January transfer windows are notorious for not having that many quality players available, but this is not the case for Liverpool who have seen some pure class come through on multiple occasions.

In the last couple alone we have seen the likes of Luis Suarez, Coutinho and Sturridge become Anfield favourites, but who are the next potential candidates?

One player in particular has been heavily linked with a move to the Reds for a good few seasons: Cristian Tello.

The 22-year-old Barcelona winger has seen his first team appearances not really materialise and seems to be wanting that to change. At first Brendan Rodgers wanted Tello on loan, although it's becoming increasingly likely he could make a permanent move from Camp Nou.

It seems more probable he could be making a move now than ever, with Arsenal also chasing his signature, although Liverpool remain favourites to land the Spanish international.

Staying on the same track with wingers, another incredibly likely purchase could be that of 21-year-old Egyptian international, Mohamed Salah.

He has also been linked with the Reds solidly for a good number of months. A very goal-threatening and lightning-fast player who boasts a very impressive 10 goals this season, including two against Chelsea, he is quite the talent and a promising youngster given his age.

It seemed Rodgers was set to sign him last week, this not happening as FC Basel are keen to get the price they want and keep him for the rest of the season.

Now moving on to two midfield players that have been linked with a move to Merseyside: Croatian international Ivan Rakitić and Turkish international Hakan Çalhanoğlu.

Rakitić has been heavily linked for some time now, being a typical through and through play-maker that the Reds need for depth when usual number 10 role Coutinho isn't playing or to play along side.

They have hit a bit of rocky waters on this one recently as it seems Sevilla are holding out for a high figure sum and Rakitić himself is undecided whether to leave. As for the young 19-year-old Çalhanoğlu he is only freshly in such high quality games for Hamburg.

Playing a very attacking role and already somewhat impressive goal-scoring, including a monster of a free-kick against Wolfsburg, he could prove another threat amongst the already lethal Suarez, Sturridge and company.

This seems the least likely out of all the transfers as he has said himself he is willing to discuss a contract extension with Hamburg and the fact he also said he would love to join Mancini back in his homeland with Galatasaray.

Seeing one of these rumours come true is not too far away as Rodgers has stated he is looking for another "Coutinho and Sturridge" in the January transfer window. One thing you can count on is Liverpool getting at least two quality signings this month, keep tuned.
