We’re edging closer to the January transfer window and Liverpool could be one of the most active Premier League clubs in the New Year - even if Jamie Carragher thinks otherwise.

In order to secure a top-four finish, Jurgen Klopp may need to bolster his squad with quality additions.

Similarly, the German coach - who has brought the feel-good factor back to Anfield since replacing Brendan Rodgers at the start of last month - will need to think about shifting the deadwood in his squad.

The Mirror have asked Liverpool fans which players they want to see stay and which players they want to leave the Merseyside outfit in the New Year.

The likes of Philippe Coutinho, Emre Can, Jordon Henderson, Mamadou Sakho and Jordon Ibe all safe, with over 95 per cent of fans voting for them to stay beyond January. But what about those players the fans want Klopp to sell?

Dejan Lovren

Percentage of fans who want him to stay: 44.9%

Dejan Lovren was signed for £20 million less than 18 months ago, but most Liverpool fans have already seen enough.

Big things were expected from the Croatia international following his big-money move from Southampton but the 26-year-old has flattered to deceive.

Divock Origi

Percentage of fans who want him to stay: 39.7%

Divock Origi has played for Liverpool eight times, but only 40 per cent of fans want him to stay at Anfield.

The Belgium international is still just 20 years old, however, and selling him at this early stage in his career could be a huge mistake.

Kolo Toure

Percentage of fans who want him to stay: 38.4%

Kolo Toure turns 35 in March and his best days are well behind him, it’s probably time for Liverpool to get rid.

One suspects the big reason 38.4 per cent of fans want him to stay is because of the ‘Kolo/Yaya/ chant.

Joe Allen

Percentage of fans who want him to stay: 25%

Three-quarters of Liverpool fans surveyed by the Mirror want Joe Allen gone - ouch.

The ‘Welsh Xavi’ - as some fans have labelled him in the past - has had a pretty rough time of it at Anfield.

Perhaps it’d be best for all concerned if he moved on in January.

Jose Enrique

Percentage of fans who want him to stay: 13.1%

Jurgen Klopp is reportedly prepared to give Jose Enrique another chance at Liverpool, but the majority of fans reckon that would be a mistake.

The Spanish left-back hasn’t played for the Reds since January and the fact Brad Smith has now been handed a new contract suggests the 29-year-old may have made his final appearance for his current employers.
