Liverpool have a busy January transfer window ahead of them, with fans crying out for some investment.

The Reds have struggled with injuries so far this season, with Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez both set to miss the majority of the season.

The Premier League champions have struggled with the congested fixture schedule, and have been tipped to bring in a new centre-back in the winter window.

But in order to start spending, they might have to offload a few players to make room.

Who should Jurgen Klopp and Michael Edwards look to sell? Daily Star Sport has the run-down of who Liverpool should get rid of and who they should keep.

Goalkeepers

Alisson Becker : Liverpool should reject any bids that come in for Alisson Becker for the next few years at least. KEEP

Adrian : It might be worth getting rid for Liverpool. Adrian clearly isn’t good enough, hence the game time for Caoimhin Kelleher. If the right offer comes in then they should offload him. SELL

Caoimhin Kelleher : A valuable number two to Alisson Becker, and given his age he should definitely stay for quite some time. KEEP

Defenders

Virgil van Dijk : Much like with Alisson, Liverpool should never accept any bids for Virgil van Dijk and should instead be trying to get him to sign a new long-term contract. KEEP

Joe Gomez : Should also be given a new contract. KEEP

Kostas Tsimikas : Only just arrived and needs to be given time despite his struggles with injury/illness in his first few months at the club. KEEP

Andy Robertson : Probably the best left-back in the world. Under contract until 2025. KEEP

Joel Matip : Considering Liverpool’s injury woes, there’s no chance they should even consider selling Matip. KEEP

Rhys Williams : Likewise with Matip, it would be worth keeping Williams around – especially if they don’t sign anyone in January. KEEP

Nat Phillips : If Liverpool do sign a new centre-back then it might be potentially worth getting Phillips out on loan, if he has another few starts before January then his stock will be higher than ever. SELL

Trent Alexander-Arnold : Potentially the best right-back in the world, under contract until 2024 and it might be worth extending his current deal. KEEP

Sepp van den Berg : Would probably benefit from some game time elsewhere. LOAN BUT KEEP

Neco Williams : Looks like he has a lot of potential, definitely worth keeping him around. KEEP

Midfielders

Fabinho : Fabinho is incredibly valuable to the team, considering his ability to play in midfield or defence. KEEP

Georginio Wijnaldum : It doesn’t look like Georginio Wijnaldum will sign a new contract. Liverpool need to get a gauge of that as early as possible to avoid losing him for free. SELL

Thiago Alcantara : Only just arrived but he’s struggled so far due to injury and fitness issues. KEEP

James Milner : A veteran in the dressing room, it would definitely be worth keeping him around. KEEP

Naby Keita : Still hasn’t hit the ground running after joining the club in 2018, but given time he’ll prove his worth to the side. KEEP

Jordan Henderson : Club captain, serial trophy-lifter, no point in Liverpool even considering getting rid. KEEP

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain : If the right offer comes in it might be worth offloading him and using his wages to make one last hail-mary bid to keep Wijnaldum. SELL

Curtis Jones : It wouldn’t make any sense for Liverpool to sell Curtis Jones, he’s showing a lot of promise at the moment. KEEP

Xherdan Shaqiri : Many thought he’d be on his way in the last summer transfer window, but somehow he stayed put. Might be worth him now being on his way, however, as game time looks limited. SELL

Attackers

Roberto Firmino : Has incredible value to the team, despite the arrival of Diogo Jota. KEEP

Sadio Mane : One of the best attackers in the world, Sadio Mane has been linked with Real Madrid in the past but they shouldn’t even consider selling, unless a certain Kylian Mbappe becomes available… KEEP

Mohamed Salah : Much like with Mane, it would only be viable to sell Mohamed Salah if they have a move for Mbappe lined up. KEEP

Takumi Minamino : It doesn’t seem like Takumi Minamino is quite good enough for Liverpool, and it might be worth offloading him. Maybe a loan for six months will help him regain some confidence. LOAN BUT KEEP

Diogo Jota : He’s been a revelation since joining the club in the summer. KEEP

Divock Origi : He might be a cult icon at Anfield, but it’s time for Liverpool to get rid. SELL
