Emerson Palmieri

Liverpool are set to strengthen their defence with a move for a rising Brazilian star but before we start thinking that a quality centre-back is coming into Anfield, we seem to be in the running for Emerson Palmieri of AS Roma, who is a left-back.

Now we all remember that Andrew Robertson was signed at the start of the season but the former Hull City player has not seen a lot of playing time and more often than not, it has been the revitalised Alberto Moreno who has been galloping down the left and helping the attack.

The Spaniard has been great for us this season but it seems like Jurgen Klopp wants to add more firepower to our left-back slot and is ready to make a move for the 23-year-old Brazilian.

A report on Corriere dello Sport (h/t Football Talk) claims that we have already held talks for signing the 23-year-old. The player does have a few injury issues and is yet to play a game for the Serie A giants this season.

The 23-year-old might be one of the rising stars in Brazilian football but his injury record seems to have had an impact on his release clause, with the report suggesting that we might be looking to pay less than £22million to sign the man.

However, this report does seem to be a little out of place given that Robertson has received somewhat of a backing from Klopp in recent weeks and there is no doubt that the Scot will get a few games under his belt during the tough winter period.

Klopp will have to rotate his side around to keep them fresh, something we saw in the line-up against Stoke City in midweek.

Moreno might be playing more than Robertson and even though they aren’t the best in the world, we doubt if Palmieri can be the player to solve our defensive issues or even be an upgrade on our current pair.

This seems to be another random rumour coming out from Italy and unless Palmieri plays and comes back to regular first-team football, there is no chance he would be making a move to Liverpool.

Daniel Sturridge Liverpool

Daniel Sturridge had a great September for Liverpool. Even though the Reds were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Chelsea and lost to Napoli in the Champions League, Sturridge scored a couple of fantastic goals against his former employers.

His strike against the Blues at Stamford Bridge will be remembered for long. Liverpool looked to be out of the game but the Englishman came up with a majestic hit from outside the box in the final moments of the game.

The 29-year-old hasn’t started many games but is doing a great job off the bench. Sturridge was named as Liverpool’s player of the month for his performances in September.

The Englishman will have a huge role to play for us as the season progresses and several fans were pleased that the striker got his reward for some excellent games.

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.
