Liverpool needs a decent centre-half in January, Jason McAteer has said.
He recently revealed that even if the club might look to sign a striker next month, reinforcements are needed more in defence.
According to him, the Reds should strive for more improvement this season, and new faces are needed to make that happen.
He added that Liverpool is the biggest club in Europe currently, so it is time they start acting like one in the transfer window.
His words, “With the January transfer window fast approaching, there have been a few strikers that have been linked with a move to Anfield.
“Liverpool is the biggest club in Europe currently, they are up there with the likes of Bayern Munich and can hold their own with Barcelona and Real Madrid.
“There is a lot of money to be made in this transfer window and agents will be looking at it and thinking about where they can put their players. Agents will be linking their players to these clubs and it might not necessarily be true at all.
“If a player in the media is being looked at by Liverpool, then suddenly, it makes a certain person more appealing to other teams too. It is a lot of mind games that take place, the agents do it, the players themselves play up to the game too, but it doesn’t mean that the football club being mentioned wants to buy them.
“Clubs are always looking to strengthen your squad and improve in the key areas. Competition for places is healthy and you’ve got to make sure that you keep evolving as a football club.
“Teams can’t afford to stand still and rest on the players that are currently doing well, and you’ve got to keep the players motivated by winning trophies.”
