think."

Klopp:

While Sadio is away, they will be without a winger.

Roberto Firmino could play as a kind of a winger which would then give them just two strikers. Still one in need.

Thus, one option mooted for a potential January pursuit is Borussia Dortmund teenager, Christian Pulisic.

Despite the strength of Thomas Tuchel's squad, Christian has started five of his seven Bundesliga appearances, counting most recently in the Revierderby against Schalke 04.

Now, what do you think, will Jurgen opt for Pulisic or would look for other players? 

Do you think Pulisic would be a good purchase?
