Liverpool fans are bracing themselves for another window here in the Transfer Tavern. Hopefully for them, the New Year sales will go a lot better than the summer months, which saw the club fail to properly strengthen, in the eyes of many.
On the back of the close call of selling Philippe Coutinho in the last window, it looks like Barcelona are going to come knocking once again come January it might be a little harder to keep the advances at an arm’s length this time around, such is the persistent nature of the Blaugrana.
Our glass collector thinks Jurgen Klopp’s main priority should be to sort his defence out in the January window, though life without their brilliant Brazilian will pose another problem for the German man.
Our landlord says it’s up to the Liverpool boss now to start drafting up a potential shortlist, while their defence has been abysmal at times this year, the front line is thriving and losing the Brazilian would have a huge effect on the teams morale and dynamics.
Still, perhaps these FIVE players could help replace Coutinho in a similar standard and give the Reds a different edge and outlook in the team.
