Brendan Rodgers has seen his strength in depth in central midfield areas tested this term, most recently during Steven Gerrard’s lay-off, and may well feel that experienced French international Valbuena as a good solid option to consider targeting this month.

The pint sized midfield dynamo may feel the time right for a Stade Velodrome exit given his side’s struggles this term.

Marseille lost all six of their Champions League group encounters and sitting in sixth spot in Ligue 1, some 15 points of leaders PSG, form that led to the sacking of Elie Baup.

Valbuena offers plenty of steel and determination as well as being able to drive the ball forward.

29 year old Valbuena is a hugely experienced performer who has 289 appearances for Marseille during his eight seasons at the club.

As Liverpool continue their push for a coveted Champions League spot Rodgers may feel the addition of a player of Valbuena’s standing could be crucial during the January transfer window.
