MIDFIELD ADDITION: Will Liverpool add a central midfielder in January?

 

The January transfer window has been slow for Liverpool so far, but many fans feel like adding someone in midfield is needed.

After the first half of the season has been disrupted by covid, the Reds have been forced to select the likes of Tyler Morton and Elijah Dixon Bonner.

Jürgen Klopp's strongest Liverpool midfield three consists of captain Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho in the holding role.

Early on, Klopp showed an intention to pick Harvey Elliott in that midfield three - similar to his early nod for Diogo Jota - until the teenager suffered a shocking injury at Leeds.

Stalwart James Milner offers solid, gritty performances in the middle without ever pushing the limits offensively, while Naby Keita is the opposite.

Whilst Morton has held his own in the middle, he is still short of being a regular in the side.

The one question that sticks with Liverpool fans is that of replacing Gini Wijnaldum, which many say hasn't happened.

Klopp would argue the development of Elliott would be the replacement, and his injury has meant a case of out of sight, out of mind with fans.

His return could prove the manager right, but could Liverpool do with bolstering their midfield now?

On the Shankly Gates Podcast, Kieran and Tarran discussed whether they should be looking at making signings in January to boost their options.
