The two signings Liverpool should make to give Jurgen Klopp boost for 2019/20 season

LIVERPOOL boss Jurgen Klopp could change his mind on making more signings this summer after yet another dismal pre-season performance, but who should he target before the window closes?

Liverpool slipped to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli on Sunday for their third defeat in four pre-season fixtures.

The European champions have also lost to Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla, as well as being held by Sporting Lisbon, and fans have hoped for another incoming deal to boost positivity.

The transfer window will slam shut on August 8 and remain closed till January, and their comprehensive 3-0 defeat could force club chiefs to act.

Express Sport have picked out two signings that Liverpool should sign to boost their chances of claiming a maiden Premier League title in May without having to break the bank.

Ryan Sessegnon

Ryan Sessegnon seems to have burnt his bridges at Fulham after informing the club of his desire to return to the top flight before the Championship season begins next week.

The 19-year-old has played more than 100 times for the west London club and scored more than 20 goals, which is not bad for a player that has nine more months as a teenager.

The 2017/18 Championship Player of the Year is known for his versatility down the left side of the pitch, and would offer back-up in both left-back and left-midfield.

Sessegnon grew up a Liverpool fan and would love a chance to play regularly at Anfield, and could be available for just £20m as Tottenham continue to stall on a potential deal.

Dani Alves

On the flip side of Sessegnon’s youth, Klopp could bring Dani Alves to Anfield on a short-term deal to provide cover for Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The 36-year-old proved his worth for Paris Saint-Germain last year as he made 23 appearances en route to becoming the most decorated player of all time.

The Brazil legend has played alongside Roberto Firmino and Alisson on international duty and will also have inside knowledge on how Klopp’s men could pip Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City to the league title having played under the Spaniard at Barcelona.

Although his wages are likely to be high, the free transfer won’t take away any of Liverpool’s transfer budget if they are to make a shock late deal.
