Five January signings who could fill Mane’s void
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side have suffered an enormous blow with Sadio Mané departing Merseyside to join up with the Senegal national team for the African Cup of Nations.
The tournament angers the majority of Premier League supporters every other year, as some of the league’s best stars depart for the continent of Africa, with the vast majority absent for four-six weeks depending on their national side’s progress.
Mané, who joined in the summer from Southampton, left the Reds following the team’s 2-2 draw with Sunderland. His absence will deal Liverpool a significant blow in their pursuit of a first Premier League crown, but Klopp has the chance to sign a replacement for Mané this winter.
Not only would a signing cover the Reds in the short-term, but also prepare Klopp for life with European football for next season.
Without further delay, here are FIVE players he should consider signing this January to fill Mané’s void.
