Liverpool are reportedly keeping tabs on both Leeds United winger Raphinha and West Ham United forward Jarrod Bowen ahead of possible future moves.
Jurgen Klopp‘s side are understood to have held a long-standing interest in both players as they eye possible reinforcements to their attacking lineup.
The future of Mohamed Salah in particular remains uncertain, with the Premier League’s top scorer due to be out of contract in the summer of 2023 and talks over an extension having so far proved fruitless.
Both Salah and Sadio Mane are due to leave for the Africa Cup of Nations later this month and could miss a significant chunk of the season should Egypt and Senegal make it far in the tournament.
Liverpool have been linked with attacking signings during the January window in an attempt to counteract the loss of those two, but the Liverpool Echo reports that mid-season bids for either Raphinha or Bowen are highly unlikely.
However, the Reds are still keeping tabs on both players and could consider moves next summer should they maintain their impressive form for their respective clubs.
Raphinha has scored six goals and set up one more in 13 games this season, while Bowen has scored four and assisted six in 22 outings.
