Reds set for January spending spree after poor start.
Liverpool look set to continue their heavy spending when the transfer window opens again in January, with Brendan Rodgers looking to strengthen further after a difficult start to the season.
The Reds look in transition after losing Luis Suarez to Barcelona in the summer, while the club’s summer signings have not yet settled and made the desired impact at Anfield, with the team suffering two defeats in their opening four games.
Aston Villa won 1-0 at Anfield this weekend, while Rodgers’ side were also well beaten at Manchester City in August, and the Merseyside giants are now ready to enter the transfer market again to strengthen in the defensive areas in particular.
The club’s three main targets are as follows:
3) Inigo Martinez (Real Sociedad)
Liverpool are in clear need of signings in central defence after some unconvincing displays from the likes of Dejan Lovren, Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho so far, and could revive their interest in one-time target Inigo Martinez. The 23-year-old has been a highly impressive performer for Real Sociedad in recent times and could be available for around £16m this January. The likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid have looked at him in the past, and he certainly looks like having the calibre to come in and help the Reds tighten up at the back.
