Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has tried everything he could to get his fellow countryman Emre Can commit his future to Anfield. Klopp understands that Can has the right attributes to be a hit with the Kop faithful – if he is not already.

But, the German midfielder has rejected all the advances made by Liverpool and has not signed an extension so far. It looks highly unlikely that he would sign one from now until next summer, which is when he is expected to leave on a free transfer.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Can makes a move in the January transfer window itself and signs a pre-contract agreement with some foreign team. That leaves Klopp with finding a replacement for the midfielder.

Latest reports Italian outlet Tuttosport (h/t Turkish-football) indicate that Liverpool have set their sights on Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as a replacement for Can. Klopp apparently sees the 22-year-old Serbian as an ideal replacement for Can, who seems set to join Juventus. Interestingly, Milinkovic-Savic is also eyed by Juventus and it would be interesting to see how the tussle goes.

There is interest from other clubs too, as the two Manchester sides – United and City – are reportedly keen on making a move. Lazio, however, see him as a valuable member of their squad and have slapped a tag of £62.3million on their midfielder.

Despite the huge transfer fee, the Italian press feels that Liverpool are leading the pack for his signature and that Klopp wants to pair him with Naby Keita, who is set to join the club next summer.

How good is the youngster? Milinkovic-Savic is well-known for his energetic displays in the midfield. He has already got off to a flying start in Serie A this year and has scored 4 goals and 4 assists.

How feasible is the transfer? Milinkovic-Savic’s agent and former Chelsea forward Mateja Kezman has indicated that his client is “unsellable” at Lazio but that may change if we bid for the player.

I think the Serbian is an exciting prospect and although it is a punt to go for his as-yet-untested-at-the-highest-level potential, it is worth taking a risk.

Harry Wilson

Wales defeated the Republic of Ireland in a UEFA Nations League game and they have Harry Wilson to thank.

The Liverpool youngster stepped up to score a brilliant free-kick for the away side in the 58th minute.

The 21-year-old was in the news earlier in the season when he smashed in a free-kick at Old Trafford. Manchester United were the opposition for Derby County on that evening and the Welshman’s goal helped the Championship side knock the Red Devils out of the Carabao Cup.

The 21-year-old is on loan at Derby and is one of the brightest youngsters at Anfield. The Welshman certainly got a lot of people talking with his effort against the Republic of Ireland and some fans believed the attacking midfielder has a great future ahead of him.

Alberto Moreno

Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno has just one start to his name this season and that came in the 2-1 loss against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup at Anfield.

The game will be remembered for an Eden Hazard wonder goal, where the Spaniard was taken to the cleaners by the Belgian.

Moreno has found it tough to reclaim his starting spot in the Liverpool team, with Andy Robertson putting in a number of great performances. The newly appointed Scottish captain is possibly the best left-back in the league and was with the national side during the international break.

The Spaniard was training with the other members of the squad at Melwood and a brilliant video of his was shared. Moreno can be seen doing a couple of quality flicks during training and that got a number of fans interested.

The left-back has been linked (h/t Mirror) with a move to Barcelona in the winter window, and some fans believed this video was a ploy to increase his value ahead of a possible sale.
