Reports also claim that Liverpool has reportedly made contact through an intermediary to explore a potential deal to sign Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho this summer. They're also linked with players like Martin Odegard, Saul Niguez, Adam Traore, and a few others.
If rumors are anything to go by, Liverpool will surely be having a strong squad next season.
As such, Dozo.ng has predicted how Arsenal could line up in 2021/22 if they get those deals over the line:
Liverpool's attack next season is not expected to change. The trio of Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah, and Sadio Mane is expected to continue leading the Reds attack next season.
The likely change we might see is Diogo Jota replacing Roberto in the CF position. Recall that the Portuguese star benched the Brazilian in some matches during the latter part of last season before he got injured.
Club's captain, Jordan Henderson is expected to be a starter in midfield next season. Fabinho Enrique, who mostly played as a center-back last season, will have the chance to play in his preferred defensive midfield role.
If Martin Odegaard eventually comes, he's expected to fill the void left by Dutch international, Georgina Wijnaldum.
For the backline, Virgil Van Dijk is expected to return to full fitness before next season. As such, he'll surely keep his place in the Centre Back position.
He's likely to partner with Englishman, Joe Gomez or Joel Matip. However, if they successfully secure the signing of Milan Skriniar, the Slovakian international might displace the two in the starting XI.
The duo of Alexander Arnold and Robertson is expected to keep their place next season. Here's an illustration of the lineup below:
This potential lineup surely looks good on paper. With the right tactics and motivation, Jurgen Klopp's men should be competing effectively in the UEFA Champions League and domestic competitions next season.
It's an obvious fact that Liverpool's campaign last season was marred by a series of long-term injuries, especially to their defenders. As such, they'll be hoping to avoid such a scenario again by investing in quality players this summer.
With this line-up, where do you think Liverpool will be next season?... Share your thoughts below.
