Leicester’s win against Aston Villa following Manchester City’s loss at home to Manchester United served as a prime indication of their intent to challenge for their second Premier League title.
Liverpool, as things stand, are yet to lose a single Premier League game this season having dropped points on just two occasions with draws.
Going into the second half of the campaign, it might be difficult for Liverpool to maintain the level of intensity and consistency that they’ve shown in the first half of the season, hence; here’s a look at three midfielders Liverpool could sign in January to improve the club’s squad depth which will, in turn, allow the Reds to maintain high performance levels for the rest of the Premier League campaign;
Signing James Maddison would not only bolster Liverpool’s midfield set-up, it would also weaken Leicester’s thus potentially bringing their title bid to a halt.
James Maddison has been involved in 10 goals in 17 appearances across all competitions this season. He has proven to be an incredibly key player for Leicester, so much so that the Foxes are considering offering him a new contract.
The new contract offer means that Liverpool would have to hold talks with Maddison as soon as possible to establish some sort of verbal agreement before the window opens up.
Leicester will probably be unwilling to let Maddison leave, hence it would take a massive offer for Liverpool to sign Maddison.
