With the transfer window now officially open, Liverpool can, if they choose, start getting some transfer business done ahead of the 2020/21 season.
Adam Lallana has now left the club after the expiry of his contract and Dejan Lovren has been sold to Russian club Zenit St. Petersburg for £11million, moves which have left a couple of gaps in the squad.
With some more players potentially set to depart, Liverpool need to make some additions to help retain the title and push for more trophies next year.
A back up for Andy Robertson at left-back should be seen as aa main priority as Liverpool need a naturally left-footed player as cover for when the Scotsman needs a rest or potentially picks up an injury.
Another centre back and a winger could also be needed to replace the outgoings to give Jurgen Klopp enough options next season.
Here are five players that I believe Liverpool should look to sign ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
5) Jamal Lewis
Jamal Lewis has been a decent asset for Norwich this season, despite their relegation, and he was especially prominent for the Canaries as they earned promotion in their 2018/19 campaign.
The left-back scored once in 28 games in the Premier League last season and may want to move to a club in the top flight. At 22-years-old Lewis still has a lot of room to develop being the understudy to Andy Robertson.
Transfermarkt value the Northern Ireland international at £9.9million which could be a cheap option for a young player with a lot of potential.
4) Ben White
The centre back, on loan from Brighton, was pivotal for Leeds United as they secured a return to the Premier League
He played every game for Leeds in the Championship and he could be a welcome addition for Liverpool.
At just 22 years old, like Lewis, he has plenty of time to grow and develop whilst learning from the best centre back in the world, Virgil van Dijk.
White is currently valued at £4.5million by Transfermarkt but will surely cost Liverpool a lot more if they did want to do a deal with Brighton.
3) Weston McKennie
Fabinho is the only player in the Liverpool squad who is a natural at playing in holding midfield so Jurgen Klopp may want to add another player to comfortably play that role.
United States international Weston McKennie could be a fine addition for the Reds after putting in several outstanding performances last season at Schalke.
McKennie has played 28 times and scored three goals over in Germany and he could be a great addition to Liverpool’s midfield – Transfermarkt value him at £18million but the Reds would almost certainly have to pay more for the 21-year-old.
2) Moussa Dembele
With 22 goals and seven assists in 42 games in all competitions for Lyon last season, Dembele is a natural goal scorer – something that Liverpool could do with.
Sometimes Liverpool need a lethal finisher in front of goal to help see out games and with heavily linked Timo Werner signing for Chelsea, The Reds could turn to Moussa Dembele.
Liverpool may have to pay a hefty fee for him with Transfermarkt valuing the Frenchmen at £36million. At only 23, Dembele has a lot of room to grow but he has already proven that he knows where the back of the net is.
1) Adama Traore
Adama Traore has had a breakthrough year this season for Wolverhampton Wanderers. By adding an end product to his speed and power, he has proven to be one of the best wingers in the Premier League.
With four goals and nine assists in 37 games in the league, he could be a welcome addition to improve squad depth in Liverpool.
He would not take Mohamed Salah’s or Sadio Mane’s place, but he would give the Reds some well-needed cover out wide.
Wolves value the Spaniard highly and the deal could cost Liverpool over £100million, which may prove to be a bit too much.
