Latest Liverpool transfer news: 3 possible Rumours, Leading Stories, New Developments
There’s been a lot of transfer talk surrounding the Reds in recent times, especially with the January transfer window coming up fast. We, at Alley Sport take a look and break down the latest Liverpool transfer news to keep you up-to-date with all that is happening in the world of transfers.
Latest Liverpool transfer news: Prospective targets
With the Reds in blistering form in the league so far, almost all of their transfer activity has been about reinforcements and adding to a squad already blessed with talent. As Mo Salah and Sadio Mane are likely to depart for the Africa Cup of Nations in January next year, missing a crucial 9 games in the process, a lot has been speculated as to how Jurgen Klopp will go about replacing his talismanic duo.
As such, Liverpool continue to be linked with a number of top forwards all over the globe, with names like Erling Haaland, Paulo Dybala and Alexander Isak all being mentioned in the past few days. Here, we take a look at two of their ideal, yet most realistic options in the striking department along with a crucial midfielder as we go through the latest Liverpool transfer news, all for you!
Latest Liverpool transfer news: João Félix to Anfield?
According to the latest reports from reliable footballing website FourFourTwo, it is rumoured that Liverpool could make a surprise move for Portuguese starlet João Félix from Atletico Madrid. Diego Simeone’s side paid in excess of £100 million to Benfica for the young forward in 2019, but his time at the club so far has not been as successful as both parties would have wanted thus far.
Considering both clubs’ situations, speculations have been rife that Jürgen Klopp would look to bring Félix to Anfield this January for a price of around £63 million. If the move does go through, it will surely be ideal for Félix to continue his progress under the expert guidance of the German coach, as he will hope to become a key part of Livepool’s setup in the years ahead.
Latest Liverpool transfer news: Lautaro Martínez to add to the Reds’ frontline?
As per reports from Italian media, Liverpool have made enquiries about the availability of Lautaro Martínez this January transfer window. In a story published by CalcioMercato, the Italian equivalent of The Daily Star, it has been claimed that Inter Milan have received approaches from the Reds for their star Argentinian forward regarding a possible move.
A team player who plays a lot like fellow South American Bobby Firmino at Liverpool, he would be the perfect foil to the guile and pace of Salah and Mane down the wings if the move does indeed materialise. However, with Inter Milan fiercely competing at the top of the Serie A, it is unlikely they would let their star striker leave mid season amidst such an intense and important title charge.
Latest Liverpool transfer news: Frenkie De Jong to jump ship?
In a disappointing season for Barcelona, the only shining light of their campaign has been Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong. Versatile and strong in the air as well as with both feet, the former Ajax midfielder is reportedly a target for the Reds as the Blaugrana have dropped to the Europa League and are in financial turmoil.
Reports from Barcelona suggest that they will look to offload big name players like de Jong and Marc-André ter Stegen to raise funds in the upcoming transfer windows. Spanish outlet Sport also claims that Barca manager Xavi has not been entirely impressed with de Jong’s performances, and with The Red Echo claiming that Jurgen Klopp is “crazy” for the midfielder, a move could well be on the cards in January.
