Liverpool are sure to be active in the summer transfer window. The Reds have no choice but to recruit and make a statement. This season was a disaster, next season has to be a success. Liverpool have been linked with a move for Christian Pulisic and the player has a history with Jürgen Klopp.
This summer has to be all about addressing glaring problems in the squad.
We need a natural goal scorer, quality in depth in the midfield and wings and more reliability in the centre of defence.
The injury crisis this term has exposed just how thin the squad is in reality.
We haven’t been able to sub out star players without a massive drop off in quality and this has led to fatigue in our first XI.

The club will surely upgrade on our squad players this summer.
Liverpool linked with Christian Pulisic
The summer transfer rumours are already well up and running.
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool are interested in Christian Pulisic.
The American is said to be unhappy with his lack of playing time at Chelsea, alerting Manchester United, Liverpool and Bayern Munich.
The winger has started just nine games in the Premier League this term.
Christian Pulisic on Jürgen Klopp
Way back when, Christian Pulisic and Jürgen Klopp worked together at Borussia Dortmund.
The American had joined the German side at 16-years-old and he was thrown into first team training early on.
Speaking on the 13&Me podcast, Christian Pulisic spoke about how grateful he was for Jürgen Klopp:
“I’m getting ready, going to training and it’s just unreal. I was 16 or 17 and I’m going in the warm-up and there’s huge names at the time.
“There’s [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang, Marco Reus, Matts Hummels, [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan. All these guys and they were just in the Champions League final the year before.
“It’s like I’m going in and I’m just this 16-year-old kid. I was thinking just do my best. I was just so excited and I’m just thankful to Jurgen Klopp that he gave me that opportunity.
“I’ll take that with me forever and I’m really grateful.”
What RTK has to say
Liverpool rumours around Christian Pulisic will only be intensified by his history with Jürgen Klopp.
The American winger is just 22-years-old and clearly has mountains of potential.
Whether or not we capitalise on his lack of opportunities at Chelsea is another matter.
The West London side aren’t exactly strapped for cash, they won’t sell him cheap.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on this one, we’d love him at Anfield.
