Liverpool is set to win their first-ever Premier League title this season. The Reds sit a staggering 18 points clear at the top of the table, with all their rivals seemingly uninterested in the title race. Although they are the best team in Europe, Liverpool still has several areas in the squad that could be improved.
Their first XI is exceptional, however, their squad depth does not live up to that same standard. January offers the Reds the chance to ensure they have enough squad depth for the title race, in case one of their star players get injured.
Here are three surprise signings Liverpool could make this window.
Despite being rooted to the bottom of the table, most neutrals have thoroughly enjoyed watching Norwich City this season. The Canaries have been daring in their approach, with Daniel Farke refusing to ‘park the bus’ in any of their matches so far.
Instead, the German wants to attack and press from the start, with Todd Cantwell being the centrepiece of that approach. The English youngster has stolen all plaudits alongside Teemu Pukki for Norwich’s entertaining attacking football.
The 21-year-old has directly contributed to 8 PL goals in 1457 minutes this season. Many have compared the attacking midfielder to a young Frank Lampard in reference to his late runs into the box from deep. Cantwell’s movement has been exceptional, proving that he is PL quality.
Klopp’s current Liverpool team is made up of an expansive front three, robust midfield and competent defence. Cantwell’s attributes would be perfect for a Liverpool midfield that relies mainly on work rate, movement and quick passing to the front three.
