The January Transfer Window is edging towards it's conclusion and for once it looks to be a busy day for Liverpool.

There's been a whole host of names thrown into the ring since Joel Matip and Fabinho became the latest absentees.

Over the last 24 hours, it has been reported that Preston North End and the Reds have agreed on a fee for defender Ben Davies.

Multiple reports have surfaced expressing the quality that the 25-year-old possesses.

Will Liverpool make another addition before the 11pm deadline?

Sven Botman

It looks likely that Sven Botman's move to Liverpool is OFF.

The Dutchman has been linked with a switch to Anfield throughout January but the link went cold through the month.

Today, Transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that the Lille defender will not move to Merseyside today.

Duje Caleta-Car

January ended with a cryptic instagram story from Caltea-Car's girlfriend playing the Beatles on a late-night beach walk.

Liverpool fans were tracking planes.

He was reportedly looking to leave Marseille as their financial stability has declined over the last 12 months.

There are multiple conflicting reports about the Croatian, Fabrizio Romano says No but French journalist Nabil Djellit believes until a replacement defender is found, he will remain a Marseille player.

In the UK, the Telegraph and Liverpool correspondent Neil Jones say the Reds made an approach for the 24-year-old.

The latest is that it is believed he will remain in France.

Ben Davies

The move of a lifetime is edging towards a conclusion for Ben Davies.

There is no doubt that the Google and Twitter searches saw a spike when the news broke as Liverpool ended West Ham's good run of form.

A Barrow-born defender but moulded at Preston North End looks set to end his 13-year stay at Deepdale.

Paul Gorst from the Liverpool Echo says Liverpool will pay £500,000 up front for the 25-year-old.

The North End defender is keen on joining the Reds after initial interest from Celtic and Bournemouth, as a result talks with Michael Edwards accelerated.

We can expect the announcement of Davies today and part of Liverpool's defensive crisis will be solved.

Close - Davies expected to become Liverpool player on February 1st.

Dayot Upamecano

Liverpool won't see the Frenchman arrive in February, however, the door is open to his arrival in the summer.

Upamecano's agent has spoke recently via Liverpool Echo, Bayern Munich's pursuit is intensifying however the Premier League is also being considered, his agent said:

"Otherwise, only the Premier League is in the race. There are still two top clubs in England. We will decide [on his next club] soon."

Shkodran Mustafi

Fabrizio Romano is at it again, according to reports Shkodran Mustafi has been offered to Liverpool.

Whether there is a fee with it or on a free transfer, remains to be seen.

However, Arsenal are desperate to offload the World Cup winner.
