The Premier League season has not gone well for Jurgen Klopp’s team. The Champions League finalists from last season are now in sixth position in the league, some 15 points behind league leader Arsenal and seven points behind the top four teams.
In response, Liverpool will try to add some fresh faces during the January transfer window to aid the club in the second half of the season.
The Merseyside club will specifically attempt to address their midfield woes after Konrad Laimer and Jude Bellingham were mentioned in connection with the position.
A new rumor claims that there will also be names moving in the opposite direction, with up to six players perhaps leaving Anfield during the winter transfer window.
The contracts of first-team players Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain expire in the summer, so the Reds will probably try to get some money for both of them rather than let them walk away for nothing at the end of the year.
Firmino, whose contract expires in the summer, has been in excellent form this season, scoring nine goals and dishing out four assists in all competitions.
The Brazilian’s importance to the squad has waned recently, although he formerly played a key role in Klopp’s three-pronged attack line.
However, it would be improbable that Klopp would allow Firmino go in January given the injuries to Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz, as well as Darwin Nunez’s inconsistent start to life on Merseyside.
According to reports, the 31-year-old is in talks with Liverpool about a new contract that might extend beyond the current campaign.
