Liverpool brought in Thiago and Diogo Jota at the end of last week, but from now until the end of the season, it’s all about the outgoings.
A number of current Reds are surplus to requirements – such as Harry Wilson, Marko Grujic, Xherdan Shaqiri, Loris Karius, Nat Philipps and potentially Rhian Brewster…
The former is a big target for Burnley, says James Pearce, and Sean Dyche’s outfit are in talks with us over the deal.

Burnley are a great fit for Wilson, because the Welshman absolutely thrives from deadball situations. In fact, it defines him as a player – and whipping in top-quality left-footed freekicks and corners would suit Burnley perfectly.
We’re not sure what we’ll be able to get for him, but if Ki-Jana Hoever earned us £10m, it’ll be more than that.
Rhian Brewster is the most valuable of the potentially for-sale, but Grujic and Shaqiri are good players who’ll definitely suit a top-flight club somewhere in Europe.
Michael Edwards will go some way in balancing the chequebook before the window closes – that’s for sure.
