Five Liverpool players who could leave the club in January

Jurgen Klopp will look back on his transfer business in the summer with a smile on his face.

Mohamed Salah has proven to be a brilliant acquisition, the Egyptian making his £34.3 million price tag look cheap by scoring 12 goals in all competitions so far.

Dominic Solanke comes with great potential while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is beginning to get more minutes and scored his first league goal for the club in Saturday’s 4-1 win over West Ham.

Liverpool fans are still wondering why a centre-back wasn’t signed but Klopp has certainly enhanced an already impressive attack.

The January window could bring about some headaches for the Reds, however, with Barcelona reportedly set to renew their interest in Philippe Coutinho.

The Blaugrana made three bids for Coutinho in the summer, all of which were rejected.

Yet the Brazilian’s decision to hand in a transfer request indicates he’s ready to push harder to secure a move to the Camp Nou the next time Barcelona come calling.

Coutinho isn’t on the Mirror’s list of Liverpool players who could depart in January. Instead, they’ve picked out five players who appear pretty far from the first team and could do with moves away from Merseyside.

Danny Ings

Ings scored four goals against Bristol City’s Under-23 side at the weekend but Klopp probably won’t take too much stock in that.

Injuries have plagued Ings’ Liverpool career and, with Liverpool’s current crop of forwards all shining, opportunities will always be hard to come by.

Harry Wilson

Wilson has been mightily impressive for Liverpool’s U23s and the next step in his development could be a loan move, either to a Premier League club in need of a winger or abroad.


Lazar Markovic

Quite what Markovic is still doing at Liverpool is a mystery.

Forget first team action, the 24-year-old doesn’t even play for the U23s these days.

The fact that no clubs were interested in Markovic in the summer is a concern but the surely must soon realise that he has no future at Anfield?

Jon Flanagan

Liverpool fans would hate to see the academy graduate leave but Klopp has better options elsewhere.

Joe Gomez, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Nathaniel Clyne are ahead of him at right-back; Alberto Moreno and Andy Robertson the same on the left.

Ovie Ejaria

Neil Critchley, the manager of Liverpool’s U23s, recently said Ejaria could be among the youngsters to leave on loan in January.

Klopp is a fan of the midfielder - handing him eight first team matches last season - but Ejaria is yet to crack the first team squad this campaign.

A loan move would be beneficial for the 19-year-old’s development.
