Liverpool finished 4th this season with 76 points. With Champions League football back at Anfield, the Reds would be looking to strengthen their squad in the summer to cope up with next years’ busy schedule.
Here are the 5 players that Liverpool could sign this summer to strengthen their average squad:
5 Joe Hart
While the goalkeeping woes continue for Liverpool, the Reds would be looking for a keeper with Premier League
experience. Who better than the Manchester City keeper to boost Klopp’s ‘heavy metal’ football! Although Hart has been out of form lately but surely his contribution to Man City cannot be ignored. With the Englishman eager to prove his worth, Liverpool could be his possible destination.
Placating the ‘sign a DM’ crew, William Carvalho is one of many players who seem to be tipped for a move to Merseyside in almost every transfer window. The Sporting Lisbon man may feel that a new challenge is required in the summer, and there is expected to be a scramble to purchase him.
3 Christian Pulisic
Liverpool signing Christian Pulisic seems far too good to be true (how often do they really get their main transfer target?) but it shouldn’t be completely ruled out. The prodigiously-gifted Borussia Dortmund man is one of Europe’s most highly-rated young attackers, and he would be exactly what the Reds need next season and beyond. Dortmund will be very keen to keep hold of one of their prized assets, but Klopp is a big admirer and reportedly attempted to sign him in January.
2 Demarai Gray
It has only taken a handful of eye-catching showings for Liverpool to be linked with Leicester City youngster Demarai Gray. The tricky winger fits perfectly into Klopp’s footballing philosophy, with his pace, versatility and long-term potential all standing out. Finally, signing proven quality – a Premier League winner no less!
1 Inaki Williams
This feels like a rumour that has legs in it, especially in comparison to some of those listed. Athletic Bilbao youngster Inaki Williams has “Klopp player” written all over him, and if Liverpool could get a deal over the line, it would be a significant piece of business. The 22-year Spaniard is quick, creative, a present and future investment and would add an extra dimension to the Reds’ attack.
