Gelson Martins is a name that most Liverpool fans would know about by now. The 22-year-old was one of the players linked with a move to Anfield in the summer and for a long time, it seemed like he would be the winger to play alongside Sadio Mane this season.

A deal was never finalised for the Sporting Lisbon player and his release clause of £53.5million also played a huge role in us not signing the Portuguese. We did get Mohamed Salah in the end and that has worked out for us just find.

However, a report by A Bola (h/t Read Liverpool) suggests that we are in for the winger once again and this deal could happen should one of our attackers move away.

The player in question is Daniel Sturridge, who has found it tough to break into the first-team at the Merseyside giants. The Englishman did start in the 1-1 draw against his former club Chelsea but his performance was not the best and it has been rumoured that Sturridge could move away and play regularly to make it to the England squad for the World Cup.

The former City man moving away would open the door for another attacker to join and Martins seems to be the man. The 22-year-old can play on either wing and would be a great fit for our front three.

Why Moving For Martins Does Not Make Sense

For all the quality the 22-year-old has, he does not seem to be the right player for us, especially given that we already have Salah and Mane flying down the wings.

We all are looking for either a quality forward who can do a better job than Roberto Firmino, or another midfielder or a central defender, who can take us to another level.

Martins does have some decent numbers to speak about this season, with 4 goals and 2 assists in 12 league games for Sporting but he is not the man we need now.

We need a defender as soon as possible and that could be the only big transfer regarding Liverpool in the winter window.

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.
