If nothing else last weekend’s 4-1 win over Stoke City proved that Liverpool have some exciting young talent at the club which looked at realistically will over time not just save the Reds money in the transfer market, but hopefully start bringing back trophies to Merseyside.

All that apart we do expect manager Jürgen Klopp to be active over the summer, with several names already being linked with a move to Anfield that include Udinese midfielder Piotr Zielinski.

The 21-year-old Polish international is currently on loan at Empoli, but has confirmed that he has been approached by Liverpool saying: ‘There is a lot of truth in rumours about Liverpool, Jürgen Klopp is interested in me, we had some talks’.

Besides Mario Gotze another German being linked to Anfield is Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels, a player any Liverpool fan would welcome with open arms.

And while Hummels does not talk about a possible move to Liverpool, he has hinted that now might be a good time to make a move.

‘I don’t necessarily want to [leave], but I have to make a big decision. I have been back and forth a lot,’ Hummels told Bild.

‘Age gives you a feeling that you don’t have forever to win. I realise in every year I don’t win a title, I’m closer to retiring.’

With just about every Kopite to a man expecting Christian Benteke to leave during the summer, a name being touted as a replacement for the big Belgium is 21-year-old AZ striker Vincent Janssen following his 22 goals this season in the Dutch Eredivisie.
