Liverpool are reportedly keeping an eye on three potential attacking targets in Jarrod Bowen, Arnaut Danjuma and Raphinha.
A winter window switch for the West Ham United (who has registered eights goals across all competitions) ace is said to be highly unlikely, with the Reds set to make do with their current options despite the temporary, AFCON-enforced departures of world-class duo Mo Salah and Sadio Mane, as reported by Football Insider.
The Merseysiders could be without their African contingent for the entire month of January, which will come as little comfort to Jurgen Klopp after his side struggled to make an impact against Arsenal’s low block in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final tie.

The need for some fresh blood in the forward line was, for many, best evidenced by a lacklustre performance against Mikel Arteta’s determined Gunners outfit.
Our concerns, we at the EOTK would argue, don’t just simply boil down to the forward line, however, that’s not to suggest that a new signing up top is unnecessary.
Klopp has certainly proven his credentials in taking players outside of the top four and turning them into world-beaters – a party trick he could replicate once more with Bowen if Julian Ward and co. identify the 25-year-old as a top target.

THERE IS NOT THE SLIGHTEST CHANCE OF BOWEN GOING TO LIVERPOOL NOW OR IN THE SUMMER.KEEP DREAMING. ALL SAID BY THAT ANOTHER PUNDIT NEEDING A PUBLICITY BOOST.YOU MUST THINK WEST HAM ARE STUOID. HIS VALUED AROUND 80 MILL ANYWAY.
LFC are delusional. They are a club in decline, West Ham are a club on the way up. Bowen has never expressed the slightest interest in going to Merseyside, nor have West Ham ever said they are willing to sell. Please go tap up somebody else.
