The January transfer window has officially opened for silly season but which potential signing would Liverpool fans most like to see at Anfield in 2014?
Peeta Mellark: “Hope Liverpool sign Tello!”
Josh: “If Liverpool sign Salah or Tello, Hughes and Pastore, this will be a successful window for us #LFC”
The Reds have been linked with the Barcelona starlet for months on end and his place in the Catalans team is far from cemented but his contract runs until 2018 and Liverpool would likely have to part with a lot of cash to bring him to Anfield. All things considered, I wouldn’t be remotely surprised if this one goes through.
Uche: “Lfc better sign Mo Salah quickly before spurs and Chelsea snap him up ..BR should have learned his lessons by now”
Conor Kelly: “I hope Liverpool do sign Salah and it isn't just all rumours...”
This one looks the most likely deal to go through at Anfield and I wouldn’t be surprised if Salah is announced as a new signing in the next week or even couple of days. The 21-year-old Basel forward is a top talent for the future.
James Slater: “Liverpool should sign Fredy Montero.”
Steven Taylor: “Moreno looks quality from the matches ive seen of him. Do you think liverpool will sign a fullback this window?”
However, I can’t see this rumour working out in reality due to the 26-year-old Colombian’s loan deal with Sporting running until the summer.
Alex Bray: “Liverpool need to sign up Rakitic asap”
AlfRed: “BR must sign Ivan Rakitic, Cristian Tello and Mohammed salah if #LFC needs to win a major trophy this season”
Croatian midfielder Rakitic has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs in recent weeks and months and with his contract still not tied up and entering its final year this summer, the 25-year-old could very well be on his way out of Sevilla but I think it’s more likely to happen in the summer unless a massive offer is on the table to tempt the Spaniards who have lost number of key players in the summer.
Kevin Flynn: “Please please please Liverpool. Sign Juan Mata!!!!”
If Liverpool sign mata then they will 100% win the league, FACT.
Napoleone: “Liverpool should most definitely sign Juan Mata up, along with that boy from Basel #LFC #YNWA”
mark x-tian “@brendanrodgrsok liverpool should sign juan mata from chelsea,he'l surely be of great importance....because we need a player like him”
Luke Cardwell: “if Liverpool don't sign anyone in January apart from mata I will be the happiest person alive - not happening tho.”
The Spanish maestro has been out of favour at Stamford Bridge since the return of Jose Mourinho and whilst he is clearly the fans’ favourite on Twitter I don’t give this deal much chance of happening. I very much doubt the Blues will let him go to a direct domestic rival and I would imagine the player would be more tempted by a move to PSG with whom he has been linked for many months.
Kevin De Bruyne?
Sam Evans: “De Bruyne and Mata want out at Chelsea. Sign them up Liverpool”
Likewise, I think this Chelsea youngster is keen to get out of England and head for Belgium or Germany – I would most expect him to head for the Bundesliga as it’s not worked out for him at Stamford Bridge – his main objective will be guaranteed first-team action and with the talent in Brendan Rodgers’ squad, that’s not assured at Anfield.
Grant Ferguson: “All a want is liverpool to sign @LukeShaw3 , a would be a very happy man”
This would be a surprise to me but you never know – he would definitely fit the profile of a Rodgers’ signing – the Southampton and England youngster has a massive future ahead of him and he’ll want to ensure he continues his development under a manager who gives youth a chance.
