Liverpool have a couple of areas to strengthen in the January transfer window.
Persistent links to midfield and attackers might indicate that these are two positions which Jurgen Klopp could attempt to bolster over the next four or five weeks.
If he does, then unfortunately some bodies will need to leave too.
And here, HITC Football looks at three players who Liverpool could offload during the January transfer window.
Talented as he may be, the Guinea international is simply far too unreliable.
That’s perfectly illustrated in the fact that the £52 million signing [Echo] from Leipzig in 2018 is yet to make a Premier League appearance this season due to injury.
According to Soccerway, Keita, who is out of contract next summer, has only started 46 games in this competition since arriving well over four years ago.
Unless Liverpool want to lose a major investment for absolutely nothing, this is someone who could – and should – be sold, if there’s any takers.
The Botlon-born powerhouse has been a wonderful servant to Liverpool.
But unfortunately, Klopp has Virgil van Dijk, Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all ahead of him in the pecking order.
And although he’s an excellent central defender, Phillips simply isn’t going to play ahead of any of those four with any regularity.
Labelled ‘absolutely insane‘ [official website] by Klopp toward the end of the 2020-21 campaign, this is clearly a very good player and one who is honestly too good to waste any more time warming the bench.
Signed on loan from Juventus in August, the Brazil international hasn’t proven a good addition.
It must be noted that it’s down to injury more than anything else, with Arthur only managing 13 minutes of competitive football at Liverpool since his arrival.
But he, like Keita, is unreliable and with speculation about him potentially having his loan cut short in January, well this termination certainly makes sense.
