Top of the Klopp’s List: Who Will Liverpool Sign This January?
Liverpool are perhaps one of the most frustrating teams in the Premier League. Fabulous one minute, atrocious the next.
Even so, the club are within touching distance of the top four and have navigated the Group Stage of the Champions League well, having almost qualified for the Round of 16.
Klopp will want some form of silverware this season, and to achieve that he will have to act in the transfer market this January…
Liverpool could be on the verge of sensationally bringing back Javier Mascherano to Anfield.
The club are currently fifth favourites with Betfred to finish inside the top four with their defensive frailties being the main cause of concern.
So Mascherano looks like he will leave Barca in the summer. Is he a player you would like to see return to Liverpool and do you think he would be a good fit if he did return?!— LFC News (@LFCTransferNRS) 12 November 2017
Mascherano would add some stability to the back four with him being a key figure in Barcelona’s success over the years.
It’s believed Paris Saint Germain are looking to offload winger Lucas Moura in January and it’s going to be a dogfight between Liverpool and Arsenal as to who gets him.
At £20million, the 25-year-old would be a huge boost in the Reds hunt for honours and he’d arrive just in time for a Champions League or FA Cup charge.
Liverpool are 10/1 when it comes to the FA Cup odds and with Moura, a man who can flip a game on its head, they’ll fancy their chances of a Wembley trip.
German midfielder Leon Goretzka has been linked with almost every top six Premier League side as the January transfer window draws closer, but Liverpool look in good shape to win out.
The Schalke man is reported to have agreed a deal with Liverpool having impressed in the Bundesliga this season.
He’s netted four times in nine games and with Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho’s future unsure, capturing a midfield player could be vital.
Jurgen Klopp is monitoring AC Milan’s young starlet Suso as Coutinho’s transfer to Barcelona draws ever closer.
Should the Brazilian leave this coming window, it’s expected Klopp will make a move for the 23-year-old, who only left the club in 2015.
The Spaniard has been an ever-present for Milan so far this season and is likely to cost the club around £35million, just a snip of the money they’ll likely receive from the Coutinho sale.
Klopp has been making the most of England’s World Cup successes this year, first signing Dominic Solanke in the summer.
BIG NEWS; Apparently, Liverpool FC is ready to fork out £5m for Wolverhampton midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White, aged 17.— Jamie Davies (@JamieJonDavies) 13 November 2017
January could be the turn of Morgan Gibbs-White, the young Wolves midfielder who impressed in the Under-17s World Cup.
Certainly one for the future, Gibbs-White looks set for a £5million move to Anfield as he looks to make the step up to Premier League football.
