1 – Recruiting signatures in January?
Turning back history, Liverpool once brought back a series of bright contracts at Anfield in the winter transfer market. Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel, Maxi Rodriguez, Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho and Virgil van Dijk left a strong professional mark when wearing The Kop shirt.
Liverpool’s latest winter signature is Luis Diaz. The Colombian striker integrated quickly and proved valuable. The £50 million contract brings a new breeze to the home team.
The upcoming winter transfer window is the right time to help Jurgen Klopp strengthen his personnel in the second phase of the season. The question is who will be brought to Anfield?
Adding a quality central midfielder becomes an urgent requirement with the current Kop. Jude Bellingham, Moises Caicedo, Enzo Fernandez are 3 faces that have been regularly contacted to Liverpool in recent times.
2 – The pillars can regain form?
Injuries and illnesses are a nightmare for Liverpool this season. Since the victory over Man City in the English Super Cup, The Kop has faced a series of different injuries.
Naby Keita, Curtis Jones, Ibrahima Konate, Thiago Alcantara were sidelined, opening a serious personnel crisis.
Jordan Henderson, Andy Robertson, Joel Matip, Calvin Ramsay, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Luis Diaz, Arthur Melo, Diogo Jota give Klopp additional headaches.
Against that backdrop, Liverpool urgently appointed new doctor Jonathan Power. Fans expect that the pillars of The Kop can return in time in the second phase of the season.
3 – Who will partner with Virgil van Dijk?
Van Dijk is currently Liverpool’s No. 1 central defender, despite his erratic early-season performance. So, who will be Van Dijk’s best partner? Konate became a possible suggestion after a relatively impressive performance at the 2022 World Cup.
The speed, power, and positional ability where Konate provides a useful addition to the Liverpool defence. However, considering the experience factor; Joel Matip deserves Klopp’s consideration.
Finding the best pair of central defenders promises to become a launching pad to help Liverpool return to the familiar winning trajectory.
4 – Is the real Fabinho coming back?
The declining performance of the invisible Brazilian midfielder weakened the strength of the Liverpool midfield. When Fabinho was at his peak, he was seen as a top anchor in the fog.
The key role in the midfield makes Fabinho an important link in Liverpool’s tactical operation. Fans expect the best version of Fabinho to quickly return.
5 – Killer Nunez regain trust?
The Uruguayan striker contributed 7 goals in 10 matches before the 2022 World Cup kicks off. The erratic performance caused the former Benfica star to receive many criticisms and criticisms from fans and experts.
In the match against Man City in the last Carabao Cup, Nunez continued to leave a question mark when he missed at least 3 delicious opportunities in front of the opponent’s goal.
In the context of Jota and Diaz continue to sit out, Nunez needs to seize the opportunity, shoulder the main goalscorer next to Mohamed Salah. Klopp needs the student to regain his scoring instinct more than ever.
