Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will not be doing much transfer business during January deadline day. However, they are still interested in Fulham youngster Fabio Carralho
Jurgen Klopp reminded the world Liverpool have money to spend should they need to by parting with £50million to land Colombia international Luis Diaz this week.
The Reds are not expected to do much more business, although remain interested in Fulham youngster Fabio Carvalho, who they hope to sign for £5million before loaning him back to the Whites for the remainder of the season.
The Reds are open for sale on this deadline day, aside from these two pieces of business. If they get acceptable bids, the Reds could make a few quid for the below players.
Takumi Minamino was signed for just £7.25million from Red Bull Salzburg in 2019 but the Japan international has failed to make a first-team spot his own at Anfield.
Participate in the discussion How does Diaz fit in Klopp’s XI Give us your line-up below.
The midfielder enjoyed a loan spell at Southampton last season, and Klopp is open to selling him this January, with Minamino valued at around £20million, according to the Liverpool Echo.
At the moment, Minamino is being monitored by both Monaco and Leeds.
Divock Origi, who is in the last six months of his Liverpool contract, is another player who could leave Anfield at this time.
Klopp has not yet made Origi a priority despite him being a popular player on Merseyside for the past few decades. He also lost his place in the hierarchy after signings by Diogo Jota, now Diaz.
Atalanta are said to be interested in Origi. However, they might wait until summer to sign him on a free.
Nat Phillips, who has moved to Bournemouth this Monday, is now eligible for a loan. Bournemouth may then look to purchase the defender in the event that they achieve promotion at the close of the season.
Liverpool value Philipps at around £15million.
Neco Williams is another player attracted to the Championship this Jan. He cut short his vacation to Dubai in order to have talks with his representatives about a possible transfer to Bournemouth.
He is still available for sale, though it appears that the project has fallen apart.
Loris Karius, Anfield’s goalkeeper, is desperate for a new club.
Klopp is happy for the shot-stopper to leave but has not yet received an offer.
Should Liverpool offload the aforementioned players, Liverpool would more than recoup the £50million they splashed out on Diaz.
