Liverpool supporters have been particularly buoyant in the Transfer Tavern this week after seeing their side extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to eight matches with a thumping 5-1 success over Brighton on Saturday, a result which also took them into the Premier League’s top four.
Jurgen Klopp’s men went into their clash with the Seagulls off the back of easing past Stoke City 3-0 at the bet365 Stadium in midweek, and they produced another clinical attacking display to dismantle Chris Hughton’s side on the South Coast. First half goals from Emre Can and Roberto Firmino gave the visitors a healthy cushion, and strikes after the break from Firmino and Philippe Coutinho, as well as an own goal from Lewis Dunk, sealed a comprehensive victory for the Merseysiders, who in turn moved above Arsenal into fourth place following the Gunners’ defeat to Manchester United.
Thus, there have been several delighted Liverpudlians in the Tavern this week, many of whom are eagerly anticipating their team’s clash with Spartak Moscow in the Champions League tonight, with Klopp’s men knowing that victory will secure top spot in Group E, and thus their place in the last 16.

However, the midfielder hasn’t featured for Sevilla since their incredible 3-3 draw with Liverpool a few weeks ago, and as such his future looks far from certain amid reported interest from several Premier League clubs, including Klopp’s Reds.
And were N’Zonzi to indeed make the move to Anfield in January, here are TWO other stars who could follow him to the Merseyside giants…
