Liverpool are hoping to fill several holes in the squad during the summer transfer window. 

The Reds already addressed and improved one glaring weakness with their first summer signing. 

Jurgen Klopp's side announced the signing of Ibrahima Konate from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig in an effort to avoid another defensive injury crisis next season.

After a season that saw first team defenders Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez all go down with season ending injuries, bringing in an additional centre-back was almost a guarantee.

Another signing that seems to be a shoe in would be a midfielder to replace FC Barcelona bound Georginio Wijnaldum.

Georginio Wijnaldum and Jurgen Klopp look on after Liverpool's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace at Anfield.

However, Liverpool also need to improve their striking options as Divock Origi is set for an Anfield exit this summer and if reports are to be believed, the Reds could be close to signing his replacement.
