The Reds are set to wrap up the signing of Charlton youngster Joe Gomez by the end of the week, and have managed to fend off a new offer from Manchester City for Raheem Sterling in the process.

However, despite rejecting the approach for Sterling, manager Brendan Rodgers has intimated that as any as eight players could be heading for the exit at Anfield during the transfer window.

And that means that he will need replacements. One name that has already departed is right-back Glen Johnson. The England international wound down his contract, thus leading the papers to speculate that Southampton’s Nathaniel Clyne will be the man to fill his boots.

The Reds are confident in landing Clyne’s signature, especially after the Saints confirmed the £3.5m signing of Cedric Soares from Sporting Lisbon on Thursday morning.
