Transfer Rumours:

Kylian Mbappe:  The French superstar is reportedly close to agreeing a deal with Liverpool, after rejecting a new contract offer from Paris Saint-Germain. However, Real Madrid are still in the race for Mbappe, who has a release clause of €200 million

Fabio Carvalho: The young midfielder, who joined Lille on loan from Liverpool in the summer, has struggled to get regular game time in the Bundesliga. Liverpool are reportedly in talks with Lille regarding the potential return of Carvalho, who could add some depth to the squad.

Injury Updates:

Szoboszlai, Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, and More: Liverpool have had their share of injuries over the last few weeks due to the exhausting schedule in the winter period. The Reds are currently enjoying a short winter break before getting back into action against Bournemouth in the Premier League on January 21. Here are the latest injury updates on the unavailable players and when they could return to action.

Dominik Szoboszlai: The Hungarian midfielder picked up an injury in the first game of 2024, but is back running on the pitch again. Liverpool will not rush his return and risk further issues, but Szoboszlai should return soon after the break. Potential return date: vs Fulham (January 24)

Andy Robertson: The Scottish left-back has been making good progress on his recovery from a shoulder injury and Pep Ljinders recently hinted that the club will assess his situation before getting him back to action. Potential return date: End of January

Trent Alexander-Arnold: The English right-back suffered an unfortunate injury in the win over Arsenal in the FA Cup and will need a few weeks of rest to get fit again. He’s a doubt for the remaining games this month. Potential return date: February

Kostas Tsimikas: The Greek left-back has quickly recovered from his collarbone injury and has also returned to training. His return should be in a similar timeframe as Robertson’s. Potential return date: Late January

Stefan Bajcetic: The Spanish midfielder has struggled with injuries all season long, but he is making progress and Ljinders recently hinted that he’ll be back in action next month. Potential return date: Late February

Thiago Alcantara: The Spanish midfielder has not made any appearances this season due to injuries and is still working on getting back to full fitness without aggravating anything. He should make a return next month if everything goes well. Potential return date: February

Joel Matip: The Cameroonian defender has suffered a season-ending knee injury and is highly unlikely to play any part for Liverpool in this campaign. With his contract running down, it’s questionable whether he plays for the Reds anymore. Potential return date: N/A
