Liverpool are currently at the top of the Premier League standings with 54 points and are one of the favorites to win the league title this season. The Reds have lost only one Premier League game so far this season, while conceding just 10 goals. Meanwhile, Manchester City are on 50 points.

However, there are still some improvements to be made in the Liverpool squad, and Jurgen Klopp could use the January transfer window as an opportunity to further enhance his team.

On this note, here is a list of three players Liverpool could target in the winter transfer window in order to win the much-awaited Premier League trophy.


#3 Llyod Kelly

The Reds faced a defensive crisis during the last few weeks due to injuries to Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren, and Joe Gomez. That left them with Virgil van Dijk as the only senior center-back available.

The Merseyside-based club needs a new center-back who can help them cope with the injuries and Bristol City's youngster, Llyod Kelly, is a perfect man for that job.

Often compared with Joe Gomez, Kelly is capable of playing anywhere across the back line and can give the Reds a defensive cover at left-back as well as right-back. He has thus far, shown maturity beyond his years with his displays for the Robins and is strong in the air as well.

Kelly has won 2.3 aerial duels per game in the Championship this season and completed 503 passes with an accuracy of 67.2. He has also made 53 clearances along with 23 interceptions in 22 games.

The 20-year-old is being linked with the Reds during recent weeks and we might see Klopp making a move for him in the current transfer window. However, he is also on the radar of other big clubs like Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, which might force the Reds to pay a little more than expected to secure his services.
