Liverpool will have to make some changes to their squad list after securing deals to sign Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak.

The Reds will likely have to drop two players from their squad list for the Premier League and Champions League.

Liverpool are having a hectic January transfer deadline day.

The Reds went into the window expected to sign a new centre-back, but in a late turn of events they’ve ended up with two.

Injuries to Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Fabinho have left them short of options at the back.

Liverpool were ultimately forced to change their transfer policy in order to bring in new reinforcements, with Van Dijk and Gomez unlikely to return this season.

With two players set to join, they will have to make changes to their 25-man squad list in order to fit them in.

Liverpool didn’t sell any senior players this month, so there aren’t currently any gaps in the squad list.

And centre-backs Davies and Kabak will both have to be added to the list until the end of the season at least.

Van Dijk was already removed from the squad after his ACL injury, and is unlikely to be added back in due to the nature of his recovery time.

Gomez, on the other hand, was still left in the squad after his injury, so he could be withdrawn to make room for either Kabak or Davies.

It will also help Liverpool that Davies will count as a homegrown player.

The 25-year-old was signed for £1.6million, and will be joined by Kabak – who is set to sign from Schalke on loan.

Liverpool could also benefit from the fact Kabak is still 20, so could potentially be listed as an under-21 player.
