3 Midfielders Liverpool Could Look To Sign In January Including This Arsenal Ace

Liverpool are still unbeaten in the Premier League following their hard-fought 0-0 draw versus Manchester City at Anfield last weekend. The Reds have managed to grind out results despite their front three failing to fire on all cylinders. Jurgen Klopp’s men currently hold the joint-best defensive record in the English top-flight after conceding just three goals in 8 league matches so far.

However, the midfield has been an area of concern of late. The trio of James Milner, Jordan Henderson, and Georginio Wijnaldum are all hard-working, but they lack the quality required to open up opposition defences. Naby Keita was brought in by Klopp to add more creativity in midfield, but he is yet to adjust to life in the Premier League and has not looked like he can act as a facilitator.

Hence, the Merseyside club needs to recruit well in January and bring in a world-class creator in midfield so that they could be in with a chance of winning the Premier League title this season. Here are three options for Klopp to consider during the winter transfer window.

Saúl Ñíguez 

The Atletico Madrid midfield enforcer has enjoyed a majestic start to this campaign and has already put in a few match-winning displays at the Spanish capital so far. At 23, the Spaniard still has his best years ahead of him which Klopp’s team could look to benefit from in the next few years. He would be an ideal option to take up the creativity duties at the heart of the Reds midfield.

Aaron Ramsey

The Arsenal talent has been a loyal servant for the North London club but it seems like his time at the Emirates Stadium could be coming to an end soon. He would become a free agent next summer so the Gunners might look to move him on in January so that they can generate some funds from his impending departure. The Reds should look to swoop in for his signature as he might be available on a cut-price deal.

Moreover, the Welsh talent has shown in the past that he can score and create essential goals on a consistent basis as long as he can stay injury free. So he should be a worthy addition to the Liverpool midfield and might solve some of their creative problems.

Nabil Fekir

The French international could still be a fantastic addition for the Reds of Merseyside even though his move to Anfield failed to materialise last summer. He has the potential to become a great number 10 and Klopp should consider revisiting the prospect of signing him.
