Three Liverpool players who should force a January loan exit

With the January transfer window fast approaching, there are several Liverpool players that need to be eyeing a move away from the club.

The fringe players will be eager to test themselves away from Anfield – whether that be on loan or permanently.

Here are three players who should ask to be loaned out in the January window.

With Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah, Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi all able to play as a centre-forward, it makes sense for Liverpool to send Solanke out on loan.

The 21-year-old has not featured for Liverpool’s first-team at all this season.

But his performances at youth level for club and country could earn the England under-21 international a loan move.

Sky Sports News claim that Solanke has Premier League suitors, with Huddersfield Town, Crystal Palace and West Ham all interested in taking him on loan.

Virtue-Thick has all the attributes to become a first-team star in central midfield.

But he needs more first-team game time, having only tasted senior football with League Two side Notts County last season.

The 21-year-old is comfortable in youth football but needs to step out of his comfort zone if he is to make the step up.

Virtue-Thick will be 22 by the time next season starts and a January loan move could make or break his Liverpool career.

Clyne was yet to play a minute of competitive football this season until the Manchester United clash and seems to have lost his place to Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back.

With Joe Gomez also able to play there, Clyne needs a move away in January to reignite his stalling career.

The 27-year-old will not be short of suitors this January with Neil Warnock recently confirming that Cardiff would be targeting him, the BBC reports.

And if he performs well on loan, the former England international could either save his Liverpool career or earn a move in the summer.
