Liverpool returned to form with a stunning 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield.
Sadio Mane netted twice to down a rampant Spurs and Liverpool’s main aim for the rest of the season has to be to secure one of four Champions League places.
German boss Jurgen Klopp is hopeful that one day he can win a first Premier League title for Liverpool, but his squad will need lots of work if that dream is to be realised.
Liverpool supporters think that the club aren’t a million miles away and a few additions in the summer could make them contenders next year.
Liverpool are in desperate need of a central defender who is understanding of the demands of the English game and Keane would offer that.
Keane has been in fine form for Burnley this season and he looks destined to play for a bigger club at some stage in his career.
The former Manchester United defender was dominant in the air, quick on the deck and sure as a tackler. He was also decisive when dealing with danger, often opting to simply blast the ball clear, rather than taking the risk to play out from the back.
The 24-year-old would be a class signing that the club should do all they can to sign the youngster.
Another area that Liverpool really need to address is between the posts and a new goalkeeper is a must in the summer.
England stopped Butland hasn’t played for Stoke City this season thanks to a troublesome ankle injury but he is nearing ever closer to full fitness.
The 24-year-old has shown superb reflexes and top-drawer shot-stopping capabilities throughout the years and until the Reds sign a quality goalkeeper they can kiss goodbye to any hopes of winning the league.
If Liverpool should secure a place in next season’s Champions League then it opens the door to the club attracting a better calibre of player.
The Reds’ number one target should be Reus if they do finish in the top four and Klopp would relish a reunion with the German.
For much of the campaign, Reus has been sat on the sidelines because of injury problems. However, when he’s fit and firing, he’s one of the most feared attacking players in Europe.
Here’s a reminder of why:
Since coming back into the Dortmund first team, Reus has added another dimension to their attacking play and could be an excellent addition for Merseysiders.
