Liverpool is set for its most important transfer window this summer since Jürgen Klopp arrived as manager.

Having concluded what was a hugely disappointing season, especially after coming so close to a historic quadruple, the pressure is on the club now to strengthen for the 2023/24 campaign, and get itself back to challenging the likes of Manchester City.

With new sporting director Jörg Schmadtke now in place, the search for new players can begin in earnest, although Liverpool does seem to be well on in its efforts with the likes of Alexis Mac Allister, Ryan Gravenberch and Mason Mount all linked with moves to Anfield.

Twist in Sadio Mané transfer claim

With leagues across Europe drawing to a close, we’ve already enjoyed a dramatic end to the Bundesliga season after Borussia Dortmund handed the title to Bayern Munich on the final day.

It means former Liverpool man Sadio Mané has some silverware after his first season in Germany, although the Senegal international’s future with the perennial Bundesliga champions has come under question after a mixed campaign.

Liverpool have reportedly entered talks to sign Manu Kone from Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach, in a deal that could cost €40-45m.

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on the 22-year-old Frenchman but Jurgen Klopp’s team appear to be leading the race.

According to German outlet Bild, Liverpool have been in contact with Kone’s representatives and have expressed their interest in a summer transfer.

Kone has registered 31 appearances for Borussia Monchengladbach this season, who finished 10th in the Bundesliga.

Borussia Monchengladbach want €40-45m for Kone, who is under contract until 2025, while the German club have the option to extend his deal for a further year.

It is believed that Borussia Monchengladbach want to use the fee they receive for Kone to help fund moves for new players in the summer window.

It could be a busy summer for Liverpool, who have been linked to several players as they look to return to the top four after a disappointing 2022-23 campaign.

The Reds are looking to bring in two central midfielders this summer after withdrawing from the race to sign Jude Bellingham.

Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister is expected to swap the south coast for Anfield and they have also opened talks to sign Nice’s Khephren Thuram – although the the deal could be complicated by Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s potential takeover of United.

Liverpool had been linked to Chelsea’s Mason Mount but it appears that United are now favourites to land his signature.
