The Liverpool supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern would have been ecstatic following the news that playmaker Philippe Coutinho had signed a new five-year deal with the club on Wednesday, and they will now be wondering if there will be any more transfer business before the January window closes next Tuesday.
The Reds fans standing at the bar may feel that their squad needs freshening up with the Jurgen Klopp’s side yet to win in the Premier League in 2017 – Saturday’s 3-2 home defeat by strugglers Swansea City was a real low point in what has generally been a positive campaign for the Merseyside outfit as they currently sit fourth in the standings.
And their loss to Southampton in the semi-final of the EFL Cup was the cherry on top of the icing, in what has been a dreadful month for the Reds.
The loss of in-form Senegalese forward Sadio Mane to the African Cup of Nations at the start of the year – as well as Coutinho’s recent absence because of injury – could see Liverpool delve into the market before the end of the month – the landlord is certainly hoping to see at least one new face brought in to Anfield.
After Coutinho put pen-to-paper, here are TWO more transfer deals Klopp should seal before the window slams shut next Tuesday…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
