Areas of concern

Primarily there are two areas the Reds need to address this summer, three at a push.

Liverpool need to sign a forward.

This is because there is a startling lack of quality in depth in the first team at the moment.

Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi are being tipped for exits due to their inability to provide effective cover.

Two forwards could be on the agenda with a striker desperately needed as well as a winger.

Meanwhile Jürgen Klopp will be hoping for a centre midfielder to come into the side.

Gini Wijnaldum’s departure has left a gaping hole in the middle and with the shaky fitness records of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita we could do with signing a replacement.

Updates on Liverpool and Youri Tielemans

The past few days have provided some updates on Liverpool and Youri Tielemans.

The Belgian has been persistently linked with a move to the Reds this summer.

Many see him as an ideal replacement for Gini Wijnaldum given the Leicester City star’s composure on the ball.

Voetbal24 has claimed that Youri Tielemans is desperate to move to Liverpool and a £64m deal could be completed swiftly.

Whilst The Anfield Talk have relayed claims from Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri that the Reds have Tielemans at the top of their shortlist and the player is keen on the move.

Twitter reaction

On the whole fans are buzzing with the news with plenty of fans wanting the deal done immediately.
