Any Liverpool fans who thought 2015 was going top be any less painful than 2014 were given a rude awakening just one day into the New Year when Steven Gerrard announced he would be leaving the club at when his contract expires in May.
The news has rocked Liverpool supporters, many of whom don’t recognise the Reds without their iconic skipper.
The tributes have been pouring in to the Reds’ longest serving captain of all-time since the announcement with his imminent departure dominating the headlines around the Anfield club.
And with all the Gerrard news surrounding the club, it is easy to forget that the January transfer window has in fact opened, a time in which manager Brendan Rodgers can make some changes – if necessary – to try and rectify what has been a dreadful first half of the season.
Whilst the club have been linked with a move for Bayern Munich playmaker Xherdan Shaqiri, reports also suggest the Reds will put a deal in place to bring Divock Origi back to the club ahead of schedule, cutting his loan spell at Lille short by five months.
But as well as potential incomings, January would be seen as the ideal time to axe some of those who have contributed to the Reds dramatic downfall over the past six months.
