Even after a possible departure of Philippe Coutinho continues to Liverpool road in the rush hour. Hoffenheim could be there this week, the first to be a victim of, Arsenal the second.

With games against Hoffenheim (the return for a place in the CL, was the 1-2 in Germany) and Arsenal is Liverpool for an important week. A good start in the Premier League underlines the ambitions to be a top to spin, and after a year without European football wants Anfield once again enjoy that midweekwedstrijden at the highest level.

Is the core there is enough armed, now, the past weeks, the Brazilian Philippe Coutinho on a departure to Barcelona aasde? Yes, I do. Of course, wanted to give the Reds their champions keen to hold on, but even without there is a luxury. Sadio Mané, Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino, Divock Origi, Chelsea acquired English promise Dominic Solanke, and Danny Ings: they crowd together in the attacking compartment.

It was also the Egyptian Mohamed Salah, who three years ago chose Chelsea but there is little to the box came. Chelsea loaned him out to Fiorentina and then Roma, to him that last season finally took over. Liverpool offers him a revenge on the English fields. The truth commandeth to suggest that Liverpool’s number one actually Kylian Mbappé was, but that was not possible.

The argument of Jürgen Klopp was clear: when Mané last season to the Africa Cup left and the Reds with some injuries, had to deal, was the machine stationary. For the new year seemed to be Liverpool’s game with Chelsea, but then dropped him back, and finally fourth to finish. The core was not wide enough, concluded Klopp, who noted that his team tackle was on the counter and on a standard application.

In each line wanted the German, therefore, like to strengthen. Salah was an important first pawn. Two others are there (yet). Klopp, the Bundesliga is properly followed, had at season’s revelation Leipzig midfielder Near Keïta seen, a 22-year-old Guineeër. Ideal for Jordan Henderson a helping hand, found Klopp. The Germans rejected his bid, however. Final? We will be on 1 september know. Because the defense kopbalkracht could use, wanted Klopp Virgil van Dijk to Southampton away. The Dutchman wanted to be happy and text with Klopp, but when Southampton there air got, complained about the behaviour of Liverpool to a player to approach without permission), after which the Reds withdrew. Final? Also, we will be on 1 september.

Without those two reinforcements is Klopp looking for prices. In goal Simon Mignolet, who is a strong match played against Hoffenheim, and the striker Origi, who is looking for a move. And perhaps even a future all-star on the right: in Hoffenheim, scored Trent Alexander-Arnold. He already has since his sixth at the club, and last year he came to the A-core. His dream? Captain of Liverpool. Steven Gerrard ‘s footsteps. In his biography told the icon of the eighteen-year-old as ‘one to follow’.
