As usual, I try to include only players who have been more or less credibly linked with us; Portuguese and Italian newspapers are mostly disregarded as sources. Goalkeepers: Alisson (AS Roma, asking price £60M £70M £80M) Oblak (Atletico Madrid, €100M release clause) Butland (Stoke) Cillessen (Barca) Pope (Burnley, £18M) Centre-backs: De Vrij (Lazio, signed for Internazionale) Pavard (Stuttgart) Lenglet (Sevilla) Leite (Porto) Full-backs: We don’t seem to be in the market for one, for once Deep-lying playmakers: Jorginho (Napoli, £45M+) Max Meyer (Schalke, free) Lewis Cook (Bournemouth, £20M+) Ruben Neves (Wolves) Other central midfielders: Fabinho signed from Monaco for £40M with €5m in add-ons Ndidi (Leicester) Wanyama (Spurs) Doucoure (Watford) Milinkovic-Savic (Lazio, asking £70M+) Lemina (Southampton) Dendoncker (Anderlecht) Berisha (RB Salzburg) Attacking midfielders/playmakers: Lemar (Monaco, signed for Atletico Madrid) Maddison (Norwich, signing for Leicester) Aouar (Lyon) Draxler (PSG) Forwards (any position in front 3): Werner (Leipzig) Pulisic (Dortmund, £80M+) Fekir (Lyon, £53M deal agreed, then collapsed) Ousmane Dembele (Barca, £88M+) Bergwijn (PSV) Moses Simon (Gent, £10M) Shaqiri (Stoke, £12M) I think Real Madrid players should be in a separate category. If any of Isco, Ascensio, Keylor Navas etc become available, I think there will be a long line of suitors and LFC probably among them - but their availability depends solely on Madrid’s internal politics and their own summer targets. So unlike most of the others on this list, Real players are not really “on the market,” but things could change quickly, so you can’t rule them out either. Did I forget anyone? ========= UPD: I added the color-coding, to show my very preliminary and imprecise assessment of whether the player in question would be an immediate improvement over the current first-choice LFC players in his position. Remember, it refers to current level, not potential. Red for instant improvement, orange for competitive, yellow for squad player, green for youth player. A note about categories by position: it's hard to be precise there since many players can play in multiple positions or evolve from one position to another over time. I make a distinction between "deep-lying playmakers" and "other central midfielders" since the former is such a narrow specialist position. In Klopp's 4-3-3 system DLP usually plays in front of the CBs and "other midfielders" are stationed higher up the pitch. The distinction between "attacking midfielders/playmakers" and "forwards" is the most fuzzy one – my test is this: can the player in question play in midfield 3? If yes, they are classed as the former (Oxlade, Coutinho, Lemar, Draxler etc), if not, then it's a "forward" whether he plays in the middle or on the wing.
