The January transfer window is just over a month away and there could be some activity at Anfield with both in-comings and outgoings. 

There are a handful of players at Anfield who could potentially leave both permanently and loan in search of more game time. Here are five players who could depart in the upcoming window. 

Dominic Solanke

Dominic Solanke had a dream summer. He scored four goals as England under-20s won the World Cup and had an excellent pre-season with his new club Liverpool. Since then he's not started a league game for Liverpool and is yet to score in the ten appearances he has made.

There's no question about his talent and he is biding his time but should the 20-year-old leave on loan and go on a scoring run, he could be in Gareth Southgate's mind for the World Cup. Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce has urged him to leave on loan in the Mirror which would probably benefit all three parties. Villa, Celtic and Swansea City are reportedly interested. 

Marko Grujic 

Jurgen Klopp's first ever signing as Liverpool manager has never really had the opportunity to break into the side. There's fierce competition in Liverpool's midfield and the Serbian has struggled to get game time. He played just 13 games for the Reds since August 2016 and his agent revealed in the Sun that he will probably leave on loan and that the 21-year-old also join another English club. 

Danny Ings 

Danny Ings has had a torrid time with long term injuries since he arrived at Anfield in 2015. He's back fit now but is struggling to even make the bench under Klopp.

He's been in good form for the under 23s. He scored four times in a 7-0 against Bristol City. A loan move will be the only way he'll be able to get regular first team football this season and go on a scoring run. Newcastle United, who were interested during the summer, are leading the chase according to the Daily Mail.

Lazar Markovic 

Lazar Markovic has become the forgotten man at Liverpool. He hasn't played a single minute this season and has had three loan spells in the last 18 months at Fenerbahce, Sporting Lisbon and Hull City respectively. Despite a fairly successful stint at Hull, it hasn't proved to be enough to get back into Klopps plan. A Turkish newspaper report he could be returning to Fenerbahce in the new year.

Ben Woodburn 

18-year-old Ben Woodburn is highly thought of at Liverpool. Three days after making his debut last season, he became Liverpool's youngest ever goalscorer when he netted against Leeds United in the Carabao Cup. He's only featured seven times since, just once this season and at this stage of his development, a loan move could be perfect.
