Is a midfield three of Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita and Abdoulaye Doucoure realistic for next season?
Well, yes, considering Hendo’s our captain, Keita has already signed and Watford have decided to cash in Doucoure.
They want to offload the Frenchman this summer while his value is at its highest and have named £40m as the price it’ll cost to bring him from Vicarage Road to Anfield.
Spurs and Arsenal are also monitoring his situation, but for us, £40m is simply too steep for a player who’ll only bolster Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
We’d much prefer to go slightly above the £40m fee and sign Napoli’s Jorginho, who’ll cost around £52m, or if we’re insistent on staying in the Premier League, secure Leicester’s Wilfried Ndidi, who’s more talented than Doucoure.
Although Keita is arriving, Emre Can is certain to leave, so we need another central midfielder for 2018/19.
On top of that, a new playmaker to replace Coutinho, a goalkeeper to replace Simon Mignolet and an elite central defender would be great.
