Ridle Baku – Germany:

Jurgen Klopp already has one of the best right-backs in the world.

Thus, helping his side to achieve the 3rd European trophy by scoring 2 goals and providing 3 assist in his 6 appearances.

Fabio Vieira – Portugal:

“A playmaker who creates a lot of chances. An excellent link between midfield and attack“. The 21-year-old possesses shades of Bruno Fernandes in his playing style. Liverpool lacks a true creative midfielder and therefore he can be the one filling those shoes for the Reds.

Florian Wirtz – Germany:

The 18-year-old German prodigy is already a regular part of the starting 11 for Bayer Leverkusen. The teenager is so-called the next Kai Havertz. Playing 2,700 league minutes last season the German midfielder provided impressive six league goals and a further four assists. Looking at his performance in the tournament one can say he is totally versatile player. His best asset is perhaps his outstanding technical ability. he’s great at operating in between the lines and picking up the ball in tight spaces inside the opposition’s half.

Liverpool will be eager to get such quality players in their squad before the start of next season. It will also provide a lot of depth to their squad.
