Mellor excited at Koulibaly linkes, Liverpool told to sign attacker this summer, Klopp told £70 million target will be sold

Koulibaly will be sold, Liverpool told to make move for attacker, Koulibaly offer made by Reds in Liverpool news roundup..

Ex-Liverpool star Neil Mellor is excited to see the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly linked with a move to Anfield.

Regarded as one of the finest teams in Europe right now with some of the best attackers in the game, there isnt much that Jurgen Klopp needs to improve on in the summer transfer window.

But there has been some speculation in the media linking Liverpool with a move for Koulibaly, who is regarded as one of the finest defenders in the game, and the perfect partner for Virgil Van Dijk.

And Former Reds striker Mellor opened up on the supposed targets: “It’s exciting to see Liverpool linked with them as they are all excellent players. Koulibaly is one of the best centre-backs in world football.

“I think the club has shown they will back Klopp – so if he really feels one of these players will improve the team and squad, I’d expect them to back him in the market this summer. You are talking big money for all of them but with [Virgil] van Dijk and Alisson, the club have proved they are willing to back the manager if he believes certain signings are critical.”

Pressed further on where Liverpool may look to strengthen, with Klopp’s side fast closing in on a first Premier League title triumph, Mellor said: “Liverpool’s starting 11 is incredibly strong, so you are probably looking more at supplementing the squad that truly dislodging a starter.
“Timo Werner was linked but he has now signed for Chelsea.

“Liverpool, with the exception of Van Dijk and Alisson, haven’t spent massively on transfer fees. If they are recruiting from a position as reigning Premier League champions that is really powerful.

“If I was to pinpoint one area, it might be to get a bit of back-up in the final third so they aren’t always relying on [Roberto] Firmino, [Mohamed] Salah and [Sadio] Mane.”

Sky Sports’ Jamie Carragher says Liverpool need to strengthen, particularly in the back-up for their front three…

Regarded as one of the finest teams in Europe right now with some of the best attackers in the game, there isnt much that Jurgen Klopp needs to improve on in the summer transfer window.

But the German boss knows that he will need to keep the club moving in the right direction if they are to stay ahead of Manchester City in the Premier League, especially with reports their rivals will also be looking to improve in the summer.

And ahead of the transfer window, Carragher has opened up and urged Klopp to add another attacker to the world class trip of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah.

He told the SUN: “The front three are as good as anyone in Europe but whenever one of them is out, there is a massive drop off. When Liverpool dropped points at Manchester United, Salah wasn’t playing.

“That’s why Liverpool need to strengthen the front three. Divock Origi is a legend for Liverpool as he’s scored big goals at big moments but doesn’t have quite the quality. Is Minamino part of the front three? Not for me.

“The front three are very robust and don’t miss many games but if Liverpool were to lose one of them, especially the two wide players, for a lengthy amount of time they could have a real problem next season.”

Duncan Castles has told the likes of Liverpool that Kalidou Koulibaly will be sold during the summer transfer window.

Koulibaly has been outstanding for Napoli over the past few seasons and his performances has attracted all sorts of interest from the games biggest clubs, with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and even Barcelona all joining Chelsea in the chase for the defenders signature.

Napoli do not want to lose their big man, but know the interest is too strong to turn down, and with the coronavirus hitting clubs hard, it means that their big players will come into the market.

Now, amid the speculation, Castles has opened up told the likes of Liverpool that Koulibaly will be sold during the summer transfer window

Duncan Castles said on the SUN: “Gattuso has been told Koulibaly WILL be sold this summer.

“Koulibaly himself is open to that and is ready for a change of environment. He’s keen to move to the Premier League.

“Talk from Napoli is they could be looking at around £70m now for Koulibaly.”

Reports have claimed Liverpool have made offers to sign the big man, but if they managed to secure a transfer deal for Koulibaly, surely they would have the best defence in the game?
