As far as the winter transfer window is concerned, the Merseysiders are heavily linked with a Scottish international in the form of Ryan Fraser.

According to an exclusive report covered by talkSPORT, Liverpool are in pole position to hire the services of the Bournemouth attacker in January.

It is mentioned that the 25-year-old could be available for cheap in winter taking into consideration that his current contract with the Cherries will expire in the summer. Furthermore, it is stated that he would be a great signing for the European Champions and a quality option off the bench (talkSPORT).

Stats, playing position and price tag:

Fraser has played in multiple attacking positions over the years but mainly, he is deployed on the left wing.

He was in red hot form last season. In all competitions, he started 37 games under Eddie Howe (Transfermarkt) and directly contributed in 23 goals (8 goals and 15 assists).

However, in the current campaign, so far, he has only netted 1 goal and provided 2 assists in 13 appearances.

As per Mirror Sport, Bournemouth are looking to sell the attacker, who is valued at £27million, in the winter transfer window.

Scenario at Liverpol:

At Anfield, Liverpool first choice left winger is Senegalese international Sadio Mane. The African star is arguably the club’s best player this season and therefore, he is irreplaceable in the starting XI.

In the backup, we do not really have a natural/quality left winger but Jurgen Klopp has mostly utilized Divock Origi, a natural center forward, on the left flank and the Belgian international has been highly effective for us as a super sub.

Have your say – Do Liverpool need a left winter? Should Klopp move to sign Ryan Fraser in January?
