We round up today’s latest Liverpool transfer rumours and Liverpool transfer gossip.

We’re into the second week of the January transfer window.

Indeed, all things have been quiet at Anfield so far.

There has yet to be any major incoming or outgoings and that’s how it could be for the remainder of the month.

Still, there is always plenty of Liverpool transfer news, rumours and gossip flying around.

We round up the latest news.

Bissouma asking price revealed

Liverpool must pay £50 million for Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Yves Bissouma this month, according to The Athletic.

Bissouma has persistently been linked with a move to Anfield.

He's recognised as one of the best centre-midfielders outside the "Big Six" clubs in the Premier League.

Bissouma has only 18 months remaining on his Brighton contract and they could look to cash in him before his value deflates.

But the Seagulls will be holding out for a significant fee, with Aston Villa also a potential suitor.

Caoimhin Kelleher has been urged to leave Liverpool on loan.

The goalkeeper made a fifth appearance of the season in the Reds' 4-1 defeat of Shrewsbury in the FA Cup on Sunday.

Kelleher, 23, is deputy to Alisson Becker at Anfield and struggles for regular minutes.

The Republic of Ireland international at a crucial juncture of his career and Shay Given believes Kelleher must depart this month to enhance his promising progress.

Given told Premier Sport: "If it was me, I'd be knocking Klopp's door down, I really would. I'd be saying that I need to go out on loan, go and play.

“January is a time to do that, I'd be on to my agent and manager to get me playing games.

"I think for all parties concerned the best thing would be to go on loan. I think he's good enough to play in the first team, he's a really good goalkeeper. I think he wants to show people that."

Lazio want Origi

Divock Origi is a top striking target for Lazio this month.

The striker remains on the fringes of things at Liverpool despite scoring several important goals down the years.

And Maurizio Sarri is keen to bring Origi to Rome to provide cover and competition to Ciro Immobile, as per Italian newspaper Il Tempo.

Origi is currently sidelined with an injury and has missed Liverpool's previous seven games.
