Liverpool have rightly been lauded as leaders in the transfer market in
recent years with a recruitment strategy that has seen the team’s rise to the top, accelerated by the signings of Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker, among others.

Times have changed, though, and there are very few players who Klopp could now sign who would be considered as instant picks, especially in the attacking positions.

Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe would definitely walk into the team, but there aren’t many others.

Liverpool would love to sign the 21-year-old, but they would have to rip up their financial blueprint to even enter the conversation to bring in the €200m-rated forward.

How Liverpool take that leap forward and strengthen while they are on top is a challenge that Jurgen Klopp and the club’s transfer committee must take on.
