Liverpool fans are getting slightly edgy inside the Football Transfer Tavern, as new recruits are still to arrive at Anfield, with just 12 days of the January transfer window remaining.
Brendan Rodgers side slipped up at home to Aston Villa yesterday, after an awful first half performance saw them needing to come back from 2-0 goals down to rescue a point from Paul Lambert’s side.
Just how big a slip up it will be, only time will tell, with rivals Tottenham, Manchester United and Everton all still to play this weekend.
The title now looks a bridge too far for Rodgers side, with Manchester City and Arsenal both winning, creating an eight point gap between the Reds and top spot.
Rodgers has spoken of wanting to add to the group this month, with his side not having the squad depth of his top four rivals.
One name that has been consistently linked with a move to Anfield, is FC Basel winger Mohamed Salah.
The ‘Egyptian Messi’ impressed over two Champions League games against Chelsea, and at 21-years-of-age is thought to be one of the most promising young wide players in Europe.
But still a deal is yet to be struck, and with Russian giants Zenit St Petersburg reportedly ready to offer more money, the Reds could be forced to search for alternative wide men.
Here we have identified five transfer alternatives for the Reds to consider.
