Euro 2020 continues today with one game from Group A along with the opening pair of Group B fixtures.
While there are no current Liverpool players involved in these matches, there are a few individuals that Reds fans should keep an eye on.
RTK has already delivered the five players to watch in Group A, so here is the Group B alternative.
Team: Belgium / Leicester City
First up is a player that lots of Liverpool fans have been talking about recently.
With injury concerns for Belgium’s No 6 Axel Witsel and No 10 Kevin de Bruyne, Tielemans will have to take on a greater role in the No 8 position.
A good showing for Tielemans would undoubtedly drive his price up, but Liverpool have paid big bucks in the past when they wanted a player badly enough.
Team: Belgium / Rennes
Tielemans isn’t the only Belgian that has been linked to Liverpool recently.
The boss seemingly saw him as the successor to the Senegal star.
Now at Rennes, Doku is as promising as ever. With Liverpool in need of attacking talent, a good Euro 2020 could encourage them to move for the 19-year-old.
Team: Denmark / Sampdoria
Had Liverpool not signed Ibrahima Konate, we would have picked Joachim Andersen as the Danish player that Reds fans should keep an eye on.
Instead, it is the versatile Mikkel Damsgaard.
The attacker scored two goals and got four assists in 35 Serie A games last season, 18 of which were starts.
While these are not outstanding numbers, they are decent for such a young player.
Damsgaard will likely improve next season, so is worth keeping an eye on this summer and beyond.
Team: Finland / Brentford
Finland are not expected to go far at Euro 2020, so it is little surprise that not many of their players are really worth watching.
Marcus Forss will probably be playing Premier League football next season after earning promotion with Brentford.
He scored eight goals and assisted one in 2020/21. He started just 10 games, with 32 appearances off the bench.
Similar to Damsgaard, he is a versatile attacker that looks relatively promising, so don’t be too surprised if he explodes over the coming months and years.
Team: Russia / CSKA Moscow
Position: Defensive Midfielder
Finally, we have the most obscure player of the lot.
Maksim Mukhin has only played 10 senior league games. Yet his performances in these games have earned him a Euros call up and a move from Lokomotiv Moscow to city rivals CSKA.
Mukhin is an energetic defensive presence. He put up 5.5 tackles and interceptions per game last campaign.
He probably won’t get much game time in Group B, but he probably deserves it.
While Liverpool won’t be getting him this summer, Mukhin is one for the future.
Remember the name.
