Three Rising Talents Who Liverpool Can Target This Summer
Jurgen Klopp is a busy man in what is his second summer transfer window since his move to Anfield. Unlike last summer, the German gaffer seems prepared to splash the cash on his top transfer targets and is targeting some of the most exciting players in Europe this summer.
This has seen him linked with a number of players who can improve different positions in the squad. The team has a lot of star names, with Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana, Geroginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino all gracing us with their presence. Klopp is also looking to add Mohamed Salah to the mix but nothing is yet a certainty. Liverpool need to add some quality to their squad before the start of the next season, especially if they miss out on the Egyptian star.
Here are 3 young and upcoming talents who Liverpool can target this summer.
The Brazilian midfielder is one of the most gifted players in Europe but he has not been able to establish himself in the first team at the Camp Nou in his two years at the club. With new coach Ernesto Valverde expected to add more quality to his midfield, Rafinha might fall further down the pecking order and this will pave a move to Anfield. The midfielder has already been linked with Liverpool and if Klopp is looking for a first team option next season, the 24-year old could be the right man.
Emil Forsberg (RB Leipzig)
One player constantly linked with a move to Liverpool is the RB Leipzig star Forsberg. The versatile Swedish international has been in decent form in the Bundesliga, picking up 8 goals and 22 assists all season, standing as one of the most productive players in Europe. At just 25, he is still learning the game and is a perfect fit for Liverpool’s style of play. The Reds are trying hard to sign him up and he could be a superb addition to the squad at Anfield.
Kasper Dolberg (Ajax)
Arguably the most exciting player on the list, Dolberg was a sensation in the Dutch domestic circuit, where he picked up 23 goals and 8 assists. He played as a centre-forward but is also comfortable in a slightly deeper role and has been linked with a move to Liverpool a few weeks ago. He is just 19, and is a star for the future. He could be tempted to play under Klopp at Anfield. Surely, his addition will make the Reds a stronger attacking unit.
