The January transfer window is now open, with Liverpool continuing to be linked with a host of big names.

Jurgen Klopp has been forced to contend with a crippling injury crisis during the first half of the season, leading to speculation that the Premier League champions could move for a new defender this month.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Anfield.

Sunday morning's Liverpool transfer talk news roundup:


Georginio Wijnaldum 'decides to leave Liverpool'

Georginio Wijnaldum has reportedly decided to leave Liverpool on a free transfer.

The Netherlands international's current deal at Anfield is due to expire at the end of June, and it is understood that talks over an extension have reached a stalemate.

Barcelona continue to be strongly linked with the central midfielder, and according to The Mirror, Wijnaldum will reject any offer from Liverpool in order to move to Camp Nou on a free.

The report claims that the 30-year-old 'dreams' of joining the Catalan giants, and Ronald Koeman's position as head coach has only strengthened Wijnaldum's desire to make the move.

The Dutchman has again been a key player for the Reds this season despite the speculation surrounding his future, making 25 appearances in all competitions, while he has not missed a single Premier League game in 2020-21.

Barca are also said to be confident of signing Lyon forward Memphis Depay on a free transfer.



Liverpool 'make Dayot Upamecano contact but also want Ibrahima Konate'

Liverpool have reportedly made contact with the representatives of RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano but are also interested in the Frenchman's teammate Ibrahima Konate.

Upamecano is widely expected to leave the Red Bull Arena during this summer's transfer window when a €42m (£37.3m) release clause in his contract comes into play.

According to Bild, Liverpool have made contact with the 22-year-old to discuss a move to Anfield, although the club are likely to face competition from the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Bayern Munich.

The report claims that Jurgen Klopp's side are also interested in Upamecano's Leipzig teammate Konate, who has also impressed during his time with the German outfit.

Konate, 21, has a contract with the Bundesliga club until the summer of 2023, and Arsenal have previously been credited with an interest in his services.

Liverpool currently have injury problems in the middle of their defence with Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez both on the sidelines with long-term knee problems.
