Liverpool legend John Aldridge has suggested Jurgen Klopp should go for Tottenham Hotspur stars Lucas Moura and Heung-min Son – amid ‘uncertainty’ over the futures of Mo Salah and Sadio Mane.
Salah was linked with a £150 million exit from the club, with Real Madrid and Juventus apparently both keen on the Egyptian superstar.
But the former AS Roma winger does not feel the time is right to move on though, according to The Mirror.
Sadio Mane has also been loosely linked with a move away from the club this summer, with Real and German champions Bayern Munich said to be keen.
Aldridge reckons Spurs duo Moura and Son would be ideal signings for Klopp if either surprisingly left.
He wrote for the Sunday World: “Moura is a tricky forward who could slot into the team if any of the front three were out and the same could be said of his team-mate Son Heung-min, although I would be surprised if Spurs allowed the South Korean to leave after his outstanding season.”
With the pair having just won the biggest prize in club football, it would be a major shock if either were to leave Anfield this summer.
Liverpool fans react
Most Liverpool fans know there is little danger of Salah or Mane leaving.
But some did speak warmly of the duo, in particular South Korean star Son (£22 million from Bayer Leverkusen, BBC Sport), who enjoyed a wonderful season in 2018/19 in which he made 30 goal contributions (20 goals, 10 assists):
Son but won’t happen.
