January Transfer Window: 7 Players Who Could Turn Liverpool into a Champion
Liverpool FC have proven themselves to have developed a defensive solidity in recent weeks, and this is always the perfect starting point for building a successful team.
Obviously, the woodwork has been struck on numerous occasions and draws have been the order of the day, so which players should Liverpool be looking at to turn these draws into three points, and in doing so would propel them up the EPL table quickly?
I think if Liverpool were able to attract any two of the following players, then they could very, very quickly cause a real headache for the Manchester clubs.
Lightning quick, can Sevilla turn down big money?

One of the three Spanish starlets, the other two being David Silva and Juan Mata, it is surprising that Navas has still yet to be courted by another club.
His speed is remarkable, and the only comparison I can make is that of Theo Walcott, but with twice the ability on the ball.
He is capable of beating any defender from a starting position, and his crossing accuracy is exceptional.

On his day, there is no better finisher.
He has all the assets to succeed in the EPL: He is strong and quick, good in the air and has the knack for knowing which way the ball will bounce.
Not his best season for Sevilla this year, but that makes him all the more interesting, and perhaps it makes Sevilla all the more willing to listen to offers.

One of the smallest players in the EPL, if not the smallest, but this season has shown that he can thrive at a higher level.
He would be a cheaper alternative to many other winger options in Europe, and his work ethic has been fantastic this season—he is definitely will not suffer from stage fright in a red shirt.

He is never likely to leave Arsenal, but now is the time to ask.
I expect some people never thought Wayne Rooney would look beyond his boyhood team Everton, but £30 million later and look where he ended up.
Wilshere is destined to be one of the most complete midfielders to come out of this country, right up there with Gerrard.
His vision, technique and tenacity make him stand out, but it's his discipline and intelligence on the pitch that make him a massive target for top teams.

Will he ever get his chance at Real Madrid?
I very much doubt it.
He has shown in glimpses that he was no flash in the pan. He can play as the forward or just behind, plus he is capable of making space and working in tandem with someone like Suarez or Negredo, forging a brilliant partnership.
Again, he could be a cheaper option for Liverpool and may be a player who fancies a challenge to prove himself abroad.

He is capable of being anything he wants, such as one of the most fearsome attackers in Europe.
He has yet to be fully appreciated by the wider press, but by then it would be too late and his price would soar into silly figures.
He could be the next Aguero—he could even already be as good as Aguero—but he can also play out wide.
Stocky and quick, he is built for EPL action.
How much longer will he resist the EPL?
Still one of the very, very best strikers on the planet, and it's only a matter of time before he calls it a day at Anzhi.
His wages are currently astronomical, but it depends on his pedigree and if he wants a final, big goodbye with European football.
My feeling is that he does.
