Two England starlets Liverpool are favourites to sign in January.

Skybet have opened up markets on a number of players and we take a look at the two England starlets they have made Liverpool favourites to sign.

Liverpool are in the markets for several different players, including the likes of Juan Mata, Xabi Alonso, Luke Shaw, Tom Ince and the list could go on.

Despite the fact they have been given long odds on signing various players, they've also been named favourites to bag two England starlets before the January window is closed.

Derby County's Will Hughes is named at 3/1, which is no surprise due to the heavy amount of speculation linking him to Liverpool. In fact some journalist have even hinted that there has been an agreement between the clubs that will make Will Hughes a Liverpool player in January.

Although Brendan Rodgers was quick to quash the rumours of an agreed deal, he admitted to being fond of the 18-year-old midfield maestro and will no doubt have a keen eye on him.

Will Hughes is one of the most technically gifted players in the Championship, and without question one of the best prospects currently in the game. A cultured central midfielder with a versatility to play a defensive and attacking roles, he was the second youngest player to appear for the England under-21s aged just 17-years-old. He has since become a regular in Gareth Southgate's team, scoring his first goal for the side in the 9-0 destruction of San Marino.

Another player linked to Liverpool is Chelsea's Ryan Bertrand and the Reds have been priced up at 6/1 to eventually bag the Champions League medallist.

Despite only playing in 56 games for Chelsea, he can claim to have one of the most impressive trophy cabinets in England. The 24-year-old full-back is a former Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup winner with Chelsea, but now must move to in pursuit of first team football.

Brendan Rodgers is reportedly a huge fan of the under used defender and reportedly will look to take him on in the Winter window, either on loan or permanently. The last side linked with the defender was Nottingham Forest, so if Liverpool want their man, they should face little competition for his signature.
