Liverpool currently sit 6th in the Premier League, a whopping 14 points behind the leaders Manchester City. They’ve been branded as potential contenders, but the fact is, City are running away with the league and if Liverpool doesn’t make alterations to the squad in January, they’ll fall further behind. Alongside new signings, there are players the Reds should sell in the winter window to ensure their squad is in its best position to compete.
Here are 3 players Liverpool should offload in January.
The 24-year-old has only made 1 appearance for Liverpool this season as his Reds career continues to spiral downwards. Once touted as one of England’s brightest young prospects, Jon Flanagan simply hasn’t progressed like we thought he would. His one appearance this campaign was in Liverpool’s disappointing 2-0 defeat to Leicester in the Carabao Cup.
Right now, there’s no place for the right-back in the team. Even with Nathaniel Clyne in the physio room, Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold are now the backup right-backs. Jon Flanagan will play no relevant part in the rest of Liverpool’s season and the quicker he’s offloaded in January, the better.
