Liverpool Transfer Talk: 5 Players Who Could Be out of Anfield in January
Kenny Dalglish's era of spending has left some squad members at Anfield obsolete.
Players like Jose Enrique, Stewart Downing and Luis Suarez have been staples of the Liverpool starting XI so far this year.
With so many new additions becoming permanent fixtures of Dalglish's team sheet, there are a number of players who may be on their way out in January.
The following is a list of five players that may be heading for the exit of Anfield when the January transfer window opens.
Fabio Aurelio has not appeared in a Premier League game for Liverpool since the club's away defeat to Aston Villa in May of last year.
The Brazilian left-back made the move to Anfield in 2006. At the age of 32, it is difficult to see heavy involvement from Aurelio in the future.
With an abundance of left-backs currently at the club, including summer signing Jose Enrique, Aurelio may very well seek out a move to a side in which he can play regular first team football.
Jack Robinson: Loan
We've seen it before with players like Jack Wilshere and Daniel Sturridge. A January loan can help bring young talent the experience that they need.
Jack Robinson is a player that has shown a lot of potential. The English left-back is known for his ability to attack down the flank and produce quality in the final third.
The 18-year-old Englishman has failed to break into the Liverpool first team so far under Kenny Dalglish.
A January loan spell may be just what the young defender needs to help establish himself at Anfield.
Glen Johnson has featured just once for Liverpool this season. Injuries have kept the talented right-back off the pitch.
In his absence, Martin Kelly has looked fantastic, and questions about Johnson's future may start to come up.
With a suitable replacement in Kelly, Johnson is a valuable player that could be sold to a side in the market for a right-back.
Johnson would be a multimillion pound transfer, and it would bring in a nice amount of spending money for Kenny Dalglish and Liverpool.
Jay Spearing: Loan
Jay Spearing is on the edge of the Liverpool's first team. Should the midfielder secure a loan away from Anfield for January, he may be featuring for Kenny Dalglish in next season's opening match.
With such strength in Liverpool's midfield after a number of summer signings, Spearing has been a relatively unused substitute this season.
Should he secure a loan move in January, Spearing would improve with first team football. It would not be a surprise to see him in contention for a regular spot in next season's Liverpool side.
Maxi Rodriguez has made just one appearance for the Reds in the Premier League this season.
The Argentinian winger does not seem to be a part of Kenny Dalglish's plans, and the 30-year-old will be hoping to make a move to a club that will offer him first team football.
Rodriguez has showed signs of brilliance, most notably in the 2007-2008 season, in which he helped Atletico Madrid secure a fourth place finish in La Liga.
The Argentinean offers experience and class, so there would be plenty of teams interested in securing Rodriguez's services.
