It has been a long and tiring January for Liverpool. The Reds forked out £75m for Virgil van Dijk earlier this month before letting Philippe Coutinho live his dream by joining Barcelona.
While Daniel Sturridge has also departed Anfield for West Brom on a short loan-deal until the end of the season, there are no signs of any new arrivals despite us being linked with a number of players.
There have been calls by the entire fanbase for Coutinho to be replaced but our manager Jurgen Klopp has poured cold water, suggesting he is not interested in bringing a replacement now. Going by that fact, expect hardly any business to be done in terms of incomings at the club on the transfer deadline day.
But as far as the outgoings are concerned, there could be few players willing to leave our club – on a temporary basis or permanently.
But Klopp insists Danny Ings will not be leaving Liverpool, despite rumours linking him with a move away from Anfield.
“It would be funny if someone calls for Ingsy,” Klopp was quoted by the Mirror.
“I would love to respond! No chance. We will see what happens. There’s no chance Ingsy is on the market tomorrow. Only if I’m unconscious! But yeah, maybe something happens, that is possible. We will see.”
One player who could depart the club today is Lazar Markovic. The Serbian is a forgotten man at the Merseyside and the Daily Mail claims Swansea are keen on taking him until the end of the campaign with a view to making the deal permanent in the summer. Wolfsburg and Spartak Moscow have also shown concrete interest in the player.
Here’s how Liverpool fans are reacting on Twitter on the transfer deadline day.

Klopp to the interviewer, on getting asked if he will be involved in any deadline day deals, “Maybe…”
This can only mean one thing.

Riyad Mahrez is in the market. He will make us a stronger creative unit. And he can play Champions league as well. Offer £70M+ & snatch him from Man City. He is the best replacement for Coutinho in the market for us. Come on @LFC. Make a statement! #LFC
— SumWit (@Sumwitter) January 30, 2018
Someone send FSG and LFC representatives down to Leicester now and sign Riyad Mahrez.

Liverpool star charged by FA over possible betting misconduct
The alleged issue came up in January and the striker has claimed he has never gambled on the sport.
The report claims that the charges are related to the Englishman’s move from Liverpool to West Bromwich Albion in January. Footballers are prohibited from gambling on games or any other matters related to the sport.
The Guardian adds that this issue is to revolve around the disclosure of information as the charge relates to “information relating to football which the participant has obtained by virtue of his or her position within the game and which is not publicly available at that time”.
Sturridge has claimed his innocence and a statement released by the football club read (h/t Guardian):
“Daniel has given his full and unequivocal cooperation throughout this process and has assured the club he will continue to do so. Daniel has also stated categorically that he has never gambled on football.
“As with any issue of this nature, we will allow the process to be concluded in its entirety before making any further comment.”
The English striker faces charges under rule E8(1)(a)(ii) and Rule E8(1)(b), as per the report, and has until 20 November to enter a plea.
The former Chelsea striker had a horrible time at the Hawthorns on loan and saw West Brom getting relegated.
The 29-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season but has scored some vital goals for Liverpool in the current campaign.
Sturridge bagged a goal against Paris Saint-Germain in our Champions League opener and levelled the scores when Chelsea played the Reds in the Premier League with a superb strike.
Liverpool equal two more records after their impressive 2-0 win over Fulham
Liverpool don’t seem to be the same team from last season, despite boasting an unbeaten record in the Premier League.
The Reds beat Fulham 2-0 to make it 30 points from 12 games, and are just two behind Manchester City who lead the table.
Our attack hasn’t blitzed the opposition like last season, but the numbers suggest this has been an amazing start to the Premier League campaign.
Ian Doyle wrote for the Liverpool Echo about the latest game and claimed that we have matched our best points tally after 12 games.
Doyle further claimed that our goal difference of +18 was the best in terms of Premier League seasons.
Our attack might not be firing on all cylinders but our defence has been exceptional so far. Alisson kept yet another clean sheet on Sunday, and we also equalled the record for clean sheets from 1977-78 and 1978-79.
In fact, our defence has been the reason why we have done so well this season. We barely seem to concede and Virgil van Dijk has been an exceptional purchase, alongside Alisson.
The pair combined well to start an attack against the Cottagers on Sunday. Van Dijk signalled Alisson to take a free-kick early, and that resulted in Mohamed Salah opening the scoring for the Reds.
The Reds haven’t been that great in the Champions League, and we need to ensure our qualification into the next round.
Liverpool play Watford after the international break and take on Paris Saint-Germain away a few days later.
“I can’t believe it”, “Shocked” – Some Liverpool fans unsure about Mohamed Salah’s choice of T-shirt
The former Roma star is also one of the most recognisable faces in the world, and there have been murals, statues and paintings celebrating the success of the Liverpool attacker.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the player wants a bit of privacy and Salah tweeted an image of him travelling “incognito”.

The player wearing a Balaclava would not have been much of a problem, but many fans didn’t like his choice of shirt.
The Egyptian wore a “Project-Playboy” shirt and while we cannot say what his intentions were by sporting the shirt, some of the fans questioned his taste, while others some supported him.
