Jurgen Klopp is targeting two signings this summer after discovering he will be given a modest transfer budget, reports say.
Liverpool spent £163million last year on the likes of Alisson and Naby Keita, but the Reds are in for a quiet window this time round.
Despite being linked with RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner and Bayer Leverkusen’s Julian Brandt, Liverpool will not sign any players who will cost more than the £13m they spent on Xherdan Shaqiri.
That is according to BBC journalist David Ornstein, who claims Klopp will aim to sign a back-up left-back and striker this summer.
Alberto Moreno and Nathaniel Clyne are set to depart Liverpool this summer and Klopp will need to bring in cover for his first-choice full-backs, Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Daniel Sturridge is also tipped for a summer exit, which will prompt Klopp to find an attacker. Klopp wants a versatile forward who can play across a front three, rather than an out-and-our No.9.
Rhian Brewster is highly rated by the senior coaching staff and is in contention for a promotion to the first-team squad after recovering from a serious knee injury.
After missing out on the Premier League title by a point, Liverpool only want to consolidate their squad rather than make any major additions.
Unless injury strikes or a major target becomes available, Liverpool will make only one or two signings, depending on Sturridge’s decision.
