Jurgen Klopp’s men fought hard and earned Champions League qualification after finishing fourth in the Premier League last season.
Now, the German manager needs quality depth in all his key departments and for that he must sign top players.
The Reds suffered big time when Sadio Mane was absent last season and therefore, they need to sign a top playmaker. Someone like Mohamed Salah will be perfect and according to reports (via KingFut), the Egyptian star is close to completing Liverpool move.
On the other hand, Liverpool lack a strong defensive midfielder in the squad. Jordan Henderson did well in the DM role last season but he is not a specialist in that position.
Moreover, the England international was mainly absent in the second half of the campaign and did not feature after suffering a foot injury against Spurs in February.
In such a situation, the Merseysiders need a strong holding midfield star and they want Porto youngster Ruben Neves (via A Bola).
Klopp mainly preferred the 4-3-3 formation last season and we can expect the same setup next season as well. Here is how Liverpool could line up with Neves and Salah.
