Liverpool close in on three January signings: Premier League transfer rumours

Liverpool could have a busy couple of weeks ahead as the transfer window continues, according to the latest transfer rumours.

The Express claim that Liverpool have opened talks over signing Leicester's RIYAD MAHREZ this month. That, the report claims, is despite the player favouring a move to Arsenal.

The Express do concede that Mahrez is considered an alternative to Liverpool's priority of bringing forward NABY KEITA's move. The RB Leipzig midfield star is due to join the Reds in the summer but journalist Chris Williams on Friday evening claimed that the player will complete his transfer on Sunday as Liverpool try to land their man early. Sky Sports, however, say that talks between the clubs have not yet reached an agreement.

Meanwhile, the Anfield club have been linked with a move for Falkirk's 18-year-old left-back TONY GALLACHER. The Scottish Sun have claimed that Gallacher is set for a week's trial with the Reds with a view to a six-figure move before the end of the window. The reports claims that Manchester United are amongst a 'host' of clubs to have scouted the player, who would join Liverpool's development squad if his trial is successful.
