Premier League title race: Man City maintain healthy lead at top

Liverpool have enjoyed a successful January, ending the month unbeaten with a record of four wins and two draws, advancing to the Carabao Cup final and FA Cup fourth round on the way.

It was a tricky spell for Jurgen Klopp to negotiate due to the absences of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita, who are playing at the Africa Cup of Nations.

With injuries and coronavirus concerns also taken into account, the Reds can be very pleased with their results over a hectic few weeks.

Things have been less busy regarding transfers throughout January, with Klopp famously reluctant to enter the market midway through the season.

That being said, there may yet be some movement in the final week of the window as Liverpool battle for Fabio Carvalho's signature and ponder letting a defender leave.

All that and more in Tuesday's Liverpool transfer round-up.

Villa pursuing Gomez

Aston Villa are preparing to test Liverpool's resolve with an offer for Joe Gomez having already registered their interest in the defender earlier this month, Football Insider claims.

Gomez, 24, has only made 12 appearances in all competitions this season and finds himself fourth choice in Jurgen Klopp's centre-back pecking order.

The report claims Villa manager Steven Gerrard hopes to add the Englishman to his squad as he is a 'huge admirer' of his.

Further, the Reds are likely to let one of their centre-backs depart before the January window slams shut, although Nat Phillips remains likeliest to leave Anfield.

The 24-year-old has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs including Watford and West Ham, while there is also interest from further afield.

Liverpool are battling Leeds and West Ham for Carvalho's signature as the race for the Fulham youngster ramps up, reports the Daily Mail.

Carvalho has less than six months remaining on his contract at Craven Cottage and he has been in scintillating form of late to take his tally to eight goals in 17 Championship games this season.

The Portugal-born Englishman, 19, plays in attacking midfield and a £5million price tag has been touted.

Wijnaldum linked with Spurs

Former Anfield favourite Georginio Wijnaldum would be willing to join Tottenham on loan, according to the Daily Mail.

The 31-year-old only joined Paris Saint-Germain last summer but his debut season in Ligue 1 has not gone as planned with boss Mauricio Pochettino regularly leaving him out of the starting XI.

The report adds Tanguy Ndombele, Spurs' record signing, could move the other way to return to his native France and look to resurrect his career.

Arsenal have also been linked with Wijnaldum in recent weeks, while the player missed Sunday's 4-0 thrashing of Reims with a left ankle injury.
