THE January transfer window will open next week and Liverpool are being tipped to make a splash.
Here, SunSport take a closer look at the FIVE most likely transfer according to bookmakers Betfair.
Liverpool are 5/1 to sign Wolves defender Conor Coady in January[/caption]

Ben White – 9/2
Liverpool need a defender to provide cover for injured duo Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez, who will likely be sidelined for the remainder of the season.
And Brighton centre-back Ben White is a very good one.
The 23-year-old enjoyed a successful spell with Leeds in the Championship and has proven that he’s capable of performing at the highest level.
He’s reportedly valued at around £40m but there’s plenty of competition for White’s signature with Manchester United and Tottenham also linked.
Conor Coady – 5/1
Perhaps a sentimental inclusion from the bookmakers.
Conor Coady, a well-known Liverpool fan who came through the youth ranks at Anfield, is a possible defensive solution for Jurgen Klopp and Co.
The St Helens-born ace has been outstanding for Wolves for a number of seasons and recently earned his England debut.
Former Reds defender Mark Lawrenson described him as a ‘ready-made’ replacement for van Dijk.
But having signed a new contract in September, it’s probable the 27-year-old will remain at Molineux.
To join Liverpool before February 2
- Ben White – 9/2
- Conor Coady – 5/1
- Jadon Sancho – 10/1
- Kylian Mbappe – 10/1
- Dele Alli – 16/1

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is looking to strengthen his side in the January transfer window[/caption]
Jadon Sancho – 10/1
Just imagine the Manchester United fume…
Bookmakers Betfair think it’s a 10/1 chance that Borussia Dortmund superstar Jadon Sancho will join Liverpool next month.
The 20-year-old has been on United’s wishlist for the last 12 months but Ed Woodward was unable to negotiate on his £110m valuation.
Liverpool’s sporting director and transfer guru Michael Edwards might have more luck – and Sancho could represent the perfect heir to Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane.
Kylian Mbappe – 10/1
Unlikely. But it can’t totally be discounted that Kylian Mbappe will swap Paris for Merseyside.
The French superstar is yet to renew his contract, which expires in June 2022, and there have been reports suggesting he’s considering his options.
Spanish newspaper AS also claim that PSG are under financial pressure to sell having suffered losses of around £200m due to television rights and the Coronavirus pandemic.
Real Madrid are the current favourites to secure Mbappe’s signature.
Dele Alli – 16/1
Liverpool passed up on the chance to sign Dele Alli in 2015.
And it’s likely they’ll do the same again in January.
Alli has endured a nightmare season under Jose Mourinho having played 74 minutes of top-flight action and often being omitted from the matchday squad completely.
Spurs are reportedly open to selling or loaning the midfielder in January, and Betfair have priced him at 16/1 to arrive at Anfield.
