Liverpool are looking like title challengers again this season, especially after the hotly contested 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium.

The January transfer window is a little over one month away.

The Reds could look to do some business in an attempt to strengthen the squad if Jurgen Klopp finds his side in a legitimate title charge.

The German has done winter business in the previous two seasons, so a January signing in 2024 is not out of the equation.

A report from 90min previously detailed how Liverpool is ‘interested in pursuing Luiz’ providing that the midfielder ‘chooses to leave Villa.’

This season, he has been one of Unai Emery’s most important players, and Villa’s recent success has been mostly attributed to his play.

Luiz has participated in 20 games overall and scored nine goals in that time.

Many believe that the Reds could still use an extra body in midfield, with Fluminense’s Andre amongst those frequently mentioned.

Nonetheless, TeamTalk have revealed just how much Douglas Luiz would cost the Anfield club should Jurgen Klopp make a move for the Brazilian.

It is believed the Aston Villa are looking for a fee upwards of £80m, which seems very steep for the 25-year-old midfielder.

Considering all of Liverpool’s incoming midfielders each cost less than that figure – it would be hard to see LFC submit to Aston Villa’s demands.

Manager Unai Emery reaffirmed his intent to keep Douglas Luiz after his side’s victory over Aston Villa this past weekend, saying:

“He’s playing very good. He’s improved a lot, his commitment is amazing.”

“I am very happy with him and I want to keep him of course. I think he’s happy with us.”

“He’s coming on with his national team. And his performance like today was amazing. I want him.”
