Liverpool transfer update: Reds scouts watch duo and striker eyes January move

first_imgFollowing the utterly ridiculous events that unfolded on Saturday lunchtime in the 5-4 win at Norwich, Liverpool could do worse than turn to the transfer market to remedy some clear deficiencies.Their weaknesses, particularly in defence and in goal, were exposed emphatically yet again with the Reds now conceding seven goals from the last eight shots they’ve faced in the Premier League.The five goals at Carrow Road papered over some cracks in attack too, with the Merseysiders managing just 30 goals in 23 Premier League games so far this campaign.The January transfer window is usually a more anticlimactic event than the summer version, and Liverpool’s two recruits so far – Marjo Grujic and Steven Caulker on loan – support that theory.So will they choose to re-enter the market with a week to go?talkSPORT rounds up all the latest Liverpool gossip – click the yellow arrow above, right, to scan the rumours… 3. One goalkeeper in, one goalkeeper out? – The goalkeeping situation at Anfield is an interesting one. Simon Mignolet’s new five-year deal was greeted with mixed reviews to say the least, with many feeling he was signed on to protect his resale value. The Reds are still very much monitoring Barcelona stopper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, who is eyeing a Nou Camp departure to enhance his Euro 2016 hopes with Germany. The Sunday Mirror believe the Reds could make a late move in January to avoid increased competition for Ter Stegen in the summer. That would mean bad news for Adam Bogdan, who is already contemplating his Anfield future just six months after arriving, according to The Sun. Bogdan has looked out of his depth in his fleeting appearances this season and has failed to depose Mignolet from the number one spot. 4. Reds boost after Real Madrid approach is rejected – Liverpool have reportedly been put on red alert after Real Madrid were rebuffed by Partizan Belgrade following an approach for 19-year-old sensation Andriya Zivkovic. The Spanish giants were unsuccessful with an £11m bid for the youngest Serbian international in history after Zivkovic’s father rejected the move because he felt it would ruin his son’s career. Liverpool and Manchester City are subsequently now the frontrunners for the striker. 5 5. Jerome Sinclair looks to leave Anfield before the end of January – One player seemingly on his way out of Anfield is Jerome Sinclair, who has been linked with a move to Watford and several La Liga clubs. Considering Sinclair’s age – he’s only 19 – the club would be entitled to compensation if he were to leave when his contract expires in the summer, but only if he departs for another English club. The Telegraph claim Sinclair will tell the Reds he wants his exit to be finalised quickly, preferably before the end of the month. 5 5 5 1. Liverpool send scouts to watch Marseille duo – find out about four more Liverpool transfer stories by clicking the arrow above – In terms of their summer plans, Liverpool are actively looking at the Ligue 1 market. The Daily Mail believe the Reds sent scouts to watch £25m-rated Michy Batshuayi in Marseille’s win at Lyon on Sunday, with the Belgian striker also attracting interest from Manchester United and Arsenal. The Guardian claim Liverpool were also keeping an eye on Georges Kevin-Ndoulou who, like Batshuayi, has starred for Marseille this season. 5 2. Conflicting reports on Alex Teixeira negotiations – Liverpool’s pursuit of Alex Teixeira shows no signs of slowing down despite the Reds having a second bid – in the region of £28m – rejected last night, according to the Daily Mail. The gap in valuations between themselves and Shakhtar Donetsk looked like causing issues over any deal for the 26-goal striker, but reports this morning from ESPN Brazil suggest Liverpool are now willing to meet the Ukrainian club’s demands. That means Teixeira, who Shakhtar rate at £38m, could usurp Andy Carroll as the Merseysiders’ record signing last_img read more
