Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Liverpool are not actively looking to sign new players, although he refused to rule out further transfer business at Anfield before the end of January.

The Reds have already been involved in the two biggest transfers of the month, with Philippe Coutinho heading to Barcelona for £146m and Virgil van Dijk arriving from Southampton for £75m.

Klopp insists Liverpool are not actively looking for new arrivals but stopped short of declaring his transfer business finished for the month.

“If something jumps in my face, maybe we would think about it but we don’t actively try to find new players that we don’t know,” said Klopp.

“I’ve said it before, we have to use the players that we have. That makes sense. We have really high-quality players, especially Adam Lallana.

“He is not the replacement for Philippe Coutinho, he is a completely different player but a fantastic player. He is back, that is good. Are we active? No.”

Sky sources understand that Sevilla have made contact with Liverpool over a loan move for Daniel Sturridge but Klopp refused to confirm if an approach has been made for the England international.

“If there are any rumours, I am not aware of them but it is not important,” said Klopp. “We will see what happens until January 31.

“We have a long and very decisive part of the season still to play. We need all of our players, we will see how it will be.”
