Does Reds' transfer window show an affirming belief in young English players?

When the transfer window slammed shut on January 31, many Liverpool fans were left scratching their heads as to whether it had been successful for the club, or whether they've been left woefully short up front.
The only business that saw players arrive at Anfield was the purchase of Virgil Van Dijk and Falkirk left-back Tony Gallacher. Van Dijk's arrival made headlines and had fans expecting so much more to follow. After all, if there's £75m to spend on one defender, there must be a cool £30m left over for a forward?
Philippe Coutinho's long-expected move to Barcelona has left the club with cash to spare even after breaking the transfer record for a defender. Speaking of Barcelona, Tony Gallacher was once coveted by the Catalan side and his £250k move may yet prove to be a masterstroke, too. He's a slow burner, but up top, the Reds needed sudden impact.
That need was heightened as old "sick note" himself, Daniel Sturridge, found himself out on loan at West Bromwich Albion. That was another transfer window move that took many by surprise, despite him only playing four games since November 1st. West Brom think they've pulled off something of a coup, if he can stay injury free they'll be right. Sturridge has now moved to 5/1 to be including in the 2018 World Cup squad in latest football betting.
