Liverpool are reportedly ready to splash in January if the right player is available.

What’s the word

According to a report from Football Insider, Fenway Sports Group would be “willing” to fund a “huge-money January signing”, should the club identify the right player for Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

As per the same report, Liverpool’s latest accounts revealed assets of £160.7million, including £31m cash in the bank, with £108.9m cash owed to them.

Whilst FSG already spent a fee rising to £85m on Darwin Nunez, after a £50m payout to Porto for Luis Diaz’s services in January, the report states that those payouts will not stop the owners from spending big money in the winter transfer window.

“Huge-money” signing

Jude Bellingham is one of the first names that come to mind when you mention the words ‘Liverpool’ and ‘huge-money signing.’ Though, it would be rather shocking if the 19-year-old was to switch clubs midway through the season; especially when you bear in mind their league position, as they sit just two points off top spot in the Bundesliga with eight games played.

But on the flip-side of that conundrum, Nicolo Barella could well be available in the January transfer window, due to Inter Milan’s financial struggles, with Italian outlet Calciomercato expressing that the Nerazzuri could be forced to sell.

The 25-year-old has bossed proceedings in Serie A for a number of years and possesses the traits needed to thrive in a Jurgen Klopp team, having proven himself in both aspects of the game.

Barella’s average of 3.98 shot-creating actions is elite level and gives a great insight as to how the player racked up 15 goal contributions in the form of three goals and 12 assists across 36 Serie A games last season.

The Italian has carried that form into the new campaign and currently sits with two goals and three assists from eight Serie A appearances.

Since joining Inter, Barella has shone as a progressive midfielder and amidst Inter’s financial struggles, Liverpool could make their move for what is a top-class asset.
