Transfer rumors regarding Liverpool are spreading like wildfire, with star players emerging on Jurgen Klopp’s shopping list from all the corners of the world (though mostly his old stomping grounds at Borussia Dortmund).
The immediate future certainly appears promising for Liverpool with a big game against Watford this weekend and a litany of prized talents on the market for the Reds in January. Will Klopp be able to shift the magic he’s brought to the pitch to the negotiating table?
Here is the Liverpool transfer roundup for Wednesday:

Maximilian Hofmann targeted
Rapid Wien defender Maximilian Hofmann was apparently a target that Jurgen Klopp had his eyes on even during his Borussia Dortmund days. This January, he plans to try and pull the trigger on a deal even amidst competition from Bayer Leverkusen and Hamburg. [Source: Transfer Tavern]
