Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp managed to end the summer transfer window at the beginning of the season with a positive net spend, and if the Reds strive hard to end the current season on top-4 finish, it will be a huge achievement in this cash-rich Premier League. However, the Anfield giants are playing at the highest level and the German boss knows that he will need to bring in new acquisitions to add some proven quality in order to strengthen the squad for new challenges. This has seen them get linked with some of the biggest names in Europe for a move in the summer.
And according to the Liverpool Echo, most trusted Liverpool’s sources, Jurgen Klopp get £200m transfer kitty to boost his team. The weakness Liverpool is facing need to be add addressed. So who can the former Borussia Dortmund manager look on to in such scenario? Here are three big names Football Weeks believes will turnaround the current Liverpool squad this summer.
A transfer kitty of £200m will be carefully spent on the entire team and Jurgen Klopp will definitely know that they need a beast in front of goal next season and the Gabonese could be the perfect fit. The duo have both worked together during Klopp spell with Dortmund, Aubameyang could be tempted for a reunion with his former boss, even as Metro claimed he suggested that he is only going to leave Iduna Park for the Bernabeu.
No one can tell, Real Madrid may yet swoop for Aubameyang in the summer but the Reds should definitely try their hand at landing the 27-year-old at the end of the season. The Gabon striker is a top-class goal-poacher, who will have no trouble adjusting to life at Anfield and could turn Klopp’s side into genuine title contenders next season.
James Rodriguez (Real Madrid)
James Rodriguez had already been linked with a move to Liverpool due to limited football playing time with Real Madrid. The Colombian international has not been able to settle down to life at the Santiago Bernabeu and his yet to nail a place in Zinedien Zidane’s starting XI. With Zidane planning on bringing new additions to the club in the summer, the 25-year-old may no longer have chance with Real next season. Therefore, moving to Anfield could prove as right decision for James. With £47m, he could end up with Liverpool, but that will their record signing.
Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal)
Arsenal recent loss to Crystal Palace could be the nail in the coffin for the Gunners who might fail to qualify for the Champions League and if Liverpool should end this season on a top-4 finish, there is no reason why they should not spend big on Alexis Sanchez, who seems frustrated with the North London club. The former Barcelona man has 22 goals and 18 assists in all competitions this season and would be available at around £60m. He will a mind-blowing addition to Liverpool’s attack.
