Liverpool are expected to have a big summer transfer window. The Reds need to add more quality in depth, Jürgen Klopp needs to have better options on the bench, more to rotate with. The Reds have been linked with a move for one of the Premier League’s brightest young wingers. With Harvey Barnes stretchered off today Liverpool may rethink their plans.
