While some may think it was a mistake – especially given the elimination of the Reds Champions League – there is little talk of what Jurgen Klopp’s team have achieved in the Premier League this season .
However, once the campaign is over, it looks like Liverpool will be looking to invest again in their team. Several players have been linked to the European champions and we decided to analyze the last supposed targets.
The central defender is just one of the many young stars developed at the Atalanta Academy in recent years. But Bastoni only made four first-team appearances for La Dea before Juventus signed it for an undisclosed amount.
He returned to Atalanta on loan for the 2017/18 campaign and spent the last term in Parma before returning to Inter last summer.
He started the season as the club’s fourth-choice center back, but managed to oust Diego Godin from the starting XI in December after gaining the confidence of Antonio Conte.
With Liverpool prepared to cash Dejan Lovren this summer, a hole in Klopp’s team will be created. But according to Passione Inter, the Reds have already drawn up a shortlist of three men to replace the Croatian.
It includes Dayot Upamecano of RB Leipzig, Jose Gimenez and Bastoni of Atletico Madrid.
Liverpool may have plans to sign a central defender this summer, but it is unlikely to be Bastoni, the young central defender who has promised his future at Inter.
“I always said it was a dream come true for me to wear this shirt,” said Bastoni during a question and answer session on Instagram.
“I have bonded with my teammates and my current roommate is [Milan] Skriniar. Inter is my home. I care about this club. I want to win things here. In ten years, I still see myself at Inter, with trophies in the cabinet and perhaps as captain. “
Coutinho doesn’t need to be introduced to Liverpool fans. The Brazilian dazzled during his six years at Anfield before leaving for Barcelona in January 2018.
It was a transfer that did not work. Coutinho is currently on loan for the entire season at Bayern Munich and Barça will seek to unload it this summer.
the Standard Evening Barcelona are so determined to withdraw Coutinho from their payroll this summer that they are ready to accept an offer of around £ 70 million for the Brazilian international.
The Catalan club has agreed to pay Coutinho in Liverpool for less than half the £ 143m.
Liverpool appear to be on the market for another striker this summer with Jadon Sancho and Timo Werner perpetually linked. However, there is little to suggest that the club is interested in Coutinho.
It may sound hard, but the Reds have evolved. A return to the Premier League for the Brazilian cannot be ruled out, however, Chelsea being supposed to speak with their agent Kia Joorabchian.
Liverpool have long expected the young striker to make an impact on Anfield’s first team, but their development was hindered by an ankle and knee ligament injury suffered in January 2018.
Brewster missed nearly a year of football and struggled to make it into Klopp’s first team when he returned. That’s why in January he was loaned to Swansea City, which is coached by England’s former under-17 boss Steve Cooper.
And the 20-year-old had started ten league games and scored four goals for the Swans before the campaign was suspended.
According to Football Insider, Leeds United will make an offer for Brewster if Liverpool is ready to lend it after the 2019/20 campaign.
The championship leaders were linked to a move for the striker in January, but Brewster chose to move to South Wales.
Given the uncertainty surrounding the rest of the 2019/20 campaign, it is unlikely that Liverpool will have a firm plan in place for Brewster at this point.
However, if the season is over and Leeds wins a promotion, a Premier League loan could help the youngster’s development and give him a better chance of becoming a regular at Liverpool.
