Liverpool have though already agreed a deal to sign Naby Keita at the start of July, but were always likely to sign more players to build upon their stunning Champions League form and challenge at the Premier League title.

The Ivory Coast international is understood to be desperate to play European football next season, and will look to end his second spell with his boyhood club in the pursuit of furthering his career with a Premier League giant.
