Premier League side Liverpool are looking to complete three new signings before the end of June, according to reports.

The Reds have had a poor season by their standards with Jurgen Klopp’s side leaving their best form of the campaign too late to make the top four.

Fifth-placed Liverpool – who play already-relegated Southampton on the final day of the season – will have to settle for Europa League football next term with seven wins in their last eight matches not good enough to drag Manchester United or Newcastle United out of the top four.

And now Klopp is planning to bring in a number of new signings to improve his squad with midfield a big priority as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Naby Keita all get set to leave Anfield at the end of their contracts.

Football Insider claims that the Liverpool boss is hopeful that the Reds will ‘complete three new signings by the end of June’ with his transfer team ‘prioritising deals for central midfielders, a centre-back and a right-back, while a backup goalkeeper is also being considered if Caoimhin Kelleher leaves this summer’.

The report adds that ‘bringing in multiple midfield targets’ is their ‘top priority’ and Liverpool are ‘growing increasingly confident’ of securing a deal for Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister in the near future.

Liverpool are understood to be keen to get a number of deals done early so that ‘they can join up with the squad for the start of the club’s pre-season tour’.

Andy Robertson was recently linked with a move away from Anfield with Spanish giants Real Madrid said to be interested in a £44m deal for the Scotland international.

Los Blancos reportedly want Robertson to replace Ferland Mendy with the France international’s injury record convincing Real Madrid to entertain offers if they arrive this summer.

However, former West Ham and Celtic striker Frank McAvennie reckons Robertson’s compatriot Kieran Tierney “is better” if Real Madrid are looking for a left-back.

“It is good for Scotland and Scottish football,” McAvennie told Football Insider.

“They were talking about Kieran Tierney as well. I think Tierney is better than Andy, I think he is a better defender.

“I think either of them would fit in at Real Madrid. Either one alongside Vinicius Junior would be magnificent.

“I could see it working with either of them but Liverpool certainly need a revamp.”
