With Jurgen Klopp’s need to improve his side’s league form, he will need to strengthen his team in the January transfer market. Liverpool supporters will be glad to read Florian Plettenburg of Sky Germany report that the Reds are targeting Fioretina’s Sofyan Amrabat after his standout performances in the World Cup for the Moroccan national team.

A plethora of injuries to Liverpool’s midfield players this season has served as a constant reminder of the lack of squad depth in that area of the pitch. Jurgen Klopp will undoubtedly seek reinforcements in the middle of the park if he is to guide Liverpool back toward the top of the league.

Primarily a defensive midfielder, Amrabat’s arrival would be welcome at the club, with Fabinho’s league form inconsistent this season. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita, and James Milner are all set to leave the club in the summer upon the expiration of their contracts, further increasing the need for a rebuild in midfield.
