Including Loris Karius, these 5 Liverpool players will withdraw in January 2022


Competitions in several European countries will enter the end of the mid-season in December 2021 and enter the beginning of 2022. Of course, in the middle of the season, the player transfer window activity will be in January.

Not only the activity of bringing in new players to increase the strength of the team. However, there are also players who leave because their contracts are running out and are looking for new ports.

Not to forget the English giants, Liverpool , which has the potential to lose a number of players next winter. Some of them mostly do not get the opportunity to play.

Offers to play at other clubs that can provide guarantees to appear, can be taken into consideration by players choosing to leave. Recently, reports from planet football reported that Liverpool could be left with at least five players.

Who are they? Without further ado, here are five Liverpool players who are likely to leave Anfield next month.

Joe Gomez
Joe Gomez is currently in a difficult position at Liverpool. Together with Van Dijk, he formed a centre-back duo that was sometimes difficult to break as Liverpool ended their long wait for the 2019/2020 Premier League title.

But he suffered a serious knee injury last year and has struggled to win back his place in the team, making only two substitute appearances this season. Now he is struggling to get back into the first team.

Aston Villa, through manager Steven Gerrard, seems interested in recruiting Joe Gomez. The Villans also have to compete with Newcastle United, who reportedly also has an interest in Gomez.

NecoThe player who plays at right-back and is still young has shown a bright future at Liverpool. But he has to fight for a position with players like Trent Alexander-Arnold, of course very difficult.

The 20-year-old is already a regular for the Wales national team and is likely to break straight into the Premier League’s bottom half. Manager Jurgen Klopp actually wants to keep him.

But the competition in his position will be very difficult for Neco Williams to appear regularly at Anfield. Leaving Liverpool seems to be a solution for his future career.

Marcelo Pitaluga
The Brazilian goalkeeper who Liverpool signed from Fluminense in 2020 on the recommendation of Alisson and goalkeeping coach John Achterberg.

The 18-year-old is yet to make a single first-team appearance but is highly rated and there is potential for him to leave on loan in January if the right club comes along.

Marcelo Pitaluga will be on loan a lot by Liverpool because he is still very young. On the other hand, he will find it difficult to compete with Alisson as the main goalkeeper for the Reds at this time.

Nat Phillips
The defender who actually had the opportunity to play under Jurgen Klopp’s control. Especially while Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip all picked up injuries last season, he managed to make 20 appearances across all competitions.

But the situation is much different from this season. He didn’t play at all and was just a bench warmer. As a result, Nat Phillips may be included in the list of players who will leave.

Newcastle appear to be serious suitors for Nat Phillips. Newcastle United can also provide an opportunity for him to play more often, rather than having to stay at Anfield.

Loris Karius
Liverpool’s most difficult goalkeeper to forget because of a blunder he made in the 2018 Champions League final against Real Madrid. Loris Karius is still listed as a Liverpool player.

His contract at Liverpool expires at the end of the season, but he sits fourth or fifth in the goalkeeper position at Anfield. He was loaned to Turkish League club Besiktas for two seasons.

Seeing the very tight competition in the goalkeeper position, Loris Karius will be very unlikely to return to being the main goalkeeper at Liverpool.
