Jurgen Klopp is keen on adding further core to his midfield following the exit of all of James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain this summer, with the likes of Ryan Gravenberch, Khephren Thuram and Manu Kone linked with a move to Anfield
But it is the areas in attack that the Reds are also seemingly happy to bolster too, with Roberto Firmino having exited the club and Mohamed Salah’s eventual replacement being touted even if the Egyptian is still in his best years at present.
With pre-season now just under a month away, more and more whispers have begun to intesify and with more bodies expected through the door, it is again set to be an eye-catching couple of weeks for Liverpool supporters.
Victor Osimhen to Liverpool this summer
Napoli star Victor Osimhen and his team are said to be preparing talks with up to three Premier League clubs in the coming weeks, with Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea all said to hold an interest in the 24-year-old forward.
Osimhen finished as the top goalscorer in Serie A last season and helped the Azzurri to a first Italian top-flight title since 1990 with a whopping 26 goals in 32 games.
According to reports via Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri, the Reds are among three Premier League teams that have pencilled in talks.
Furthermore, according to reports from The Mirror, Liverpool are interested in signing Juventus forward Federico Chiesa.
Klopp is known to be a long-term admirer of the Italian international, given his sublime performances during the EURO 2020 which saw Roberto Mancini’s team beat England on penalties.
With a fee of around £40-45m cited, Chiesa has continued to flourish with Italian side Juventus following his move from Fiorentina and could now seek pastures new given the club’s ongoing off-field problems.
Newcastle United are another Premier League side who are also said to be keeping tabs on the ongoing situation regarding the 25-year-old.
