Jurgen Klopp hands Liverpool two man transfer shortlist which he endorses to replace Sadio Mane

Sadio Mane could leave Liverpool this summer after reports emerged following Liverpool’s Champions League final loss to Real Madrid that the Senegalese international wants to leave.

If Sadio Mane does depart Anfield this summer, former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has advised the club to sign Jarrod Bowen or Bukayo Saka.

With only a year left on his contract, the Senegal international hinted that he will give an update on his future ahead to Saturday night’s Champions League final.

“Come back to me after Saturday and I’ll give you the best answer you want to hear, for sure. It’s special,” Mane told reporters.

However, only hours after their European campaign came to an end with a 1-0 loss to Real Madrid, rumors began to circulate that he might like to go.

Bayern Munich is said to be the favorite for his signature, despite the fact that they are still well short of the price tag that Kop management have set for the 30-year-old.

According to The Athletic, regardless of the offer made, Mane will not be permitted to leave unless a competent replacement appears at Anfield

Along with a new forward, the Spaniard has suggested that Liverpool need a new right-back and central midfielder if they are to go one better in both the Champions League and Premier League next term.

“We definitely need a back-up for Trent Alexander-Arnold. Trent will start so we need a younger player to put Trent on his toes,” Enrique told Genting Casino.

“Max Aarons from Norwich would be a good player to have. He’s not the quality of Trent but he’s a bit like Tsimikas with a similar style.

“We need a starting number eight. Thiago Alcantara is brilliant but he has injuries every season. Keita has the same injury problems, Henderson is getting older so we need a number eight for sure.

“I don’t know too much about the Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni but you look at Luis Diaz and the recruitment usually gets it right.

“We also need a right winger and I think Jarrod Bowen or Bukayo Saka could be a great shout as they’re both not playing in the Champions League so it’s a big possibility.”
