Liverpool Chiefs Consider January Transfer Following Private Discussions as Injury Confirmed

Liverpool might consider acquiring a new defender in the January transfer window due to increasing injury worries. Alexis Mac Allister will continue to be unavailable.

Liverpool find themselves in contention for the Premier League title as they navigate the bustling festive season.

During the summer, the club witnessed significant changes in their squad, particularly in midfield. Many players departed, making way for several new signings. Players like Dominik Szoboszlai have swiftly adapted, aiding Liverpool’s recovery from their subpar performance last season.

Jurgen Klopp, known for securing high-profile signings in January, might once again look towards strengthening the team next year. While Klopp has downplayed immediate transfer plans, situations could evolve. Here is latest update from Anfield.

Liverpool Consider Signing a Defender

Liverpool are considering a move for a defender in January, despite Klopp’s earlier statement ruling out such a change in the defensive lineup.

With Joel Matip sidelined due to an ACL injury for the rest of the season, Liverpool face a challenge in centre-back depth. This deficiency might become evident as the season progresses. Historically, Liverpool have occasionally made significant signings during the mid-season.

According to reports from the Daily Mail, Liverpool are attentive to potential opportunities and may act if the financial terms align. Recently, the club’s transfer officials convened to deliberate on potential player pursuits for the next transfer window.

Carvalho Facing Tough Times in Germany

Fabio Carvalho, after his loan transfer from Liverpool in the summer, has faced tough times in showcasing his top performance.

His time on the field has been limited at RB Leipzig, leading to speculations about a potential early return from his Bundesliga stint.

Liverpool’s assistant manager, Pep Lijnders, emphasised that the club’s priority is the well-being and development of the player. “It’s most important he finds rhythm; we all know a player with rhythm is a different player than a player without,” he said.

“A player with confidence or without confidence, and a player who trains in a certain way, is a different player. He needs to find minutes, but it’s not up to me, it’s up to our directors to speak with the club and find the best solution for him. We all want the best for him because he is our player, so wait and see but no decision [has been] made about that.”

Mac Allister Remains Unavailable

Alexis Mac Allister is expected to remain sidelined until the New Year, as indicated by Liverpool’s assistant manager.

Having joined from Brighton in the summer, Mac Allister has been absent from recent matches due to an injury sustained from a harsh tackle against Sheffield United earlier this month. Klopp subsequently admitted that the extent of Mac Allister’s injury was more complicated than initially anticipated.

Lijnders has since said: “Alexis is out of course. He is a player we miss. You see that sometimes in a game is really rushed and he is a player who is really calm. We miss a few boys but with Wataru stepping up, with Ryan, Curt, Harvey, Dom, it’s all good. It will go into the New Year, but we play January 1st. So let’s see.”
