Three players Liverpool can sign as replacement for Saido Mane
It is the sixth day of the January transfer window, expectations are high but the biggest question begging for answer is, who will Jurgen Klopp sign?
Last summer, klopp bolstered the Reds with the Signing of Saido Mane from Southampton, Joel Matip from Schalke, Ragna Klavan from Augsburg, Alex manninger and Georginio Wijnaldum from Newcastle but the need to still bring in new face to Anfield is apparent.
For the first time in a long while, Liverpool are pushing for the title but they will be adversely affected by the absence of Saido Mane, who will be departing for the African Cup of Nations next week. klopp subtly revealed that he may be forced into the transfer window is Mane leave, this he said in November.
“Three strikers is enough, I think. But when Sadio is away we will be without a winger.
“We do not have many wingers, I would say.”
We take a swipe at three players that Klopp could sign this January to keep his side competitive.
Gabriel Barbosa – Inter Milan
The Brazilian winger was on the transfer wishlist of Claudio Renieri in the summer after he grew his footballing stock with impressive cameos at the Olympics for the Samba boys.
He was signed by Inter Milan has failed to replicate his Santos form for Inter Milan. A report claims he has been put up for loan by Stefano Pioli. Liverpool can look to the side of the creative winger.
Jese Rodriguez – Paris Saint-Germain
Jesse Rodrigues has been reduced to a fringe player for the Parc des Princes outfit since making the move in the summer. He has managed two starts this term under Unai Emery, and the coach has revealed that it is possible for the player to leave.
Julian Brandt – Bayer Leverkusen
The youngster is known to be a versatile winger who can play on any of the flanks or through the middle.
Brandt has been one of the stand out performers for his club this season, assisting in six goals and scoring three.
He has a £17m release clause.
