Liverpool are allegedly willing to signing a loan midfielder before the January transfer market closes on Tuesday

The Reds’ only winter signing so far has been Dutch forward Cody Gakpo from PSV Eindhoven, but fans have urged Jurgen Klopp’s team to bring in at least one midfielder.

Liverpool elected not to spend large money on a big name in the engine room last summer, instead signing Arthur Melo on loan from Juventus on transfer deadline day.

Due to a catastrophic thigh injury, the Brazilian has only played 13 minutes for Liverpool, but he could make his long-awaited return after surgery next month.

Liverpool are said to be interested in players such as Jude Bellingham, Ruben Neves, and Matheus Nunes, but the Merseyside club will not make a move until the summer.

While Liverpool saves their resources for a possible nine-figure Bellingham swoop, Klopp’s players continue to struggle with form, losing 2-1 to Brighton & Hove Albion in the fourth round on Sunday.

Following that defeat at the Amex, Klopp ruled out his team making any more business in January, telling the press: “No, nothing will happen during this transfer window. It’s all good.”

According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool could still try to bring in a new midfielder on loan in the coming days, and the Reds are scouting many top European squads for players.

According to the article, Liverpool is interested in the midfields of PSG, Juventus, and Atletico Madrid, though it is unknown if Klopp has any specific individuals in mind.

Liverpool set to lose all of James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on free transfers at the conclusion of the season, at which point the club’s pursuits of elite targets like as Bellingham and Nunes will accelerate.

We have different plans for Milly, but I think everyone knows that he wants to keep playing,” Klopp told reporters earlier this month. “You can’t judge someone according to his age. He’s 37 years old, but he doesn’t look like this when he’s in training.

“It is not that Milly intends to play 64 games a season but in a 64-game season Milly may be highly crucial. That is the case. Milly has played in 600 games, the majority of which have been for Liverpool.


“Even a player who had a few clubs might end up at ‘his’ club and I would consider Liverpool as ‘his’ club, and I am very confident the club should use his character and his thinking because it is extremely special.

“There could be more fancy players out there but no one has a similar mindset and that makes him tremendously useful for us. And it’s not because I’m ‘too loyal;’ it’s simply a fact.”

In addition to Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Milner, Liverpool has Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Harvey Elliott, and Stefan Bajcetic vying for midfield minutes, with the latter recently signing a contract extension until 2027 as a reward for his breakout season.
