Liverpool were on the verge of taking home the biggest trophy in club football, yet they have finished their season without a title again. Jurgen Klopp seems to have finally have drilled a team that could destroy any opposition in the world, however, it’s also the case that his side can self-destruct at any moment.
Clearly, there are a few loopholes to be addressed and Liverpool fans must be hoping that the club signs new exciting players to do that job.
The highly-rated Naby Keita is already on his way to joining the Reds this summer. There are areas where Liverpool can benefit from new players. Let’s look at 3 former targets they can sign to improve their game.
Thomas Lemar was the subject of a bidding war between two premier league heavyweights, Arsenal and Liverpool. Both the English clubs were reported to have made offers in excess to £90million before they decided to pull out as there wasn’t enough time left for a move to take place.
Liverpool should explore the possibility of signing the player again this summer as they could sign the player for much less money this time around.
The Monaco winger is said to be looking for a way out and the reds can make the most out of the exciting situation. Lemar is a very exciting attacking player who is capable of magic with his left foot.
Roma’s Alisson is among the most coveted goalkeepers in the transfer market today. With the likes of Real Madrid and PSG rumoured to be interested in the services of the player, Liverpool will need to work some magic to secure the deal.
Liverpool were linked with the Brazillian keeper in the winter transfer window this year and they must get back in the battle to sign the shot-stopper this summer again.
Mignolet and Karius have both let Liverpool down on many occasions this season and they could do well with a better goalkeeper between the sticks.
Timo Werner has previously been linked with Liverpool and Klopp must consider a move for the German striker this summer.
Firmino is a top class striker and there’s no doubt about it. However, Liverpool need to add more goals to their ranks as they cannot afford to make Firmino carry the goalscoring burden up front.
Moreover, it’s not guaranteed that Salah will enjoy another 40-goal season and hence Liverpool would do well to add a striker to their ranks.
