Liverpool had a quiet January window as the club opted not to make reinforcements after an active summer. But various speculations have surfaced time and once again and are still making the headlines even though we are only in February.
The Reds have been strongly linked with a swoop for Paris Saint Germain midfield star Adrien Rabiot who has refused to extend his stay at the Parisians.
The player was interested in completing a summer move to Barcelona upon expiration of his deal but failed to strike a pre-contract agreement with the Catalan club.
The La Liga heavyweights have cooled down their long-standing interest in Rabiot after announcing a mega-money swoop for Dutch sensation Frenkie De Jong from Eredivisie club Ajax for a £65 million deal.
Although reports from Sport state a transfer could still be concluded, the French star is no longer a priority for Blaugrana who are well equipped in the middle of the park.
Adrien has reportedly parted company with his agent and mother who promised to complete a deal but failed to do so. The saga has worsened the star’s relationship with his boyhood side as they have exiled him from the senior-team since late December.
Meanwhile, Liverpool instead they are not after the star irrespective of his reputation and willingness to join the Anfield outfit being his favourite football side as stated before.
The club have invested heavily on Brazilian star Fabinho and Guinean midfielder Naby Keita back in the summer window, and the presence of skipper James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana and Georginio Wijnaldum have made the Reds balanced and composed enough in the centre of the pitch.
