Liverpool’s ideal team now includes Andre and Romeo Lavia after three further transfers.

Andre’s transfer accelerated, Romeo Lavia signed – Liverpool’s dream team after three more transfers


Liverpool still have a few transfers to make before Jurgen Klopp can believe his side are capable of a fight at the top.

As the days draw closer to the start of the new Premier League season, Liverpool still have a lot of work to do in the transfer market. Having signed two players so far – Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai – Jurgen Klopp would ideally add three or four more.


According to Sky Sports, Liverpool have started talks with Fluminense midfielder André Trindade, 22, while Roméo Lavia is still a target with two offers submitted so far.

The combination of these two signings could be a good mix for Liverpool, but one signing certainly won’t be enough when it’s a younger option. Lavia, for example, is just 19 and has had just one Premier League season under his belt. Bringing him alone would be an almost justifiable risk if someone else (like André) was coming in January.

Brazilian magazine UOL report that Fluminense want to keep their midfielder until the end of the season, meaning the company will be reluctant to sell for another six months.

Elsewhere, it is now known that Levi Colwill will not be leaving Chelsea this summer as the talented England centre-back has signed a new six-year contract. But if not Colwill, then Liverpool will have to find another solution at the back.

The club’s new captain, Virgil van Dijk, currently lacks a suitable replacement at left-back, while there is a big difference between Ibrahima Konaté and Joël Matip on the right. Given how much the right sideline is used with Trent Alexander-Arnold moving into midfield as part of his hybrid role, it’s a crucial place to play properly. At his best, Konaté is close to perfection, but he can’t play every minute and is at risk of injury.

Signing a left-back is a top priority for Liverpool, but who that player is remains to be seen. Now that Colwill is off the table, maybe other names will pop up.

In an ideal world, all of these changes would have already been made. With the season opener against Chelsea just around the corner, bringing in a new midfielder before that seems unrealistic. However, if someone in that role walks through the door before then, it will have a huge impact on how Liverpool perform this season. Get it right and the rest of the team looks exciting. If you’re wrong, there could be plenty of goals conceded if Alisson Becker faces a busier than usual period.

The only certainty is that more players will come and adding Lavia and Andre in midfield would be ideal. While Fluminense wants to keep the latter, Spanish outlet AS reports that for a higher fee, Liverpool can remain the player if they are to force the transfer.

Getting Lavia now and André in January would be the next best thing before Thiago loses Alcântara at the end of his contract next summer, but it could lead to some short-term pain in the meantime.

Once the midfield is in order, signing another defender is a must. This must be done to avoid Van Dijk and Konaté coming under too much pressure. As Liverpool have already shown, things can fall apart quickly if you don’t have enough quality options. In this context, at least three other signatures remain ideal. In a perfect world, two defenders could strengthen that area of ​​the pitch, but that might be too much in a short time.

Because of that, Liverpool’s next squad would look like this from here:


Goalkeepers: Alisson, Kelleher, Adrian


Defenders: Alexander-Arnold, Bradley, Konaté, Van Dijk, Gomez, Matip, New recruit, Robertson, Tsimikas


Midfielders: Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Lavia, André, Jones, Elliott, Thiago, Bajčetić, Morton (as well as young players who may be involved, including Bobby Clark)


Attack: Salah, Gakpo, Díaz, Núñez, Jota (plus young players who will be involved including Ben Doak)
