There are a few points during a Premier League season that has everyone talking. The start, the end and the player transfers. Player transfers, in particular, get everyone talking and speculating to the point it’s all the players have to hear about, and this year is no different. We’d go as far as to say the rumours are rifer than ever this year, especially with Liverpool. Every transfer window, Liverpool seem to find themselves at the centre of the conversation. 

Below, we will look at the transfer rumours currently flying around and whether Liverpool will actually make any of them.

The Strong Rumours

The season, in general, is always juicy at this team of the year – fans flock to SeatPick to get tickets and see the spectacles first-hand. But if we’re talking about transfer rumours and looking at the media storm that currently surrounds them, there are definitely some strong and weak rumours – and by that, we mean some of them are nothing more than rumours; some are transfers legitimately in the pipeline. 

One signing that has been in the pipeline for some time now is that of Ismaila Sarr, Watford’s shining star, who they sure won’t be ready to let go of, but when a big club like Liverpool comes knocking, you go running to them. 

The Sarr rumours have been here since the summer and have circled again now the window is drawing closer, but Liverpool are yet to comment whether they’re actually close to making a deal. According to rumours, despite no approach made as of yet, Liverpool are still ‘interested’ in the Watford star. 

A strong rumour is the signing of Erling Haaland – but if Liverpool wants him, they’re going to have to beat the majority of the major teams to it. The signing of manager Ralf Ragnick means Manchester United could be in with a shot of securing Haaland. According to the rumours, Borussia Dortmund — the team he currently plays for — are reportedly willing to accept a transfer fee in instalments. However, it is still a big rumour, just like the transfer of Jarrod Bowen is.

The Weak Rumours

One weak rumour is that of Raheem Stirling, who has apparently been in contact with Liverpool over a return to the club – but the sources are some suspect online media websites. Interestingly, however, Glen Johnson has neglected to rule out a Raheem Stirling move to Liverpool, and considering he’s not having the best season at Manchester City, it could well be on the cards.

According to reports from a media company in Spain, Liverpool also have their eyes on Christian Pulisic – the Chelsea forward who has been performing really well. However, he apparently comes with a huge price tag that Liverpool are debating whether to pay and whether it would be worth it. He’s a cracking player who would make for an excellent signing if they do.

What’s Likely To Happen?

In all reality, none of us knows what’s about to happen until it happens, and that’s the beauty of the transfer windows. Rumours fly, and people place their bets on the players they think will move, and it almost always ends up being different. However, the rumour mill is definitely working hard this window, and it’ll be interesting to see which players end up when at the end of the season, or indeed, at the end of January.

It doesn’t get much more exciting than the transfer window, and it’s creeping closer every day. By the end of January, we should know what players teams have invested their money in and how the rest of the season will play out. One thing is for sure, if all the Liverpool transfer rumours are true, they’ll sign the entire premier league and international players by the end of January.
