Liverpool have not had the best start to their Premier League campaign as the Reds currently sit sixth in the table, so it would be no surprise if the club look to the January transfer window to strengthen the team with a new update emerging from a reliable source.
Italian journalist and transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has revealed some exciting details about Liverpool’s plans for the upcoming transfer window amid worries about the quality in the current squad.
Romano told GIVEMESPORT:
“In January, it will be about the opportunities. I think they need some fresh players to help Jurgen Klopp.
“They’re exploring the market. They’re having some contacts to see if there are some good opportunities, but the main focus will be on the new midfielder, a top midfielder, in the summer.”
It is no secret that the Reds are in desperate need of a refresh in the centre of the pitch, especially with contracts shortly expiring and many of the midfielders coming to the latter stages of their career.
Naby Keita, James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will all be – as it stands – out of contract in June 2023, whilst Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara are now well into their 30s, so injecting some new talent into the midfield would be hugely advantageous to the squad and the manager.
Jurgen Klopp could get his hands on some great talent in the January transfer window or next summer as he tries to get Liverpool back to where they belong; competing at the highest level in the Premier League.
Indeed, it has been revealed that FSG are now interested in either selling the club or finding a serious investor in the future so it will be interesting to see if the club is backed financially to the level that is desperately needed over the upcoming transfer window and beyond whilst it remains the American owners’ responsibility to do so.
With that being said, the signing of a midfielder must be the immediate priority at the very least for the powers at Anfield and doing so in January rather than the summer could put Liverpool in a great position to climb the Premier League table in the second half of the season.
