How Liverpool could line up next season: Werner and Havertz included

Jurgen Klopp has enjoyed a brilliant couple of seasons with Liverpool and their dominance in the Premier League has them on the cusp of a maiden crown.

It’ll be the first time in nearly 30 years that the Reds have claimed the country’s top domestic prize and their first in the Premier League era.

The difficult thing for the Liverpool boss next season will be to maintain the high standards that have put his team 25 points clear at this stage of 2019/20.

With that in mind here is a look at the potential Liverpool line up next season should they managed to land a few reported targets during the summer months.

Goalkeeper and back four

Alisson Becker has been injured on a couple of occasions this season but it’s fair to say he is comfortably the first choice.

The £67 million stopper is unlikely to be replaced and at 27, he has several years left ahead of him.

Similarly at full-back, Liverpool won’t be considering making any changes.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has 14 assists this season and is quickly becoming one of the world’s best right-backs.

Andy Robertson on the left-hand side is also brilliant and the two together are a nightmare for opposition full-backs.

At centre-back perhaps one change might be made.

Virgil van Dijk is one of the world’s best defenders and won’t be going anywhere but alongside him, there could be a change.

Liverpool have been linked with a move for Sevilla defender Diego Carlos and his pace could be a useful asset.

El Desmarque claims he might be available for around £65 million and he could seriously improve Liverpool.

Middle of the park

Jordan Henderson has been brilliant this season and he will be expected to captain the team once again during 2020/21.

He might find himself playing in a different system next season, however, especially if Timo Werner is signed.

That could mean that alongside him is young sensation Kai Havertz.

 

Liverpool boss Klopp is a massive fan of the German wonderkid but at £100 million he might prove out of reach.

If he doesn’t and Liverpool can add him, he could prove to be the goalscoring midfield gem that the Reds have been craving.

A change in the system would perhaps seem harsh on Naby Keita, Fabinho and Gini Wijnaldum.

Klopp, however, must do what is best for his team.

In attack

The front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have been a revelation for Liverpool during the last two seasons.

There has been some talk of Firmino leaving for Bayern Munich in the summer but that does seem unrealistic.

The front three will probably remain in attack but in a chance of system then will drop slightly deeper to make way for Timo Werner in attack.

The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield and will cost Liverpool £51 million (Bild).

Werner has plunged 27 goals and registered 12 assists during 2019/20 and his arrival at Liverpool would make for a brilliant piece of business.

Here is how Liverpool could line up during 2020/21:
