Liverpool Transfer Targets Sancho, Diego Carlos And Players Linked With The Club


All the latest Reds transfer news, rumours, quotes, gossip and done deals for the January 2020 transfer window

It’s hard to see where exactly Liverpool need to improve their squad, what with the Reds retaining a substantial lead at the top of the Premier League summit and making steady progress in the Champions League and FA Cup.

Liverpool did not make any significant first-team signings in the summer of 2019, opting to instead push on the momentum of the previous season and playing to their squad strengths.

Nevertheless, Jurgen Klopp might be tempted to expand his squad depth as he looks to clinch Liverpool’s first-ever Premier League title.

Liverpool aren't expected to do further incoming business in January following their £7.25 million ($9.6m) swoop of RB Salzburg and Japan starlet Takumi Minamino.

The Reds have already turned their attention to their summer activity with longer-term targets, however, which will potentially see more arrivals at Anfield.

Sevilla defender  Diego Carlos  is on Liverpool’s transfer target list, with the Brazilian having impressed for the Spanish Liga side since his arrival from Nantes in 2019.

It is also understood that he has been eyed by Real Madrid as a potential replacement for Sergio Ramos, and comes with a £64m release clause.

Klopp and co are another admirers of Dortmund wonderkid Jadon Sancho , who has been impressing in Bundesliga.

Of course, the England international’s talents are far from an open secret, with the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea already keen on splashing out the cash on the winger – with the Red Devils understood to spend over £70m ($90m) on him.

Though Sancho has close relationships with England team-mates Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham at Stamford Bridge, the opportunity to work under Klopp might be a factor in Sancho’s decision on his future.

It is understood, though, that Dortmund do not plan on losing such an integral player mid-way through the campaign, making a summer move more likely.

Bayer Leverkusen winger  Leon Bailey  is also a potential target for the Reds, who are keen on adding more squad depth.

The Jamaica international could provide for a cheaper, alternative option for Sancho and his expectantly high price tag.

Seventeen-year-old Wigan forward  Joe Gelhardt  has also been watched by the Reds, as well as 19-year-old Brescia and Italy midfielder  Sandro Tonali .
