Jurgen Klopp’s men defeated Boro 3-0 at Anfield to book their place in the UEFA Champions League.
The Reds now need top quality players to reinforce their squad this summer but recent reports have suggested (via Mirror) that they are closing in on signing Leicester City attacker Demarai Gray, who has a clause (via Liverpool Echo) of 22 million pounds (€25.5million) in his contract.
The England international has been a bench warmer for the Foxes this season. He started only once in the Champions League and nine times in the Premier League.
Therefore, we expect him to warm the bench at Liverpool as well if he does end up moving to Anfield in the summer transfer window.
The only obvious positive about the 20-year-old star is that he can provide the much needed pace to Jurgen Klopp’s offense but he will probably get the nod to start only if one of the first choice attackers is unavailable.
Demarai can play anywhere in the attacking third but naturally, he is a left winger. Brazilian superstar, Coutinho, is the one who plays on the left hand side of the attack for the Reds and he is irreplaceable. So, we have put forward a line up in which Gray will start when Phil us absent.
Here is how Liverpool will line up with Demarai Gray. We have also pointed out other positions that the manager needs to strengthen.
