The January transfer window is on the horizon, and the English Premier League (EPL) clubs are mulling over the names of the players they want. One name that has successfully sprung up in almost all the recent trasnfer windows is of the Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller.

According to Sport Witness, Liverpool are eyeing an unbelievable transfer of Muller in the forthcoming transfer window. Apparently, they are gearing up to beat Manchester United's £75 million bid for the German superstar.

With Jurgen Klopp at the helm of the club, Liverpool are trying to resurrect their EPL campaign, and so far, the mentalities of the players have changed. There are a lot more positives to take back home unlike the last couple of seasons. But even if this next-to-impossible transfer happens, will the German international striker fit into the Liverpool system under Klopp?

On the other hand, Manchester United are still believed to be interested in Muller despite getting rejected by Bayern Munich a number of times in the recent transfer windows. The German giants had publicly asked the Red Devils to stop bidding for Muller as under no circumstances would they be selling the 28-year-old talented striker.

With United out of their path and Klopp as the German connection, Liverpool might as well give it a try and rope in Muller in the upcoming January transfer window. 

According to reports, Muller is still in discussion with his current club Bayern Munich over his new contract, and the Merseyside Reds are monitoring the situation. 

Manchester United have also shown interest in Arjen Robben. This interest has sustained itself since Sir Alex ferguson's time at the Old Trafford, but the deal could never be completed. Louis Van Gaal has confirmed his interest on the Dutch winger and said he is in need of a pacy winger in the upcoming transfer window. It is almost certain that United cannot pull off Robben and Muller together, but Liverpool will be looking forward to flex their economic muscles.
