Newsnow Liverpool brings you the latest news on Liverpool January transfer target as report claims that the Reds scouts have been sent to watch a young talent sponsored by Adidas, ahead of 2024 January transfer window.
What’s the Latest Liverpool Transfer News?
Liverpool have sent scouts to monitor an overseas defender, but they are not the sole Premier League club interested in his services, according to report.
During the summer, FSG and Jurgen Klopp secured the signings of four new midfielders: Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo, and Ryan Gravenberch. However, with 11 player departures sanctioned, there remains room for additional recruits in the squad.
Who are Liverpool January Transfer Targets?
Liverpool have been actively evaluating their options in the market for January and have recently been linked with moves for Sao Paulo center-back Lucas Beraldo, Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Pedro Neto, and Borussia Dortmund forward Donyell Malen.
Quinten Timber from Feyenoord has emerged as another potential target. Despite joining Arne Slot’s side from FC Utrecht last summer, the central midfielder has made an impressive impact with 41 appearances under his belt.
Will Quinten Timber Sign for Liverpool in January?
Quinten Timber still has three years left on his contract with Feyenoord, but recent reports suggest that top clubs are eager to bring the 22-year-old to Merseyside at the start of the next year.
According to 90min’s transfer update on Timber, Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, and Manchester United have all deployed scouts to watch him in action this season. These Premier League clubs have filed “favourable reports” about their target.
Timber has also caught the attention of Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Monaco, and Napoli overseas, with his performances making a “lasting impression,” particularly on Premier League sides.
Quinten Timber shares a connection with Arsenal defender Jurrien Timber as his twin brother. If he does make a significant move in 2024, he will have some insight into English football through his sibling.
Timber excels in the offensive aspect of his game, with ten direct goal involvements (four goals, six assists) in his 41 appearances at Feyenoord. His playstyle is described as a constant “threat” by journalist Josh Bunting.
Currently earning £15,000 per week and sponsored by Adidas, Timber boasts a remarkable 98th percentile for successful take-ons, showcasing his ability to dribble past opponents. He has taken 16 shots this season, ranking third-highest in his squad, according to Feyenoord’s statistics.
Furthermore, Timber is a versatile player who has been deployed in eight different positions across the pitch throughout his career. He has played in four roles in the center, two in defense, and on both flanks, making him an excellent option to have in the squad in case of unexpected injuries.
