With the Copa America final taking place on July 15 and the Euros the day before, the meeting with the La Liga side should see the vast majority of Slot’s options available for selection.

There’s a good chance we could be waiting on a handful of names, of course, given the quality present in nations like Argentina and France in both tournaments.

We should see some new signings on board

There’s also a very strong possibility of witnessing a couple (or more) of fresh faces in the squad facing Real Betis at the end of July.

Nico Williams of Athletic Bilbao is the latest in a long line of names to be linked with a switch to Merseyside.

Likewise, there remains hope of completing a deal for Leny Yoro despite heavy competition for the Frenchman.
