Liverpool fans are loving the latest transfer update from the ever-reliable Chris Bascombe, who says Jürgen Klopp wants to sign both a goalkeeper and a number ten this summer.
According to Bascombe’s report in the Telegraph, Klopp “would like to add a number 10 and goalkeeper before the start of the season.”
The Reds looked to have a swoop for Nabil Fekir wrapped up before the World Cup, but the deal collapsed at the final hour.
Fans are desperate for a direct replacement for Philippe Coutinho, who became Klopp’s playmaker from midfield in his final season at Anfield.

With Naby Keita and Fabinho already set to star in the Reds’ midfield, there is a real feeling that a creative number ten would be the cherry on the cake needed to lead a proper title charge.
On the goalkeeper front, the Reds have been linked to just about every goalkeeper under the sun this summer, after Loris Karius’ horrible blunders in the Champions League final.
The defence improved drastically when Virgil van Dijk arrived at Anfield last season, so adding a top goalkeeper this summer would give the Reds a real chance at competing for trophies.
Fans are absolutely loving the news, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
