Watch out Premier League, Liverpool mean business this summer.
Jurgen Klopp has made his intentions very clear since the transfer window opened by quickly sealing a £44 million move for Monaco midfielder Fabinho.
Naby Keita is also due to arrive in the coming weeks while Nabil Fekir continues to be linked with a big-money move from Lyon.
Klopp capturing Fekir would take his tally to three signings, though ex-Liverpool player John Aldridge thinks the German needs to make five.
In reaction to his old club securing Fabinho’s services alongside Keita, Aldridge tweeted that they need three more.
“What great timing to sign a player (who other big clubs were after) who will enhance our squad next year!” the 59-year-old wrote.
“Shows we mean business. Need probably a few more and we know the positions! That’s two quality players in. Need 3 more.”
SPLASH THE CASH
A new world-class goalkeeper is next on the agenda for Klopp, who is also looking to bring in a decent back-up for Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.
Liverpool’s back-up going forward currently consists of Danny Ings and 20-year-old Dominic Solanke, so reinforcements are certainly needed.
And according to the Liverpool Echo, Klopp has identified a new target: Gent winger and Nigeria international Moses Simon.
Simon, 22, has a year remaining on his contract in Belgium and could be available for just £10 million, which has alerted a number of Premier League clubs.
Liverpool must act quick and based on a video that’s doing the rounds on social media, he would be well worth the investment.
It turns out Simon is absolutely rapid. In the video below, he plays a one-two with a teammate before bursting 60-odd metres down the pitch and finishing past the goalkeeper.

How’s that for a celebration, too? Simon looks the part and at £10 million Liverpool should lodge a bid sooner rather than later.
And besides, you can never have too much pace going forward.
