25 Players Liverpool Must Target If They Are To Finally Win The Premier League
As much as Liverpool fans revelled in conquering the Champions League in early June, the Premier League remains the Holy Grail for Kopites, with the Reds stuck on 18 league titles since 1990.
Not even a club record points haul of 97 was enough to land the coveted trophy in 2018/19, with an exceptional Manchester City side going one better.
While Jurgen Klopp has some of the best players in the world in their respective positions, there were times last season when a lack of depth cost Liverpool, particularly in games where opposition defences manned the barricades.
A winger, a centre forward and a creative central midfielder are likely to be among Klopp’s main targets this summer, while the German should also look at beefing up the goalkeeper and left-back positions should anything keep Alisson or Andrew Robertson out of action.
Here are 25 players that Liverpool should target if they are to be finally crowned Premier League champions…
The experienced Portuguese goalkeeper was among many Wolves players who impressed on the club’s return to the Premier League, keeping eight clean sheets and conceding only 46 goals. The 31-year-old is an excellent shot stopper with quick reflexes and has been a solid, low-risk presence in goal for club and country.
While Alisson would be almost impossible to displace, Liverpool need a more reliable backup than Simon Mignolet and Euro 2016 winner Patricio fits the bill.
His 12-year career with Sporting Lisbon and Portugal enabled him to gain plenty of big-game experience and he would present some welcome competition for the Brazilian netminder.
