A 2-0 loss to Newcastle United this weekend may have slammed the brakes on Liverpool‘s Premier League title run, but with the January transfer window approaching there are plenty of talents for manager Jurgen Klopp to scoop up. From wonderkid talents to experienced veterans like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Liverpool can make some serious noise in the second half of the season if they’re willing to spend the necessary cash.
Here is the Liverpool transfer roundup for Monday:

One of Jurgen Klopp’s biggest moves during his tenure at Dortmund was acquiring Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. But his tremendous success with the club could prevent Klopp from picking him up in the transfer window.
According to TMW, PSG have targeted him as a replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Man United and Arsenal have also been pegged as possible destinations.
