Liverpool could yet be involved in some business on the final day for transfers.
The Reds have been tipped to move for the likes of Paris Saint-Germain’s Adrien Rabiot (Paris United) and Sandro Tonali (before the 11pm deadline.
The Reds are yet to bring anyone in this window, despite having had to contend with a spate of injuries – particular in defence.
Despite a shock exit from the FA Cup and a defeat to Manchester City in the Premier League, Liverpool have been looking strong with the players they started the season with.
The club were recently linked with a move for Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi (BILD) and perhaps last night’s development should see them try to prise him away from the Blues.
Hudson-Odoi could be Liverpool’s Sterling
The English youngster was inexplicably left out of the matchday squad to face Bournemouth by Maurizio Sarri on Wednesday.
The move baffled supporters, many of whom were hoping to see him build on the goal he scored against Sheffield Wednesday last weekend.
Although he appears set to remain with Chelsea this window despite reportedly handing in a transfer quest (BBC Sport), Liverpool should be thinking about moving for him either now or in the summer – as he could become the player they hoped Raheem Sterling would at Anfield.
Sterling left the club in 2015 to join Manchester City aged just 20.
The majority of supporters were angry over his departure, but many were also extremely disappointed not to see him fulfill his vast potential at their club.
Hudson-Odoi, another bright young English talent, could be the man to perhaps replace Sterling – they’ll seemingly have competition from Bayern Munich though who have already bid several times for him (Goal).
