As the business end of the season draws closer, attention will gradually start focusing on how Liverpool will begin to rebuild from a disappointing Premier League title defence. There will be inevitable calls for Jurgen Klopp to dip into the transfer market to strengthen his squad, and over the next few weeks and months there will be a host of names that are supposedly on their shortlist.

Koopmeiners is certainly well thought of in Holland, but the knowledge of his talent is yet to really reach these shores.

Versatility is a trait that Klopp likes, but it remains to be seen whether there is any genuine interest in the midfielder’s services. Who? Patson Daka, Red Bull Salzburg striker. Where? Reports in the Daily Star claim that Liverpool have a fight on their hands to sign the highly rated striker this summer.

What? Daka is certainly a talented striker, and he has definitely filled the shoes of Erling Haaland following his departure for Borussia Dortmund last January. The 22-year-old has got pace to run in behind and clearly has an eye for goal, which combined makes him a valuable asset in the transfer market. Will Liverpool use their ties with the Red Bull franchise to bring Daka to Anfield? We’ll have to wait and see. Who? Nikola Milenkovic, Fiorentina defender. Where? According to Corriere Fiorentina , both Liverpool and Manchester United have decided to cool their interest in the centre-back. Both Premier League giants have been linked with the defender in recent weeks, suggesting that his recent performances may have gone against him. What? Liverpool are likely to bring in a new centre-back this summer, but who that will be remains to be seen. RB Leipzig’s Ibrahima Konate is on a five-man shortlist of possible targets that the Anfield club are looking at, but there is no guarantee of who the club will sign. There is also the situation with Ozan Kabak, who continues to impress and seems to improve with each game he plays. A situation to keep an eye on, that’s for sure.
