Liverpool given 27-year-old transfer challenge


English Premier League leaders Liverpool are one of the few sides that might have made up their mind not to make any move in this winter transfer window as a result of the big squad they have got at the moment.

With the latest development that saw Joe Gomez out to injury as well as Dejan Lovren who has joined the injury list, Liverpool boss was forced to play Fabinho in the defense to pair Virgil Van Dijk.

This has forced calls for new additions in the team with a lot of names already being linked with James Forrest being latest to be mentioned.

Former Wales striker John Hartson in reaction to the latest report of interest in James Forrest challenged that the Reds must have a deep pocket before they can land the star player.

James Forrest has so far scored 11 goals in the 17 appearances under his belt which makes him a player that is highly valued by Celtic and might not be allowed to leave so easily.

He noted that he was amazed to see the £8 million price quoted in the media, stressing that the Scottish side will not take as low as that for a player who has scored a number of goals to prove himself.
