Liverpool Transfer Targets List Summer 2020
Liverpool transfer targets list Summer 2020? Here we look at the latest news about Liverpool transfer targets list for winter 2020. We point out football players that are considered on top at Liverpool transfer target list this Summer. So which footballers are on the Liverpool FC transfer targets list this Summer?
Liverpool Transfer Targets List 2020
Liverpool have had a brilliant season under Jurgen Klopp. The Reds are currently leaders of the Premier League table by a considerable margin and is on course to lifting the trophy (unless the season gets cancelled). Liverpool also won the FIFA Club World Cup recently, making this a first Club world cup title in their entire history. However, fans would argue that they do not have a strong enough squad to compete for multiple titles – as evident from their very quick exits from the FA Cup, Champions League and Carabao Cup this season.
Bringing in suitable players to serve as either backup or possibly even strengthen some of the current positions will be helpful. Let’s take a look at some of the players who Liverpool are looking at for the summer of 2020.
Top 5 Liverpool Transfer Targets List 2020
So with a low investment window getting over, what are Liverpool going to do about going back to make the squad stronger? With that in mind- who will be on the Liverpool Transfer Targets list this Summer? Well, you’re going to find out.
5. Ousmane Dembele
Ousmane Dembele should be one of the top transfer targets for Liverpool.
It seems as though Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has one of eyes set on Ousmane Demebele, the Barcelona forward. He’s not alone – giants like Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool are all monitoring the Frenchman’s situation at Camp Nou. His constant battle with injuries and previous run-ins with the club on disciplinary issues has made his Barca future uncertain. If it continues, Quique Setien might be forced to pull the plug on him.
Why should Liverpool sign Ousmane Dembele?
Jurgen Klopp has quite transparently voiced his adoration for Dembele’s style of play. He believes the 22-year-old can be a tremendous lift for his side. He can fill in as an option to Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino forthright or even play in an attacking midfield role centrally. Barcelona is supposedly open to authorizing a deal if Liverpool’s offer is in abundance of €100m (£85m).
4. Evan N’Dicka
Sky Sports reported on Liverpool’s interests in the Eintracht Frankfurt defender and within good reason. Dejan Lovren’s time at Anfield is nearing an end and a replacement for the Croatian might be necessary. There is no doubt over the prospects of Joe Gomez partnering up with Virgil van Dijk at centre-back but the Reds could use a left-footed versatile centre-back. N’Dicka has been a regular for the Bundesliga outfit ever since he made the switch from Auxerre in 2018. He is a France U21 international and developing fast to be a resolute defensive force.
Arsenal, Sevilla, Valencia and the two Milan clubs are also pursuing a deal for him.
3. Layvin Kurzawa
More than any star signings, Liverpool need cover at left-back. Andy Robertson is one of the best in his position but he cannot be asked to play 50 games a season every year. The Scotsman already revealed back in November how he had to play with an injury for over 2 weeks and later had to pull out of international duty. It is only time before fatigue starts to show and that would be detrimental to Liverpool’s game moving forward.
Kurzawa is due to leave PSG after the 2019/20 campaign after his contract expires. He was signed from AS Monaco in 2015 for €23 million and now, is available for free. Once, a highly coveted Frenchman, Kurzawa has fallen off the mark in recent years but he is still a decent option at left-back. He has enough top-flight experience to adapt to Reds’ attacking style of play and is also very capable going forward.
2. Jadon Sancho
Manchester City’s former player, Jadon Sancho was there in the club for a while, but never go a chance to play in the matches. Even if he did, it was very rare. It became tough for him to prove himself. Soon enough, he left for Dortmund and became a great player. And now, the big clubs noticed and are after him. Liverpool is also one such club. He is young and he will a great addition to the squad.
Sancho’s electric pace, dribbling and creative abilities will unravel any Premier League’s front three let alone, Liverpool. His game has developed at a meteoric rate and might just be destined for great individual honours in the near future. Given, Liverpool’s position right now in Europe and their financial strengths, it makes sense to a degree to try and sign Sancho. He could be their talisman for years to come.
However, Klopp has admitted that at the rate at which Sancho is being sold for – a whopping £150 million – Liverpool will find it extremely hard to pay for that. The Liverpool boss knows that cost will a big issue – “100 per cent.” And it’s true since Sancho is one of the most expensive players on the market this Summer.
When asked about Sancho, Klopp replied: “He’s a very good player. I have no clue where these kind of things are coming from, but it cannot come from us because we never speak about it. If we would be involved, nobody would know about it apart from a person who wouldn’t speak about it. There’s nothing to say. Cost? That’s one issue, 100 per cent that would be an issue. But there’s nothing to say about it.”
Bayern Munich have almost given up on the players’ fate. Their head Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has openly admitted that Thiago has asked to leave. The 29 year old will cost around 30 million and would be an ideal addition to the Liverpool team which needs a different dimension to the midfield.
He has the brains to pick passes that can open defences and at the same time has positional discipline.
