Meanwhile, forward Rhian Brewster has moved to Swansea on loan.
The latest players Liverpool have been linked with…
Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham are among the clubs monitoring Brighton defender Ben White during his current loan at Leeds.
There is no break clause in his season-long loan from the Seagulls, however, so the most likely chance of a deal this month would be for a club to buy him and agree to loan him straight back to Leeds for the rest of the campaign.
Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham are among a host of clubs monitoring the Lille striker Victor Osimhen.
However, the Nigeria international is expected to stay at Lille for the rest of the season unless the French club receives a January offer that is too good to refuse.
Trabzonspor president Ahmet Agaoglu has seemed to confirm Liverpool are interested in goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir too, saying: “It’s been said Liverpool have made an offer. So a team that is undefeated in the Premier League wants my keeper. In other words Liverpool’s goalkeeper is in my goal.”

Analysis: What to expect this January
Sky Sports News Vinny O’Connor…
“Liverpool have wanted to sign a new versatile forward and it appears they have their man in Takumi Minamino from Red Bull Salzburg for a seemingly bargain price of £7.25m.
- What will your PL team do in January?
“Other than that, the Reds are open to anything that can improve on what they have got, but with a Champions League-winning squad and one on course for a first Premier League title, that leaves their options very limited.
“In terms of outgoings, young striker Rhian Brewster is available for loan and there have been a number of inquiries already, including from Swansea in the Championship. Aston Villa are also keen.
“Nathaniel Clyne is also available again with his injury recovery close to completion and a return to training pencilled in for next month.”
