Although Liverpool may have missed out on the Premier League title by the slimmest of margins, welcoming Champions League football back to Anfield for the first time since 2010 will be a more than acceptable consolation prize for the Merseyside faithful.

The added burden of the European competition however means that the Reds roster requires significant strengthening ahead of next season. And although a number of inspiring young midfielders, such as Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho have enjoyed breakthrough campaigns at Anfield this season, Liverpool could certainly do with some extra quality and depth in the middle of the park.

With that in mind, here’s a look at Liverpool’s ‘Dream Midfield’ for next term, combining some of the Anfield outfit’s best performers this season with transfer targets fans would love to see join the club this summer.
