The January transfer window and AFCON 2017 are running in tandem this month and so it would make sense for the Reds to be looking at who they could get in.
Currently, we haven’t signed a single player in this window when really, we need to start as soon as possible.
After drawing against Manchester United we’ve put ourselves in a great position to win the league this season as we’ve only got to go away to one title rival for the rest of the year – Man City.
The one weakness of the team, though, is its shortage of options and so if we can get someone or more than one in over the coming weeks we’ll surely be looking good.
Time to have a scout of what’s about at AFCON 2017, then, and we reckon these two from Cameroon have something to offer…
The young goalkeeper has been with the likes of Barcelona B and is now with Sevilla Atletico so he’s definitely got some talent.
What he needs to do now is have a good performance at the tournament to really emerge as one of Africa’s brightest ‘keepers. He’s already played at this tournament back in 2015 even though he only turned 21 last month which means he’s got plenty of time to get better then.
Moukandjo is a pacy and powerful striker just waiting for a move to one of Europe’s biggest clubs.
He can play down the left, right or through the middle and has seven goals in 15 Ligue 1 games this season for his current club Lorient. With better support around him, then, you’d expect him to score more goals and we reckon the Reds could help provide such a platform.
