RAY HOUGHTON reckons Liverpool are well placed to spend big in January.
Liverpool have enjoyed a largely impressive season so far and host Stoke this afternoon looking to close a nine-point gap on leaders Chelsea.
But Houghton still wants to see Jurgen Klopp loosen his purse strings next month to strengthen their bid for a first Premier League title.
The former midfielder, who spent five successful years at Anfield between 1987 and 1992, can’t see any reason why a big name wouldn’t want to join the Reds in their current position.
He told LFC TV: “Liverpool have never been in a better position in recent years to go and buy.
“Because we are a progressive club, we have got a great manager, things are going well, Liverpool are a big attraction at the moment.
“I think Liverpool are in a really good position – new stand, more money in the club, great manager who can attract players.
“And if the right player became available, I think they will jump at the opportunity to come and join Liverpool.
“Personally, I would.”
