Fresh report reveals the sort of player Klopp wants to sign this summer

Following a disappointing campaign it’s no surprise to hear that Jurgen Klopp is wanting to strengthen his Liverpool squad this summer.

Adding reinforcements in midfield is the priority but with the signing of Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton completed earlier this week Football Insider are now reporting that there is a ‘real chance’ our German tactician signs a ‘versatile left-sided option’ in defence.

For the final few months of the season Trent Alexander-Arnold was deployed in an inverted role which seen him operate as a central midfielder when we’re in possession.

The change in system resulted in Andy Robertson operating as a left-sided centre half alongside Virgil van Dijk and Ibou Konate.

The new system somewhat limits the Scotsman in an attacking sense and although he’s still a vital player for the Reds it appears that a new defender more suited to operating at both centre half and full-back could be signed.

Alexander-Arnold’s new role helped Liverpool remain unbeaten in their final 10 games of the season and although we missed out on a top four finish we can expect to see the same system being used next term.

Klopp and Co. have been linked with moves for some left-footed defensive options this summer such as RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiol, Frankfurt’s Evan Ndicka and Wolfsburg’s Micky van de Ven.

It remains to be seen what further business we complete this summer but if we can sign a couple more midfielders and a quality defender there’s no reason why next season can’t be a successful one.
