Barcelona star Pedri named amongst six players Liverpool are ‘targeting’

A recent report from Spain has credited Liverpool with an interest in six players.

Liverpool rebuild on the cards?

Liverpool have been one of the most dominant forces in English football over recent years, barring of course last season when they experienced a serious injury crisis.

But, when fit and firing, the Reds still have a stellar starting line-up capable of giving most sides a go.

However, there is an argument to be had that Liverpool’s recruitment of late has not been all that impressive, and it could come back to bite them in the near future.

The Reds have a number of key stars who are now either in their 30s or very close to it.

Jordan Henderson is 31, Roberto Firmino is 29, Mohamed Salah 29, Sadio Mane 28, James Milner 35, Thiago 30, Joel Matip 30 and Virgil van Dijk 30.

Even when ignoring their ages, it is not often that you see basically the same 11-13 players continue to maintain such a high level over such a lengthy stretch, with squads, even after winning league titles, generally requiring a refresher with some new faces.

Liverpool, though, have not been the most effective when it comes to adding depth in recent years, with Ibrahima Konate this summer and Diogo Jota last their only real signings with the future in mind.

Liverpool ‘targeting’ six players

However, the Reds now appear ready to fix this.

As mentioned above, Spanish outlet Fichajes has claimed that Liverpool are targeting six players, all of whom are fairly young, and would fit into Jurgen Klopp’s setup.

These players come in the form of Mikel Merino, Jude Bellingham, Carlos Soler, Harvey Barnes, Pedri and Karim Adeyemi.
