Lallana and Shaqiri set to move on

Adam Lallana and Xherdan Shaqiri will be moving on. Others whose futures hang in the balance include Wijnaldum, Origi and Naby Keita with the Reds willing to listen to reasonable offers for all three. Offloading player who are surplus to requirements will help Liverpool get through the difficult economic times that lie ahead.

As for reinforcements, Liverpool missed out on Timo Werner but Jürgen Klopp has been impressed with Wolves pair Rubén Neves and Adama Traoré. Traoré has the pace which suits Liverpool's high velocity game and would enhance the team's wing play. Klopp has openly expressed his admiration for the Spanish player, and Liverpool have been considering several options to reinforce their attack. Bringing in Neves and Traoré however wouldn't be a cheap operation - according to the UK press, their pair would set the Reds back around 122.5 million euros.

Liverpool's new sponsors

Liverpool are one of the few English clubs who would be able to spend big in the summer transfer market. So far they have only forked out 10.4 million euros this season for Van der Berg and Minamino an next season they will have a new sponsorship deal with Nike which will give them the spending power to compete with  their main rivals.
