As we come into the summer months, attention goes to the transfer window, otherwise known as silly season.

Speculation after speculation, player after player have been linked to Liverpool. It is safe to say that it is a squad game now, not just the first XI.

Here, we will take a look at what positions need bolstering for Liverpool to be competitive as they chase four trophies next season. Add to the mix the exciting crop of youngsters who broke through last season. How does that shape transfer requirements?


It is rumoured that Liverpool has offered third-choice goalkeeper Adrian an extension, but the club has not announced anything yet.

It is also reported that Caoimhin Kelleher is ready to become a number one goalkeeper. This would probably have to be away from Liverpool.

So, the first hole that needs to be plugged is an able and steady deputy to Alisson. At 32 years old, Alisson is at his prime as a goalkeeper, but he is known to have spells on the sidelines through injury. Therefore, the potential replacement for Kelleher, should he go, is one to watch.


There is currently a Joel Matip shaped hole in the squad with Matip leaving on a free. There appeared to be a partnership forming between Virgil van Dijk and Jarell Quansah last season.

However with a new manager coming on board he may have a different preference. While there is back up in Ibrahima Konate and Joe Gomez, it is worth noting that Konate does suffer from injuries on a regular basis which makes a case for a new Centre Back a strong one.

At left-back we have an aging Andy Robertson. His game is based on bombing up and down that left side which makes him a higher risk to muscle injury.

This was seen last year and proved to be a significant miss for the team. His deputy Kostas Tsimikas has been hit and miss since coming to Anfield. While there is potential for Tsimikas to step up there might be a need to find a long-term replacement for Robertson.
