Journalist Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Liverpool could be busy in the January transfer market amid some recent injury worries.
After the poor start to the Premier League, the Reds already find themselves 11 points off the top of the table. To make things worse, they are missing a number of senior players.
For instance, Diogo Jota is set to miss the World Cup, as will Juventus loanee Arthur Melo. Luis Diaz, Ibrahima Konate, Joel Matip, and Naby Keita are also sidelined with various issues too (via Mirror).
With that being the case, Liverpool may well feel as though they need to strengthen in the winter market. And Romano has claimed that they are indeed open to doing business should the right opportunity arise.
Speaking on House of Champions: A Daily CBS Soccer Podcast, he said (16:3o): “I’m told they are open. They are open, they are keeping an eye on the market.
“And so let’s see. At the moment there is still nothing advanced or decided but it’s a possibility.”
One exciting name that has been linked with the club in recent times is Real Madrid midfielder Federico Valverde. Indeed, former player David James even claimed that signing the Uruguayan could have the Reds challenging for the title again.
In a similar fashion, according to a report by El Pais, Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has even been advised to join Klopp’s side amid ongoing issues for the player in France.
Either of those players certainly would make for a statement signing, but it remains to be seen as to whether or not Liverpool would be ready to spend that sort of cash in the winter. That sort of transfer seems rather unlikely but it does seem as though something could be cooking.
