Exclusive: Fabrizio Romano outlines Liverpool's winter window plans & two winger targets

Fabrizio Romano has offered his view on what Liverpool may or may not do in the January transfer window, with the market now open for business.

The Reds don't normally dip into the January market unless they really need to - as with last year's late defender fiasco - and Romano is of the opinion it could be another quiet window this time around unless they find a player who could be worth having for the long term too.

"Liverpool will only go into it if they have an opportunity that is also for the future," Romano told Anfield Watch.

"So they don't want to sign a player just for six months or 3/4 games with Mo Salah and Sadio Mane leaving the club for the African Cup.

"They will jump into it if they find an opportunity like Diogo Jota - a player with a good price with no crazy price tag, and with good skills that match Jurgen Klopp's ideas.

"So if they will are able to find this kind of opportunity, they will do it. Liverpool are looking in the transfer market for that kind of player, a winger - this is the priority.

"They like players like Raphinha from Leeds or Danjuma from Villarreal. But it's very complicated to sign them in January.

"Liverpool were very clear last summer, they signed Ibrahima Konate and then they said if we find an opportunity we will replace Wijnaldum or Shaqiri. But with crazy price tags around they decided to stay with the current team.

"So I won't be surprised if they will do the same, but they are looking at the market. So they are keeping tabs on players. And we will see in January what happens."
