Four players at Euro 2024 Liverpool should be targeting in the transfer market

With a new head coach on the way, it's time for the club to bring in some new players, and where better to start our search than a clash between Europe's best?

This past season, Liverpool's roster core showed that it still has plenty left in the tank, but also that there are real holes in the armor that need to be repaired.

This is doubly true given the fact that there will be a new coaching style in place with Arne Slot taking over, making it worth bringing in some players that fit his philosophy to support the core built around Klopp for the past near-decade.

When there are big international tournaments going on throughout the summer, the stars of those events will inevitably be a big part of any sort of transfer discussions.

Let's talk about some of the standouts from Euro 2024 who could be good additions to Slot's squad before the summer ends.

Riccardo Calafiori | Italy | Bologna | Transfermarkt value: €30 million

Let's start with the player without whom this article would be incomplete; Italy and Bologna's Riccardo Calafiori, the Serie A breakout star who is widely expected to get his big-club shot after this summer.

Still just 22 years of age, he's played just one full season as a starter in Serie A, but could be a great investment as the club builds its next generation of defense.

Calafiori has drawn early comparisons to Paolo Maldini, which are of course completely undue, but do correctly point to a versatility and style of play that make him intriguing.

The rising star can play both centrally and on the left, providing a steady presence at the back (embarrassing own goal against Spain nonwithstanding) and danger coming forward, as we saw with his assist for Mattia Zaccagni's iconic late equalizer against Croatia.

Calafiori has progress to make before he can be compared to Liverpool's current defensive greats, but with age setting in for the Reds' back line, bringing him in to learn from the legends now would be a wise, forward-thinking move. `
