Good suggestions!Great summary above. Thanks.
A suggestion for the two players: Havertz and Sancho.
In the words of our great manager: Boom!
Havertz would be a phenomenal signing, but personally my top choice at CM would be Auoar, as I think his traits would be an absolutely perfect fit for our squad. He's a very skilful playmaker who is excellent at dribbling in tight spaces and breaking lines when driving up the pitch, and is also quite tenacious off the ball too... all of which are the exact traits you would associate with an ideal No.8 in Klopp's system.
As per this article, we also tried to sign Auoar already 3 years ago (in Klopp's first summer transfer window at the club), so there's clearly interest in him:
I'm also a fan of James Maddison and think it's a shame that we passed on him before he went to Leicester. He has many similarities to Lallana and would therefore be something of a like-for-like replacement, but I guess the timing wasn't quite right with moving for him given how many other CM options we had at the time. I think the ship has sailed on him as Leicester won't sell cheaply.Speaking to Planete Lyon, he explained: ‘Before I signed my first professional contract with Lyon in July 2016, Liverpool were interested in me. ‘I thought about it hard with those close to me on the decision I needed to take, what was better for my progression. ‘I opted for Lyon because it is the club of my heart and my aim was to succeed here, in my city.’
At LW, Sancho would be a great choice, but I don't know how realistic that transfer would be given that he's already at a big club.
Leon Bailey and Bergwijn have been linked regularly, but frankly I think if we were interested in either of them they'd already be here. Bailey would be an interesting fit and is very skilful, though I think his best position is cutting in off the right where we've already got several options. As for Bergwijn, he seems like too much of an individual in his attacking style which obviously isn't what Klopp likes, and I'm also not convinced that his production would keep up at a higher level when he's not running at weak defences every week.
The player I most like at LW is Sessegnon. He's got really good link up play in the attacking third and also loves to drive up the pitch which I think would suit this team really well, not to mention that he can also play LB. Despite the clubs efforts it seems that he wants to stay in London and head to Spurs though.
Timo Werner's contract expires next summer too, and that would be an incredible 'free' signing, but I think he's destined for Bayern unfortunately.
In any case, it'll be really interesting to see what players Edwards and Klopp can pull out of the hat next summer.
