    It will be extremely difficult to strengthen the team in the January transfer window and we all know Klopp is hardly a fan of adding to the squad in that short time frame.

    But, doing a little research, it is a great chance to scour Europe and look at some players who will be free agents come June 2018. Having done just this, I've come up with 5 fantastic players who we should be casting our eye over.

    Also, the likes of Stefan de Vrij and Marcos Llorente have just signed new contracts with Lazio and Real Madrid - two players who would have been good options for sure.

    De Vrij has a £26m buyout clause if anyone was to take that option.

    Gimenez is a possible free transfer? Decent.

    We should definitely be in for Goretzka.

    You'd think they'd want a fee for at least one of them in January if possible.

    I've heard good things about Gimenez. How have Atletico allowed him to run down his deal? Is he a shoe in for Barca or someone?

    Savic has taken his place in the side but he's definitely worth looking at.

    Goretzka is definitely the one. Although if Fernandinho doesn't sign a contract to stay at City I would be very keen on that.

    I'd expect the players themselves will want to wait until end of year to maximise their wages. Hawk themselves round to the highest bidder...

    They probably already know where they are going...I guess it'll depend on if their destination club wants them earlier...or someone else wants to blow that offer out of the water.

    Giuseppe Marotta has said in the Italian press that Juve will be looking to bring in both Leon Goretzka and Emre Can in the summer. Looks like he wants both of them.

    Didnt Bierhoff say Goretzka is going to England last week?

    He did indeed.

    Goretzka also rubbished rumours that there was an agreement in place with Bayern Munich. He would be a good replacement for Emre Can to be honest.

    He'd certainly be an upgrade imo. Right now Goretzka is the better of the two.

    I think Moutinho will be available next summer and he might be a good experienced head in midfield.

    First three please. Kepa is an excellent, err, keeper.

    Happy with Fernandinho but don't for a second think City would allow him to leave or that he'd particularly want to.

    Of course, but interesting they haven't tied him down yet.

    He's exactly the sort of midfielder we could use. Box-to-box enough for Jurgen's system but leagues ahead of Gini, Hendo or Can defensively.

    Goretzka is over 5ft 5inches, so we probably won't be in for him.

    He's 6ft 2 inch

    I think that's a massive reason we should be in for him. We don't exactly have the biggest squad in terms of size.

    We don't...which is what makes Grujic's total omission even stranger.

    He reminds me of Matic a bit, both in build and his sort of slowish deliberate movement (hard to describe), although he is more attacking than Matic.

    There are a few murmurs with regards to Gimenez.
