The German has foreseen two players’ exits from the club come the end of the season, and will make one signing to replace them, as per reports
Liverpool have been locked in a two-way battle with holders Manchester City as they look to claim their maiden crown in the Premier League era. They pumped five past Watford on Wednesday night to maintain their one-point lead over Pep Guardiola & Co at the top of the table to finally signal a return to form. The Anfield club had been going through some patchy form over the past few weeks, drawing their previous two games against Manchester United and Bayern Munich 0-0.
Their marvelous attacking trident seem to have been hit by a bout of mid-season fatigue, but the manager does not have too much confidence in their back-ups, with Daniel Sturridge being a shadow of the player he once was, scoring just four times in 21 appearances, and Divock Origi not considered anywhere near good enough for a side chasing titles.
And Klopp expects the duo to make a beeline for the exit door, with the Liverpool Echo reporting that the former Dortmund gaffer will sign one striker to replace them. Red Bull Leipzig’s Timo Werner has been heavily linked with a move to Merseyside for a while now, but the Reds face stiff competition from Bayern.
