Teenager Odegaard among the top five players linked with Liverpool this week


Liverpool have been linked with a number of new players and here are five of the best...

Another week, another load of potential new arrivals linked with Liverpool; and this with the January transfer window still more than two months away.

Liverpool have been hit-and-miss in the Premier League so far this season and while Brendan Rodgers made wholesale changes in the summer, that has not stopped plenty more changes being tipped in the near future.

Below are the top five players to have been linked with Liverpool in recent days:

Martin Odegaard

The 15-year-old Norweigan sensation scored both goals in Stromsgodset’s 2-1 win against Lillestrom at the weekend, which was about the time reports started circulating that the attacking midfielder fancied a move to Liverpool.

Despite being heavily linked with both Manchester United and Barcelona, the teenager is said to be an avid Reds fans and is hoping Rodgers makes a move.


With Victor Valdes seemingly crossed off the Reds’ shopping list another goalkeeper has been thrust into the spotlight in the former of Fiorentina’s Neto.

The 25-year-old is said to be seeking a move away from Serie A and could be seen as a viable alternative to Simon Mignolet in the Liverpool goal.

Ezequiel Lavezzi

This one should be taken with a sizeable pinch of salt, but PSG winger Lavezzi has been linked with a £30million January move to Anfield.

It is not the first time he has been linked with Liverpool but if the club do spend big in 2015 it is likely to be on an out-and-out quality front-man.

Ruben Neves

The FC Porto teenager has reportedly been watched three times by Liverpool already this season and Rodgers has been tipped to make a move.

He already has a whole host of exciting young talent at his disposal but that has not stopped the links with Neves, who is now a first-team regular for the Portuguese side despite being just 17.

Andre Ayew

The 24-year-old Ghanaian has been linked with either a cut-price January move or a switch for free next summer. Another player who is a regular in the rumour mill, given the price it would take to sign him this story could actually have legs.
