Liverpool Winter Transfer News: Tracking Latest Rumors and Updates

0 of 7

    Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers eluded to the fact that despite the club not setting up to make many moves this January, they will certainly be looking to increase their attacking options.

    In the post-match press conference that aired on following the Reds' demolition of Wigan Athletic the Merseyside boss was more than happy with his team but knows that they need extra support for high-flying Luis Suarez:

    The reality is that there was always going to be a bit of movement this season with the club trying to regain some of their money.

    This season was always going to be difficult. We'll look to do something in the January transfer window, though. There's not going to be wholesale changes in terms of players coming in, that's the reality of where the club is at.

    We're looking to grow over the next six months, we'll get some reinforcements in January and that will support the group who has been magnificent for me so far. Hopefully in the summer we can build again.

    The Reds have been linked all over the media to new signings, but the closer the window gets, the more important those links and decisions will be. Stay tuned to Bleacher Report's World Football page to keep you up to speed.

Xabi Alonso

    Liverpool's midfield has still never truly recovered from the loss of Spanish fan favorite Xabi Alonso.

    However, the player's contract talks with Real Madrid at the moment have been hitting the rocks, and it has seen the player, who still has a massive love of Liverpool, questioning his future.

    According to the Mirror, if his contract extension talks fail, Alonso will likely head back to the EPL and a return to Anfield could possibly be in the equation although there is no official link between the player and a return to Merseyside just yet.

Fernando Torres

    It is a long stretch, but Fernando Torres could once again be linked with a Liverpool return after his pouring out of affection on former teammate Steven Gerrard for his friendship and mentoring in his early days of EPL life.

    The Liverpool Echo also quoted Torres in discussion of his debt that he owes Liverpool. The club could use the old Torres to bang in some goals, and Brendan Rodgers might actually be a guy who could bring Torres back to life.

Jeffren Suarez

    According to reports from TalkSPORT, Sporting Lisbon's young attacking sensation Jeffren Suarez is the latest young attacker to catch the eye of Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers.

    It is believed that the 24-year-old Spanish U21 international has been heavily scouted by Liverpool for the past few months and is thought to be an excellent second Suarez to add to their first team.

Lacina Traore

    Liverpool continue their links to young forwards with the Mirror claiming that the Reds are now interested in 20-year-old Anzhi Makhachkala striker Lacina Traore.

    Traore scored the lone goal to see the Russians defeat Liverpool in Moscow two weeks ago during their UEFA Europa League match.

Theo Walcott

5 of 7

    The latest news on Theo Walcott and his lengthy link to Liverpool now has him headed to Merseyside, but as part of a player-plus-cash deal to attempt to lure young England winger Raheem Sterling to the Emirates.

    According to The Sun, Arsenal are set to put Walcott plus an additional £8 million towards the 17-year-old who only has 18 months left on his contract with the Reds.

Wilfried Bony

6 of 7

    According to Yahoo EuroSport, Liverpool are preparing to make an offer to Dutch Eredivisie side Vitesse for the services of 23-year-old attacker Wilfried Bony.

    Bony is the current leading scoring in the Dutch league with 12 goals so far this season.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar

7 of 7

    Liverpool lastly maintained their strong connection in the press to Schalke 04 striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar this week. According to the Mirror, the Reds are still considering bringing him to the club in January, but not just because of his strong strike rate in the Bundesliga from the past campaign.

    Huntelaar was once a time ago the partner of Luis Suarez, and the two wreaked havoc on opposing defenses during their time together at Ajax Amsterdam. A reunion could potentially bring the best out of both, even more so than Suarez is currently showing.
