Jurgen Klopp has admitted he has 'no idea' if Liverpool will sign a center-back during the January transfer window. The Reds have been dealt with a number of injury blows, with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Trent-Alexander Arnold, and Jordan Henderson all ruled out for the near future.

Erling Haaland has won the 2019-20 Golden Boy award, beating Borussia Dortmund teammate Jadon Sancho, Bayern Munich's Alphonso Davies, Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood, and Barcelona sensation Ansu Fati. This will, no doubt, raise the market value of a player who is already being chased by Real Madrid and United.

As part of our build-up to the January window, we bring to you the top transfer stories of the day. Additionally, along with the stories, we will hand out ratings to all rumours to validate their authenticity. A rating of 1 means the transfer is least likely to happen and a 10 denotes that the deal will certainly take place.

Sule dreaming of Man United move

Bayern Munich center-half Niklas Sule is reportedly 'dreaming' of a move to Manchester United in the future, according to Bild.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have struggled defensively this season, conceding 14 goals in seven games, and have only managed one Premier League clean sheet so far. Sule has started just three Bundesliga games this year, and reduced game time could cause the German to look for a move elsewhere.
