With the transfer deadline fast approaching, Liverpool could look to make a few additions today in the hope of better fortunes in the second half of their campaign. The Reds secured a crucial 3-0 away win at the John Smith’s Stadium last night when they comfortably saw off Huddersfield Town through goals from Emre Can, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah to consolidate their position in the Premier League table. The Merseyside club are currently sitting in 4th place in the league table with a tally of 50 points and just 13 matches remaining in their league campaign. Jurgen Klopp’s side are five points clear of Tottenham Hotspur having played a game more with the Spurs facing off against Manchester United at the Wembley Stadium on Wednesday night.

The race to finish in the top 4 is heating up between the two clubs but with the departure of Phillipe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge in recent weeks, the five-time European champions could be in need of a few signings before the transfer window comes to a close when the clock strikes midnight tonight. Let’s take a look at three potential players who the Merseyside club can look to target on this transfer deadline day to boost their chances of a top 4 finish and progress into the latter stages of the UEFA Champions League.

Kevin Trapp

The German goalkeeper has fallen down the pecking order at Paris Saint-Germain this season and has only featured in 6 matches this term. He has only let in six goals during that time while keeping two clean sheets. The Ligue 1 keeper is suffering from lack of game time and in our opinion, Liverpool should have a look at signing him. The 27-year-old looks like he can be an upgrade on both the Liverpool keepers and will come in with a wealth of experience from his time in German and French football.

James Tarkowski

The Burnley centre-back has put in some eye-catching displays for Sean Dyche’s high flyers this season and will be the perfect solution to the Reds’ defensive woes, which has harmed their chances of winning silverware this term.  The 25-year-old has featured in 23 matches for the Clarets in this campaign and has been instrumental in his side’s climb to the top half of the Premier League.

Javier Pastore

The Argentine midfielder has played in 20 matches for Paris Saint-Germain this season and has found the back of the net 5 times and provided one assist in all competitions. Liverpool could use a creative playmaker, especially someone of the calibre of Pastore in their midfield with Coutinho leaving the club earlier in this transfer window. 

It remains to be seen what lies ahead in this busy transfer deadline day and whether the Reds end up making any further additions to their squad.
