5 Players Liverpool can sign! Who are the 5 Players Liverpool can sign in 2021?
Note: I have selected players that are realistically attainable. Of course, I would put players like Lionel Messi if I wanted to, but I’ve selected players that Liverpool could actually sign (and have been linked to in the past). I’ve also considered positions that need strengthening the most such as strike force squad players and midfielders and full-backs. So here are the Players Liverpool should sign.
5 Players Liverpool Can Sign
Liverpool’s recruitment has been commended by experts and pundits for a number of reasons – they have been cost-efficient, productive and led to trophies over the past 5 years under Jurgen Klopp. The Reds are arguably the best team in Europe right now with players like Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold in their lineup.
However, Liverpool do not necessarily have the strongest bench to compete for multiple trophies in one season. That was a part of a reason behind them exiting the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and the Champions League in 2019/20. Here are the 5 players that Liverpool should look to sign this summer –
5. Ousmane Dembele, Barcelona (Winger) – Players Liverpool Can Sign
The Barcelona winger is an outcast at Nou Camp. He is not wanted at the club but they are stuck with him. Barcelona had to sign him long back because Neymar had left the club. Barcelona were desperate for a replacement star and Dembele was tipped to be the next big thing in football at that moment. It cost Barcelona their record transfer money ever spent to sign a player.
However, Dembele was bad in training, did not show up at times and picked up bad habits at Nou Camp. So naturally, he was not involved much in games and played bad whenever included. He has still failed to get going and a move a new manager might help. Klopp has a habit of setting players straight and if he can get a talented player like Dembele to focus, Liverpool will be unstoppable. But he will be expensive. Maybe a loan move?
4. Youri Tielemans – Players Liverpool Can Sign
He was brought in from the Belgian league by Leicester City. Prior to that in the national team level, he broke into the national camp and the playing eleven. This was a major achievement given that KDB, Dembele and co play in that midfield.
Tielemans’ move to Leicester City was a smart coup by the Foxes. He played brilliantly for them ever since his debut and has formed a formidable midfield partnership with James Maddison.
Tielemans has the ability to play the classic number 8 role and run up and down while being creative on the ball. He would be a good addition for Liverpool, since the Reds might be set to lose Gini Wijnaldum whose contract is running down at the club with Barcelona interested in him.
Tielemans along with Henderson and Fabinho will be a brilliant midfield line up.
3. David Brooks – Players Liverpool Can Sign

Liverpool are interested in acquiring Bournemouth midfielder for a reported bid of £35m, according to The Sun. However, the race behind this 23 year old is not easy. Liverpool will have to fight off several clubs who are interested in the midfielder, including Leicester, Crystal Palace, West Ham, Tottenham and Everton. However, it is most likely that Liverpool might be the ones to be able to afford the price tag.
Brooks is considered to be an ideal replacement for Adam Lallana, who left Anfield recently. With Bournemouth relegated, Liverpool might get him on the cheap as well.
2. Ismaila Sarr – Players Liverpool can sign

Watford is prepared to sell their winger, but they aren’t ready to price him low. The Hornets are demanding more than £40m for the 22 year old forward. Ismaila Sarr has impressed in the first season of joining Watford from Stade Rennais, scoring five goals in his debut season. Further, the main reason Liverpool is majorly interested him is because he’s the one who ended Liverpool winning streak and brought them to a loss by scoring 2 goals in a 3-0 Liverpool defeat in February 2020.
He managed to end their unbeaten run in the 2019-20 Premier League campaign, creating history that night. Liverpool might face competition from Crystal Palace over his transfer, but it’s unlikely that Palace will be able to rack up enough cash for him.
His price tag too however, might be lowered given that Watford are now relegated and playing in the Championship.
1. Diego Carlos – Players Liverpool can sign

Sevilla defender Diego Carlos is hot on Liverpool’s radar right now. The 27 year old defender is seen to be a perfect target as a replacement for Dejan Lovren. Loven left Anfield in July and moved to Zenit St Petersburg for a reported fee of £10.9 million. Jurgen Klopp sees potential in the defender, who is gaining quick interest from top flight clubs, including Manchester City and Arsenal.
However, Liverpool has been informed that in order to sign the Sevilla defender, his £68m release clause must be fulfilled. The Reds will have to battle Manchester City and Arsenal for the Carlos and Liverpool will have to pull a bunny out of the bag now to sign him.
