The top five players linked with signing for Liverpool this week

Liverpool have been linked with some great players this week including two from Premier League rivals.

Liverpool’s summer signings have been taking a lot of pressure this week following the side’s exit from the Champions League at the hands of FC Basel.

Brendan Rodgers may have one eye on the January transfer market as he considers some winter additions which could potentially revitalise his team over the second half of the season.

Here are five of the best players linked with signing for Liverpool this week.

Marco Reus (Borussia Dortmund)

Liverpool are one of the sides linked with the German this week as Borussia Dortmund reportedly prepare for his departure.

Christoph Kramer (Bayer Leverkusen)

Liverpool are one of the teams thought to be interested in the German World Cup winner although there are reports suggesting he’ll sign a new deal with the Bundesliga side.

Martin Montoya (Barcelona)

Montoya has reportedly asked to leave Barcelona and Liverpool have previously been strongly linked with him. Whether they need another right-back is debatable.

Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham Hotspur)

The Belgian defender would be a top quality addition to Liverpool but his Champions League aspirations may now put him off of a move.

Winston Reid (West Ham United)

The Reds will have to pay £20 million to get their hands on Reid, with the Hammers reportedly looking to put sides off of going after him.
