Liverpool could complete a transfer in the upcoming window with interest in RB Salzburg’s Noah Okafor reported.
This comes courtesy of a tweet from Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg with the Reds expected to pursue a midfielder in the January transfer window.
X News #Okafor: Transfer in winter is possible! No negotiations now but there’s is an interest from clubs like #MCFC, #LFC & AC Milan. Been told that United is not in. World Cup very important now. Price tag could be around €35-40m. Top season with Salzburg so far. @SkySportDE🇨🇭 pic.twitter.com/Lqx0xmznQ4

The Merseysiders may have to compete with the likes of English champions Manchester City and AC Milan for the forward’s signature.
For between £30.7-£35.1m, it’s a relative bargain for a highly-rated attacker on 12 goal contributions (10 goals and two assists) in 22 appearances (across all competitions).
Put simply, however, it’s not a position we’re in desperate need of reinforcing in the middle of the campaign, talented option or no.
Julian Ward and Co. have to prioritise a new midfielder, if an ideal addition is available for a reasonable price, in the upcoming window.
With Fabinho struggling for form in the first-half of the season, having another senior defensive midfielder in the squad to rotate the No.3 could prove invaluable should his struggles persist beyond the World Cup.
