No sooner has the summer transfer window closed, attention turns to January. The Reds’ squad is already at a very high level, but improvements can always be made.
With three competitions still available for winning, additional signings midway through the season could be the final pieces in the puzzle that drag the team over the line.
With that in mind, here are seven players that could be bought on the cheap in January since they go out of contract next summer.
Alternatively, or perhaps more likely, all seven of these players will be available to freely approach from the first day of 2019 and secure on a Bosman in time for next term.
James Milner is a famous example of a fantastic freebie, while Jurgen Klopp also secured Joel Matip on a Bosman from Schalke.
Which of these would you take on a free, Reds?
The PSG man was linked with the Reds a couple of weeks ago, and turned out at Anfield against us for his current team last week when he played the full game.
A reported LFC fan, Rabiot would add even more depth to the midfield and can operate as a number six or a number eight.
New Champions League rules also mean that he could sign for us in January and still be available for the knock-out stages, making him even more appealing.
Just like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, it feels very much like Ramsey is wasting his talent at Arsenal; under Jurgen Klopp, he could thrive.
The Mirror are reporting that he will not be signing a new contract and looks certain to leave the Gunners.
A slightly more advanced midfielder than Rabiot, Ramsey would come with the additional benefit of weakening a team around the Reds as well as strengthening our own ranks.
The Welshman has an eye for goal and is the perfect athlete for a Klopp team; he would slot straight into the side when called upon.
At 29, the Belgian defender would not be a typical signing, but would certainly add depth at the back.
Joel Matip has looked shaky at times while Dejan Lovren picks up injuries; the only issue would be a potential stifling of the growth of Joe Gomez, which cannot be allowed to happen under any circumstances.
If the Spurs man was to come in, it would be a huge coup, again weakening a rival and showing the rest of the Premier League that we mean business.
Despite bringing in Xherdan Shaqiri, the Reds might be one player light in wide areas when it comes to strength in depth.
Signing the Algerian, who has been a reported target for the club in the past under Klopp, would make perfect sense as a cheap squad player able to deputise for the front three.
Sadio Mane could perhaps have done with a game off this week, for example, but with limited wide options, he had to play. Signing Brahimi would just add another layer of cover and another potential game-changing option from the bench – what a luxury to have.
Another PSG star, the goalkeeper was beaten three times by the Reds last week, but is still a top stopper.
With Simon Mignolet wanting to move on, bringing in Areola from the Parisians would be ideal, especially on a free transfer.
Whether he would accept the challenge of being number two to Alisson would be a potential sticking point, but it’s got to be worth a go.
He is comfortable with his feet and an adept goalkeeper, but he might take some convincing.
The former Spanish prodigy has stuck with Athletic Bilbao, his home club, for the whole his whole career so far, but has limited himself by doing so.
Capable of playing as part of the front three or in midfield, Muniain could come in and develop under Klopp.
Still only 25, his dribbling and vision would fit perfectly with our style, and he would arrive on fairly low wages. The Spaniard has the talent to become a real top player, but needs the help of a top coach to unleash his potential.
Reds fans were certainly not impressed with Alberto Moreno last night, and if it is time to move him on sometime soon, the Atletico Madrid full-back could be a decent acquisition.
Steady and experienced, he would be able to deputise for Andy Robertson when necessary and help the Scot push himself even further on.
The Brazilian would be right at home with Alisson and Roberto Firmino for company – it might be time for the two Brazilians to have a word with their compatriot.
